Charles Aznavour sings a classic!
« on: December 27, 2009, 02:48:48 PM »
My friend Ed Maranan, the Hall of Famer of the Palanca Awards for Literature, copied me the following note that provides a link to a YouTube feature of Charles Aznavour singing "I Didn't See the Time Go By":

"I was a minstrel of my time
who did not see the time go by..."

Charles Aznavour sings a classic! (In sentiment and thought, seems to be the opposite of "Je ne regrette rien," but equally beautiful.) And if only this song became the song of choice of wannabe crooners, instead of Frank Sinatra's "My Way," there might be less killings in karaoke bars and beer gardens, who knows...

N.B. (December 19, 2016) If I may add for the present time in our land, Ed, there might be less drug-related killings too that can conveniently be blamed on President Duterte’s war against his top pet peeve!-Joe Carillo

My friend Edgardo B. Maranan, a mutlti-awarded Filipino poet, essayist, fiction writer, playwright, translator, and writer of children's stories, passed away on May 8, 2019. He was 72.
