Re: I just found a new folk song.....so did Pete
I guess/hope that lots of Xroaders know that this in actuality is a French folk song from the 1780s, or at least the melody is. It's actual name is "Plaisir d'amour," or "The Pleasures of Love," and it was adapted from a trad tune by Jean-Paul-Égide Martini with lyrics by Jean-Pierre Claris de Florian - lyrics that speak of the ultimate sadness of all romantic love and that are hugely superior to the popped up Elvis version. Just sayin'.
