Listening to Charles Trenet

The season is almost upon us when the best music is old music. I have a handful of phonograph albums that I will play on a venerable turntable when the weather is cold enough and the evenings are dark enough. A friend's recent mention of classic French vocalist Charles Trenet led me to this beautiful scene of record playing from the 1943 movie "La Cavalcade des heures":

What a beautiful scene, Donald. I believe it's translated something like, "Where are they now, my old loves?" Appropriate for both Trenet and Mom here...

From the old loves, first there remains furor and sorrow, but with time, long long time, nice and wonderful tender moments come back too.

in my experience,

thanks for this song, I did not know it came from a movie.

But from old friendships sometimes can remain more, not "only" that...
