28th April 2015: The Singing Nun – Dominique

Language = French

Was this the first big Euro-crossover hit?  I felt that I should put this song on my blog – it’s important in the history of English-speakers learning about songs in other languages. Lyrics in the link below – an interesting read.  I am curious as to how this song became such a big hit in 1963, the beginning of possibly the most transformative decade of the last century.  Divine intervention, perchance?
