1st May 2015: Jean Sablon – Prenez Garde Au Grand Méchant Loup!

Language – French

Cover of ‘Who’s Afraid of the Big Bad Wolf?’ (literal translation – Beware the big nasty wolf)

Sorry, this should have been posted yesterday,  but I fell asleep.  No matter.  Here it is, a fabulous French version of the song, sung by Jean Sablon with André Ekyan et son Orchestre Jazz from 1934.  The song was written by Frank Churchill (with additional lyrics by Ann Ronell) and was used in the 1933 Disney cartoon, ‘Three Little Pigs‘.  Interestingly, LL Cool J covered this for a Disney album, ‘Simply Mad About the Mouse: A Musical Celebration of Imagination’.  Sadly, not in a foreign language, so I can’t use it here.  But I suggest you check it out, for curiosity’s sake if nothing else…
