Love this song by France Gall. It's seems to be based on the classical piece, the "fake Albinoni" Adagio in G Minor... which may or not be based on a baroque manuscript by Albinoni, but maybe was just invented by a 20th century musicologist and Albinoni biographer named Giazotto...

Also, "yeah, but you're not interviewing three Caucasian women today!" If that isn't gratitude and positivity in action and a model for all of us, I don't know what is. There is every reason for them to be bitter that they couldn't perform their song on television, but they're the opposite. An example for us all. Take what happens in stride, and find the positive in it. I needed this lesson.

@gtrdirect I agree. My heart was sinking and I felt so sad when I was hearing about that situation. And they when they said 'but you're not interviewing them', it put a big smile on my face. It made my day. We can all learn so much from that. This is an exemplary interview.

3) thanks for the best songs 🎶
