Worth A Quick Mention: Coeur De Pirate – Comme Des Enfants

Yes, this is a touch old, and yes, it’s French, but a good friend of mine showed this to me and I thought that it was just the bee’s knees. A fantastic example of how a great song can express emotion despite language barriers, you may pass this off as a generic cute-girl-playing-sadish-song-on-piano track, but I think that it’s really beautiful in a slightly juvenile, naive sort of way. This song would have about a million more hits if it was in English, I promise you. Apologies for not being able to find a link to download this fine tune for free (pirating Couer de Pirate?), but you can purchase it from iTunes here. Check out the surprisingly well-done video below. Bon ecoutant!
