Michel Polnareff『愛の願い』Michel Polnareff -Love Me, Please Love Me
February 5, 2021
わーっ！お正月、節分と来て次はバレンタインデー！忙し〜！ 年に一度の特別なチョコレートを、と言う事でスイーツの街、自由が丘も色んなお店でバレンタイン限定商品が並んでます。 バレンタインデーと言えば… またまた小学生の頃の …
Wow! New Year, Setsubun and Valentine’s Day next! I’m busy!
By saying that special chocolate is once a year, Valentine’s limited products are lined up at various shops in the sweets town of Jiyugaoka.
Speaking of Valentine’s Day …
Another story when I was in elementary school.
I really wanted to give the original chocolate to the boy I loved, so I prepared a chocolate bar from a few days ago and was wondering what to do. Finally, on the day of the event, I just unwrapped the chocolate bar and had it in my house. I rewrapped it in foil and handed it to the shy boy I met in the park. The face of the child who received just flat silver paper without wrapping … I don’t remember. He only remembers to hand it over.
This song that revives such a bittersweet memory is Michel Polnareff’s “Love Me, Please Love Me” in 1966. The sweet melody conveys your sad feelings with all your might.
It wasn’t until this time that it had a unique appearance.

突然ですが私、自分の気持ちを伝える時に説明が足りなかったらいけないな、とか間違って伝わらないように、とか色々考えて話が長くなるんです。 あ、ご存じでした？ だからきっと食レポとかも向いてなさそうです。誰にも頼まれてません …
Suddenly, when I express my feelings, I have to explain enough, and I think about various things so that I don’t misrepresent it, and the story becomes long.
Oh, did you know?
Therefore, it seems that food repo is not suitable. No one has asked me.
I long for it in simple, short words, but it’s sad that the story ends with just one word, so please keep in touch with me!
The song is “Just Say, Just Say” with a mellow tone from the album of Diana Ross & Marvin Gaye released in 1973.

早いもので新年がスタートしてもう半月になりますが2021年も皆さまの日常にサラウェアをおそばに置いていただけましたら嬉しいです♪ 本年もどうぞよろしくお願いいたします。 そんな思いを込めて今年第一回目は私た …
It’s been half a month since the New Year started early, but I’d be happy if you could put Sarahwear by your side in 2021 as well.
We look forward to working with you this year as well.
With that in mind, the first of this year is from our heart’s Bible, Burt Bacharach’s album.
“Close to you” is famous for Carpenters, but this time it is this version sung by Bacharach himself.
The refreshing performances of Bacharach’s piano and orchestra seem to wash my heart.
There are various concerns, but I hope that 2021 will be a little calm! ︎

毎年この時期が来ると新年を迎えるための準備に気持ちは焦りますが体は動きません。それは自分のせいなのですが、特に今年はあっという間に年末に連れてこられたような気分です。 色んなイベントがおあずけになった分、来年に向け期待が …
Every year when this time comes, I feel impatient to prepare for the New Year, but my body does not move. It’s my fault, but especially this year I feel like I was brought to the end of the year in no time.
Expectations will grow for next year as various events are added.
I hope the situation will improve soon.
Many covers were sung in this year’s music column, and each one has a different impression, and all of them are good songs, but I chose the astringent original.
Leonard Cohen he was a poet and novelist in addition to a musician.
The original was shocking because I listened to the gorgeous version first, but the gospel-style chorus has a feeling of the end of the year and I want to listen to it.
We hope you all have a good year.

急に寒さが増したと思ったらそれもそのはず。気づいてはいましたけどもう12月も後半です。いよいよクリスマスです。 街の色んな所でクリスマスに向けて飾り付けがされ、キラキラ輝くイルミネーションにうっとりしたりプレゼントは何を …
If you think it’s getting cold suddenly, that should be it. I had noticed that December is already in the second half. It’s finally Christmas.
It’s a season when the outside is cold but warm, with decorations in various parts of the city for Christmas, fascinated by the glittering illuminations, and wondering what to give as gifts.
And although the busy end of the year is approaching, let’s cheat the impatient feeling and spend it now! Please! ︎
I feel an affinity to the sound of the familiar voice and harmonica. Stevie Wonder’s Ave Maria is recommended ♪
『Your Eyes』『Your Eyes』

