Stanislav wrote to me looking for a French song that’s in a Ukrainian commercial:
I stumbled upon your website while looking for one song. Although my request might sound a little strange, I thought I’d write you and ask anyway. I live in Ukraine and there is a TV commercial here with a French song in it which I really like. I don’t speak French, but I managed to hear some words in it. It sounds like a young girl is singing it, and I could definitely hear her sing different French names, something like Andre, Francois, Rebecca Et Moi. The song is pretty fast and by the end she names more and more names. I don’t know if you know it, but it sounds pretty popular, very 60’s-ish.
The French Song is from the 60’s and it’s called Ivan, Boris et moi. It was sung by Marie Laforêt. She does indeed sing a lot of names…
Anton, Ivan, Boris et moi
Rebecca, Paula, Johanna et moi
Sacha, Sonia, David et moi
Dimitri, Iona, Natacha et moi
Here are some links for this song:
Many thanks to Monique Palomares at Mama Lisa’s World en français for helping to find the lyrics to this song!
