Termagant Tuesday: “The Autumn Leaves,” Edith Piaf

Standard

 

Okay, I’ll admit, I don’t really like this song.  Like, at all.  I think it’s maudlin and stupid.  (Also, who ever gets sunburned hands?  Seriously?  Anyway.)  But – Edith Piaf could sing an economics textbook and make it riveting.  And, since it’s the first day of autumn here in the northern hemisphere, I kind of had no choice.  No!  Really!  I didn’t!  What else was I going to post?  “Autumn in New York?”  I’m not in New York.  “California Dreamin’?”  The singer is taking a walk in winter.  Really, my hands were tied.  Unless you know of alternatives?  Tell me you know of alternatives.
