French Version of This Song?

Driving in and out of Paris last summer we heard, sung in french, the Seal song of "Kiss From a Rose." Was that Seal singing? Did anyone else hear that? Any other familiar music you heard sung in the language of the country you were visiting?

Again, sitting here with the hubster, pondering the most essential questions of travel reflection.

Thank you all for your incredible memories.

Dr. Betty

Pretty sure that the song you heard was by a French singer named "Moos" - - it was a big hit in May 99. I am blanking on the actual title, but it had something like ya-da-da-rose in it...

I have been searching everywhere to find an album or any other recording by this guy. At the time, he had only a single, and I wonder if any album ever has made it to the shelves.

Rex, Moos's song Au nom de la rose can be found on his album "Le crab est erotique" (no, I'm not kidding) available at Amazon.com. Unfortunately, I don't think it answers Dr. Betty's question because the music was written by Moos et al. Did you like the song?

Hi,

Third Eye Blind's "Semi Charmed Life" in Italian, in a little restaurant in Venice. dooh-dooh-dooh, dooh-dooh-DOOH-dooh.

I doubt it was the original band.

Sue - - thank you so much!

And I still bet that what Dr. Betty heard was this beautiful song - - which does (superficially) ressemble what Seal's song might sound like, if sung in French.

Wonder if this can be found on Napster?

If you want to find it on Napster bear in mind two things:
1. Time differential to France - French Napsteroids go to bed, too; and
2. Don't forget the Words of R. Milhous Nixon: "We could do that, but it would be wrong."

Oy vey. No Napster debate here, please. I heard Sade's Sweetest Taboo sung by Les Nubians (beautiful sisters of African and French descent who grew up in Bordeaux) while driving around with friends in Montreal. Sounds just as beautiful as the original.

Well, I've never been to Germany, but I have two Peter Gabriel albums in German (sung by him).

I found the Moos song mentioned above but it's not even close. My recollection is that it sounded like Seal singing the song in French, I could almost bet that it was, but I can't locate it. Wait a minute, I have an idea, I'll be back later.

Okay, so I was wrong. but you found it? Online? how? where? On amazon? I'm headed in search of it right now. I've searched before, and I could never find anything about Moos - - not even on francophone search engines!
