La Vie En Rose
This song is just spectacular. Anyone who has seen Wall-E will recognize the tune.
Earlier this year, my new boss (who is French) hosted a "La Vie En Rose" themed soiree. The party proceeded much like a wedding reception sans wedding ceremony. Toward the end of the evening, bossman grabbed a microphone at the piano and summoned his young daughter to the front.
They performed this song together with dad playing piano and daughter singing in French and then English. It was saccharine sweet but really cool. It was certainly surprising to see my boss, the finance beast, rocking a piano. C'est la vie!
