French Esprit


First Video: Göttingen (a town in Germany) by Pomme. First sung by French singer Barbara (Monique Andrée Serf) at the University of Göttingen in early 1960s, the song, a touching praise of the German town by a French singer, was credited for improving relations between France and Germany, after a long series of conflicts between them. These days, the two countries are close allies and cooperate on alliances like Airbus, EU, European Space Agency etc. An example of two nations that learnt the lessons of history. Second Video: Je m'appelle Hélène (My name is Helene), a hit single from the 1990s, by Hélène Rollès.
