Sing, Sing a Song Saturday

Sing, Sing a Song Saturday is all about me discovering something that is different. I don't want to post things that you and I have more than likely heard before. I want to find something different. It could be from another country, someone singing from the streets of NY, and more.

One of my favorite movies is Amélie. If you have never watched it, it's a must see. I never thought I could love a movie that has subtitles. In fact when I found out it had subtitles I went to put it back on the shelf. A guy in the store convinced me to buy it. He said it's really a great movie. I caved. I was so glad he influenced me to get it. It's a movie about a girl - Amélie that tries to do good for people. She's not trying to get attention. In fact most of the things she does good for people is purely anonymous. She sort of sits on the side lines to watch how the people react to her good deeds.


In the movie there is great piano music that plays thoughout different parts of it.  I never looked into who played the music. The artist's name is Yann Tiersen.

He plays the guitar, synthesizer or violin together with intruments like the melodica, xylophone, toy piano, harpsichord, accordion, and typewriter. He started learning piano at the age of 4, violin at the age of 6, and classical training at several musical academies.

Yann Tiersen will be undertaking a unique cycling and signing tour across Brittany, France.

My wife would like that movie. She has all kinds of movies in French, but they are mostly things like the Lion King. She was a French teacher before she switched over to special education.
