Or, you can scroll down and play the music directly from this page.

(If you are reading from your IPad,  playing the music from this page is your only option.  To listen to the music while you read, open the blog in a new page while leaving this one open.)

ABOUT THE MUSIC OF PARIS IN THE SIZZLING SEVENTIES

Paris in the Seventies was a time of insouciance, glamour and excitement, and nothing reflects this more than the music so popular in the City of Lights at that time.  As you read through the posts, click on the Music Player to relive the atmosphere of the era.  It is my hope that the songs I have chosen will transport you to a time and place that was truly magical, and will live in my heart for eternity.

ABOUT PITOU’S FAVORITE SONGS

Pitou was a romantic, but with a definite edge.  He could sing “Foxey Lady” to you with the devil in his eyes  (“I’m coming to get cha”) and, the next second, listen to Charles Trenet with tears in them as he reminisced about his childhood.  What can I say… he’s got a sexy soul.

ABOUT WILHELM KEMPFF PLAYING BEETHOVEN’S PIANO SONATAS

Pitou loved classical music and introduced me to the very best renditions by the greatest conductors of Europe. The mono recordings, by Kempff, of Beethoven’s piano sonatas were first recorded by Deutsche Grammaphon in the early Fifties and, once you listen to them, you won’t wont be able to settle for any other recording.

 DISCO MUSIC OF THE SEVENTIES

The music in the Paris nightclubs was not what you randomly heard on the radio in the States.  Here are two of my favorites that Pitou and I danced to.
