Non, Rien de Rien

Non, Rien de rienNon, Je ne regrette rien
Ni le bien qu'on m'a faitNi le mal tout ça m'est bien égal
     It is funny how children recognize songs in the radio from movies they have seen; when for us the memory comes a bit different . . . 
     Saturday we were watching "Madagascar 3" when the French "animal control lady" started singing "non, je ne regrette rien" probably for you this will be new, my goodness!! it was news for my mom and she is 74 years old.
     Non, je ne regrette rien, is a beautiful song from the 1956 which Édith Piaf made famous in 1960 soon before she died, ironic. . . . No regrets.
     How do I know this? 
     In 2007 I came across "La Vie en Rose" where Marion Cotillard brought to life the story of Édith Piaf, I saw the movie then and her story took a piece of my heart. Édith Piaf is a forgotten artist but not for many. I'm proud to say I have her music in my I-pod. 
     I'm overwhelmed about her music, her story, her life; about this beautiful song that tells me "no for nothing, but I have no regrets" and about her last words, "every stupid thing we do in life, we pay for it". I feel sad that I didn't get to meet her, but I'm happy to think that I got to know her.
Enjoy this video, I hope it gives you that love that only Édith Pian can give in her songs. 


Scripture of the Day

"Bring ye all the tithes
into the storehouse, that
there may be meat in mine house,
and prove me now herewith,
saith the Lord of hosts;
if I will not open you the
windows of heaven, and pour
you out a blessing, that
there shall not be room enough
to receive it
