Tallahatchie Day: "C'était le quatre juin"

This year it won't matter if you catch this today or tomorrow. Every third of June, this song runs through my head. But last year I said that the translation into French put it on the fourth. Don't ask me why.

"Marie-Jeanne", as written and performed by Joe Dassin, reverses the roles: a young man recalls how his family reacted when a girl he knew jumped off a bridge.

But if you like english, here is Tammy Wynette giving it everything.
