Edith Piaf Says Everything Will Work Out

In class this week we take swing-out to France, where we storm the Bastille with a song in our heart. That song is “Ah Ca Ira,” the anthem of the Women’s March on Versailles, a core event of the French Revolution. In this video Edith Piaf sings a very rousing version, the translation of which is much more confrontational than ours. Get into the revolutionary mood today; tomorrow we’ll sing the same song, but much sillier, and with animals.
