Tournent les violons - Jean-Jacques Goldman

In Tournent les Violons, from his best-selling 1991 album Chansons pour les pieds (Songs for the feet), French singer-songwriter Jean-Jacques Goldman turns into a troubadour-style narrator to tell us a story of hope, desire and disillusion against a medieval-like background.
