Soul Sundays: La Mer

December 18, 2011

I haven’t posted any French songs yet for Soul Sundays, so I thought this tune would be a nice addition. La Mer was written by French composer Charles Trenet while riding on a train in 1943 and has been covered by over 400 artists over the last six decades. This version by the Spanish singer, Julio Iglesias, was featured in the latest spy film, “Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy“, where it caught my eye. Enjoy!
