Europe in song

To celebrate Europe, I’ve put together a few of my favourite songs. Sorry Portugal, Denmark and the old Eastern block, my culture isn’t broad enough to know much about your music.

I have a soft spot for Charles Trenet. My mother knew all his songs. The nuns at her school taught them…

The music of my London student days.

Andrea Boccelli because I love this song.

Belgium is Brel.


Three in one (I know Norway isn’t strictly Europe). A Spaniard singing a song in German written by a Norwegian.

How to pick just one?

This makes me weep buckets. I know. Shame it’s not the whole song. I love Anthony Kearns.

A bonus to make up for it…
