5.0 out of 5 stars Trenet Was The Best February 14, 2004
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is a great CD. He wrote like a poet, which he was, and sang like an angel. "La Mer" and "Douce France" are anthems. If you have trouble understanding the French words, do a web search for: "paroles des chansons" and you can get the lyrics.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastique! June 11, 2003
Format:Audio CD
I couldn't get that lovely song from Steve Martin's movie LA STORIES out of my head. Discovered it was "La Mer" by Charles Trenet, and had to have it.
This is a wonderful collection of pre-WWII songs that capture a certain era in Paris. Picture boozy American writers, avante-garde artistes, and other lost souls having a wonderful last romp in Paris caberets in the thirties.
En fin, this is romantic music and goes well with brie and chardonnay.

5.0 out of 5 stars Inspirational Music December 18, 2004
Format:Audio CD
As a writer and a life guard I found something compelling in 'La Mer.' The words have a haunting appeal to me as I love the sea,love to swim; I can listen to the music while I write and enjoy the way it inspires me. I've listened to other version of this music but always get drawn back to the original by Charles Trenet.The words, the sentiments and the music are just perfect. I even wrote a short story to salute La Mer.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not as hoped July 10, 2005
By Ariom
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Love La Mer so bought this CD. La Mer far and away only track I will listen to again! The others seem like jolly holiday songs to make you giggle, of course if my french were better they may be so much more. If you love La Mer but don't speak french buy a compilation CD

2.0 out of 5 stars La Mer September 26, 2007
Format:Audio CD
I bought it because the music, La Mer, by Charles Trenet, was the background of the movie, Mr Bean on Holiday. The particular song brought back memories, but the remainder of the disc was less inspiring
