Listen to L'AMOUR C'EST COMME UN JOUR by Charles Aznavour.

When it comes to things that Charles Aznavour released in 1962, this song comes a very, very distant second place. But just because this tune isn't Bob Dylan's favorite movie doesn't mean it's not worth hearing.

L'amour C'est Comme Un Jour is Aznavour in his prime--I love listening to him because he's like Frank Sinatra with no...not baggage, but no reference points. (If you're American), you can listen to him sing and not have any preconceived notions on how he should be heard or who the music is for or what it means. Of course, he's much more beloved and ubiquitous in Europe, as these youtube videos of the song suggest (I have to say, though, the first and only comment on this offering cracks me up).

Have a good Tuesday!
