Radio Nostalgie

It's cool to live alone. It's very hard to do in Poland. There's a book written by American Poles which says you know you're Polish when... you try to entertain forty people in fifteen metres squared...

When I first went to France I lived alone. It was the first time. I went a little mad. Perhaps I wouldn't have gone quite so nuts if I'd not had the radio permanently tuned to Radio Nostalgie. There was dancing. Here are some of my favourites: (good luck)


Serge Gainsbourg: Elisa


Elisa - cute. Check out the British accent on Ms Birkin. Pire que le mien...
'Cherche-moi des poux!!'

Pierre Bachelet, Vingt Ans:


I'm the one with the sunglasses on the right.
'J'avais vingt ans eternellement' 'C'etait des vacances en des chevaux!'

Edith Piaf, Milord:



'Laissez-vous faire Milord... venez dans mon royaume...'

Uhh... the song about 'ogórki'...


I know that rabbit!!

and finally Mme Sarko



Slightly concerned by the guy with the candle in the background.

Thanks for listening. It's been a good nostalgie trip for me.

I wonder what Polish songs I will be looking up on YouTube in two or three years time...
