"If you are a stone cynic, the title song, Parlez-Moi D'Amour may strike you as cloying, especially when the violin comes in on the third chorus. But if you have a gram of sentimentality in your being, the song will haunt you. A woman asks another to speak to her of love, cautioning him that she does not really believe what he says, but that life is too bitter to survive without dreams. Listen to the background scratchiness at the beginning and imagine a 78 rpm spinning on a Victrola in a garret in Paris in the 1930's. The song is sweet and melancholy. Life is fleeting. Live and love while you can. Don't be surprised if you find yourself playing it over and over."

"LUCIENNE BOYER will always be remembered for PARLEZ-MOI D'AMOUR,perhaps the most famous FRENCH song of the pre-second world war era along with LES ROSES BLANCHES.Not the ideal greatest hits package of the singer,this nevertheless has some wonderful stuff like ATTENDS,LES FILLES DE LA NUIT,SANS TOI and VIENS DANSER QUAND MEME(also recorded by BERTHE SYLVA).There are many songs omitted here:UN AMOUR COMME LE NOTRE,VENEZ DONC CHEZ MOI etc.You can find those in other collections.YOUP ET YOUP is certainly not among VINCENT SCOTTO's greatest melodies.For the price asking for this cd,let's not complain too much."
