FlinterFile: Michel Sardou- Les Lacs Du Connemara

michel-sardou-les-lacs-du-connemara-trema

In 1981, Michel Sardou released quite a strange ‘chanson’. The whole idea for the song started with the synthesizer of Sardou giving a sound which was like a bagpipe. They thought it would be nice to write a song about Scotland, but had no idea about what they could write. When looking for documentation, they found a brochure about Ireland and changed the scenery to Ireland. The song about the lakes of Connemara, which is in Ireland, includes quite some Irish parts: wild and rough nature, legends, names like Sean, O’Connell and other references to Ireland like Galway and Oliver Cromwell. The song became a hit, though it was quite long, running for 6 minutes, with the last two minutes only instrumental. In the Netherlands it was number 9 and in France it was number 1. Enjoy
