Yahoo Acquires Tumblr, Promises ‘Not to Screw It Up’
A lifetime comes and goes
And as my friend the rose said only yesterday
“This morning I was born
And baptised in the dawn
I flowered in the dew
And life was fresh and new
The sun shone through the cold
And through the day I grew
By night-time I was old”
The Rose by Françoise Hardy
The original singer for “Comme d’habitude” was with my father in school. Lot’s of singers sang it with its original French lyrics including, Michel Sardou, Mireille Mathieu, Lara Fabian, Cheb Khaled, Faudel and Rachid Taha. Frank Sinatra sang it in English and called it My Way, and you can see Elvis and Nina Simone singing it too. Also Gipsy Kings and Infierno 18 had a Spanish versions of it, as well as some Arabic singer that I never heard of before.
Finally, here is the original song by Claude François:
Koum Tara is an Algerian song, you can see it here being sang by Beihdja Rahal, it was also sang by the two worldwide known Algerians Cheb Mami and Enrico Macias. And finally, in the video above, it is played by a Chinese orchestra.
