This week on A Propos, discover some of the most inspired and inspiring, honest and provocative lyrics written by francophone artists. Based on our listeners’ enthusiastic comments, we prepared a compilation of some of host Jim Corcoran's most appreciated translations of great French lyrics. 

You’ll hear some noble, poetic and uplifting lyrics. Some of them offer a different take on the same theme: getting away from it all, moving, hitting the road; others speak of going home or consoling loved ones. And finally, don’t miss a very unusual and delightful lyric by France’s Philippe Katerine, which is perhaps the weirdest love song ever written — for a chicken. 

 

Below is where you can hear all of Corcoran’s translations from this edition of A Propos. If you want to hear more translations, visit the audio section of A Propos’ webpage.
