Could you choose a French song for our Coronavirus times? Learning French takes a new dimension when you understand the French culture including French music, from classical to modern songs.
We have selected a song by Charles Aznavour, one of France’s most popular singers and enduring cultural embassadors.
Covid-19 has forced us to distance ourselves from family, friends, colleagues, fellow French students… Do you remember “Nous nous reverrons un jour ou l’autre”? This 23 year-old song is uniquely nostalgic and it also beautifully expresses hope.
Here you can access one of the many recordings available on YouTube.
The text was written by Jacques Plante and the music was by Aznavour.

Although Aznavour died in 2018, aged 94, many of the 1000 songs that he wrote or co-wrote remain an integral part of 20th century France. Amongst his most popular songs are some beautiful texts that dare to talk about important issues. He certainly brought a significant contribution to French culture through music.
So what would be your choice of French song for our Coronavirus times?
