C’est Si Bon, #385


We bought a new car a couple of months ago, and with it came a 90 day trial for XM satellite radio.  I have to say, though we are enjoying some of the music, we’re not really interested in buying a subscription.  If we regularly took road trips, we may feel differently, as XM always gets reception, but I just don’t understand the need for it.  I would rather buy the all-over WiFi subscription for my IPad and have online Pandora Radio coming through my Bluetooth.  These are just not the necessities of life though, and I am content with regular radio and uploaded music and old-fashioned CDs.

That said, and as our XM satellite days are coming to an end, I have enjoyed being able to choose and listen to music from different decades.  Primarily, I listen to the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s channels, but my husband and daughter have begun to listen to music from the 40’s and 50’s.  It has become “their” thing, and it is sweet to watch their new-found common interest.

I studied French in college, and though I’m a bit rusty, I can slide my way through broken conversation.  My husband, knowing I have some French skills, came home asking what “C’est bon” means.  It took me forever to figure out what he was talking about, but then we figured out he was in search of one of the songs he had been hearing on his XM satellite channel.  “C’est Si Bon” sung by Eartha Kitt is my husband’s and daughter’s new favorite tune, and I think it is so adorable that they share this song together.  That is why I am bringing it to all of you, and that is why it is my song of the day.

Here is a link to Eartha Kitt singing this Jazz standard.  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6BvL-i–8Ws  She is so much fun to watch, and I know you’ll love watching her just as much as we do.  So friends, I hope your day is “si bon” and that you enjoy dancing around to this snappy tune.  Groses bises! xo

P.S.  My daughter wanted me to blog today about how she lost her tooth last night.  So here it is…..way to go to my baby girl and her visit from the tooth fairy!  Congratulations, honey!



About tucsonsongstress

I am a music teacher for children ages 6-weeks-old - 8th grade. I am also a camp songleader and a Jewish music specialist with and without my husband who is known as Shabbat Scott. We love singing with people of all ages all over Tucson. My "song of the day" idea originally started by playing music challenges on Facebook. I loved choosing songs, and my friends seemed to love reading and listening to my choices. I have decided to continue a daily blog (or as daily as I can manage) and tell you all some stories through some songs that have touched me either in wonderful ways or by annoying the heck out of me. Hope you all enjoy this blog! Happy singing!
