This song is about as un-French as you can get!

Nice song. If no one here knows then I would email them and ask for the name. Does the same song play on every Relais & Chateaux site?

Hi Plufmud,
The song is by Charles Trenet (of "Boum" fame). It is about the N7 and is called--surprise!--"Nationale Sept." Here are the lyrics:

De toutes les routes de France d'Europe
Celle que j'préfère est celle qui conduit
En auto ou en auto-stop
Vers les rivages du Midi

Nationale Sept
Il faut la prendre qu'on aille à Rome à Sète
Que l'on soit deux trois quatre cinq six ou sept
C'est une route qui fait recette
Route des vacances
Qui traverse la Bourgogne et la Provence
Qui fait d'Paris un p'tit faubourg d'Valence
Et la banlieue d'Saint-Paul de Vence
Le ciel d'été
Remplit nos cœur de sa lucidité
Chasse les aigreurs et les acidités
Qui font l'malheur des grandes cités
Tout excitées
On chante, on fête
Les oliviers sont bleus ma p'tite Lisette
L'amour joyeux est là qui fait risette
On est heureux Nationale 7.

I have the CD - my ex was from Narbonne, so loved Trenet, but that doesn't sound like Trenet singing. What would be a good way to send you the song? I can load it to itunes and save it as an mp3, and send it that way, maybe?

What is your email address?

my bad! That was Trenet singing, and I don't have the song - my 2 cd colletion has all the others, just not that one. But, you can get it on itunes, for 99 cents, they have it as Route National 7. They have a couple of his albums.

Rough Translation

Of all the roads of France and Europe
The one I prefer is the one the leads
By car or hitchhiking
To the sea shores of the south

National Seven
You have to take it to from Rome to Sète
Be it two three four five six or seven
It’s the road to success
Vacation road
That crosses Burgundy and Provence
That makes Paris a little neighborhood of Valence
And the suburbs of Saint Paul de Vence
The summer sky
Fills our heart with clarity
Chases the sourness and bitterness
That makes big cities unhappy
All excited
We sing, we celebrate
The olive trees are blue my little Lisette
Joyful love is there and brings a smile
We're happy, National 7.