遥か昔、小学生の頃。徒歩30分位かけて隣町の学習塾まで通っていました。 塾のお友達は私の通う学校のクラスメイトより身なりも話題もちょっと大人っぽくてお友達になれたのが嬉しくて勉強どころではありませんでした。 そんな遠くま …
A long time ago, when I was in elementary school. It took about 30 minutes on foot to go to the cram school in the neighboring town.
My friends at the cram school were a little more mature than my classmates at the school I attended, and I was happy to be friends with them, so I couldn’t study.
I wonder what I was going to do so far …
The neighboring town is close to the downtown area, and my friends were accustomed to going to the movies with their children alone, which was cool.
When I was invited to join me, I felt like I was a little grown up.
The day of farewell will come soon, but my memory is vague and I don’t remember how I spent the last time with everyone.
As a junior high school student, I moved, and my friend’s memory remains in the sixth grade of elementary school.
I wonder what kind of adults everyone is.
It’s been a long time, but this “Your Eyes” is the theme song of the movie “La Boum 2” starring Sophie Marceau, which will be released after that, and listening to this song reminds me of those days when I was longing for boys and girls in the neighboring town. It will be a tune.

秋はお月さまがきれいですよね。 なのにことごとくお月さまを見るのを忘れてしまいました。先日もお客さまとお月さまがきれいと盛り上がったのに帰り道は晩ご飯の事で夢中になり空を見るよりスーパーに向かいまっすぐ突進してしまいまし …
The moon is beautiful in autumn, isn’t it?
But I forgot to see the moon. The other day, the customers and the moon were enthusiastic, but on the way back, I was absorbed in dinner and rushed straight toward the supermarket rather than looking at the sky.
I want you to manage my appetite with the mysterious energy of the moon.
How about tango while watching the moon?
“Tango Lunaire” The tango of the month is from the movie “TANGO” released in 1998.
Aside from the story of the movie, I went to the product sales corner to buy a CD immediately after watching the movie.
Produced by film music composer Lalo Schifrin, it is full of enchanting songs from familiar tango representative songs to original songs.
It’s a song that I rarely listen to, but sometimes I want to listen to it.

秋が段々深まってきて寒さも感じるこの頃。 少し前まで暑くて鬱陶しかったマスクがこれからは冷たい空気からも守ってくれる嬉しいアイテムです‼︎マスクって便利です。 電車の中で携帯見ててちょっと笑っちゃってもマスクしていれば大 …
Around this time, autumn is getting deeper and I feel cold.
The mask, which was hot and annoying until a while ago, is a nice item that will protect you from the cold air from now on! ︎ Masks are convenient.
Even if you look at your cellphone on the train and laugh a little, it’s okay if you wear a mask, and listening to music and lip-synching …
Although the meaning was different from the mask of the title of the song, this “Masked Night” was recorded in Pierre Barouh’s album “VIKLNG BANK” released in 1976, which is familiar in the movie “A Man and a Woman”, and Drew This is one of the fashionable songs that my older sister listened to when she was a child.
I didn’t understand the meaning of the wonderful song, so I took my WALKMAN (nostalgic) to school, listened to it together, and danced in a circle.
It’s such a memorable song.

皆さんはどのような秋をお過ごしですか？ 今回は芸術の秋という事で選んでみたのは、バッハの代表曲で式場とかでお馴染みの『G線上のアリア』のメロディでブラジル出身のトリオ エスペランサがポルトガル語で歌っているこの曲です。 …
What kind of autumn are you all having?
This time, I chose Bach’s representative song, “Air on the G String,” which is a melody of “Air on the G String,” sung by Brazilian trio Esperanza in Portuguese.
In the a cappella group of three sisters who have been active since childhood in the 1960s, “Esperanza” means “hope.”
It is included in the album released in 2010 after working based in France for a while and returning to Brazil for a long rest.
The beautiful a cappella singing voice, which is different from the classical music of solemn or magnificent performance, makes you feel close enough to sing a famous song with a humming song.
Why don’t you listen to it leisurely during the long autumn nights?

色んな風物詩を感じられないまま過ごしてる今年。 ようやくという気持ちとそしてあっという間に、これから秋が始まります。日本特有と言われてる四季。秋を長く感じていられたら嬉しいな♪私の一番好きな季節です。 『私のお気に入り』 …
This year I’m spending without feeling any of the various traditions.
With the feeling of finally, and in no time, autumn is about to begin. The four seasons are said to be unique to Japan. I would be happy if I could feel autumn for a long time ♪ It is my favorite season.
“My Favorite Things”. This song, originally sung as a musical, is the same, but I was taught the originals of various masterpieces with the cover of Sergio Mendes.
There are various versions, but this one is also stylish. Ah, I want to go to Kyoto! ︎
