It's a version of "Mamy Blue" which seems to have been a big hit just about everywhere except the US. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mamy_BlueThere's hundreds of versions, one cheesier than the other. This one's definitely my favorite so far...
Thanks, Raffael. I had never heard the song. Wonder if it is known in UK?
Lucky you!The song is a cornerstone of 70s Europop, but its epicentre was definitely France.Just about everyone recorded it. Making a Mamy Blue compilation would be a mere 2 hours work. One of the first versions, not that bad:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=046XMynjDnQJust learned about this Finnish version: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hB6nSE8-XKgBut your turkish child version rules.
Nice Pop Tops video - http://youtu.be/6ukpjLT4KrwLess inspiring is the version by Stories (Michael Brown, ex-The Left Banke) http://youtu.be/kJ_Jjp5CeIg
