Although she had a very successful career, her personal life was full of hard moments, and that is something that you can feel when you hear her very unique and distinguish voice. She died at the age of 47, but her songs are well a live in your hearts.
There are two songs that are absolutely amazing, deep and breathtaking and that really make me goose bumps every single time. And maybe they are the her most well known songs. If you don't know them, you should!
Non, Je ne regrette rien always reminds me that we should not regret any decision. That what happens happens, and that's life.
Non, Rien de rien / No, nothing of nothing
Non, Je ne regrette rien / No, I regret nothing
C'est payé, balayé, oublié / It's paid for, swept away, forgotten
Je me fous du passé / I don't care about the past
La vie em rose is just the most romantic song ever written. Reminds me of Paris and just walking along the Sene on a cold winter night holding hands with my special someone. I have a very special memory with this song in the background, at Île Saint-Louis. It's a very very special song to me.
Quand il me prend dans ses bras / When he takes me in his harms
Il me parle tout bas / He speaks to me in a low voice
Je vois la vie en rose / I see life in pink
Il me dit des mots d’amour / He tells me words of love
Des mots de tous les jours / Words of everyday
Et ça me fait quelque chose / And that does something to me
