and now?

When I started this blog site in 2007, it was all sort of spontaneous and directionless, and I started to name it "What Now??", which reminded me of a song from the '60s, "What Now, My Love?", which I sometimes play on the piano and which had the original French title of "Et Maintenant?" (literally "And Now?"), so I decided to class up the title by going French -- a trivia moment just in case you ever wondered where this blog name came from.

So here, for my Monday videos, are the song "Et Maintenant?" in French, sung by the guy who made it famous, Gilbert Becaud, followed by the English-language version, which was covered by many singers back in the '60s, this one done by a very sweaty Elvis Presley
