"MIRZA" de Nino Ferrer




You should listen to this song if : You've got a dog that drives you crazy !

About this song : A man is looking everywhere for his dog. Great success when it was released in 1965. Simple words and expressions to improve your French. Note that the music is inspired from an anglo saxon song (sung by Stevie Wonder), as are many many other "French hits" of the 60's and 70's in France.

About the author : Nino Ferrer was a very popular singer in the 60's and 70's. He got a bit trapped by the success of "Mirza", and classified as a "singer of funny songs". Besides "Mirza", his other most famous songs are "La maison près de la fontaine", "Le Sud", "Les cornichons", "Le Téléfon" and "Madame Robert". Unfortunately, not many people know that Ferrer sung other kind of melodies, and those who want to discover different aspects of his talents should listen to "L'inexpressible", "c'est irréparable", "et si tu m'aimes encore" (amazing remake of James Brown), "Pour oublier qu'on s'est aimé"...

Note : Why do I suggest different  albums for different countries ? Well, strange as it may seems, there is sometimes a HUGE difference of price for the same album in different countries ; and what is a good bargain somewhere is a total rip-off elsewhere. So, for each country, I usually look for the two or three albums that have all (or most of) the "must have" songs, and then I compare the prices and carefully weigh the pros and cons...
