Song Lyric Sunday – Name’s the Same
Today’s SLS is a bit different. We’re supposed to find a song by someone that has the same name as ours. Here’s what Helen has said:
So, let’s just get right to it. Put your thinking caps on, break out your playlists and get to work! Our theme for Song Lyric Sunday this week, brought to us by the lovely Kirstwrites, is “a song from an artist/singer who shares your name”. While this might be a difficult challenge, you could always just post a favorite song if you aren’t able to find an artist/singer that shares your name along with a song you like. We’ve got to make it difficult sometimes, right?
Thanks Helen and Kirstwrites! 🙂
So, I could only think of two singers with my name, Barbara. Those were Barbra Streisand, and Barbara Mandrell. While these are very well-known and I do like some of their songs, I wanted something different and new to me. I spent some time googling, and you know what, there aren’t that many singers named, or called Barbara that I could find. Shocking, I know, as you’d think there would be a lot. Oh well, I kept on looking until I found this one, and I’d never heard it, but turns out it was a really beautiful song. The video is also so enchanting.
The singer is Monique Andree Serf, and goes by the stage name of Barbara. She sings in French, and the video’s lyrics are in French. I did find an English translation of the song. This song, “L’Aigle Noir” is said to have sold 1 million copies in only 12 hours!
Hope you enjoy hearing this song as much as I did.
***NOTE*** it says you have to click the YouTube symbol to watch the video there. 🙂
“L’Aigle Noir”, by Barbara (Monique Andree Serf), was released in 1961, from her album, “Unforgettable Melodies”, and was written by herself.
