It is a bit early for "Les Feuilles Mortes" (literally "dead leaves" -- the original of the song many know here as "Autumn Leaves") since there are only a few autumn leaves around, but the fall mood reminds me of my favorite version of the song and I haven't posted music in a while.
This version is by Yves Montand. I don't have the recording from my childhood, which is my very favorite, but this live one was on e-Snips. Enjoy.
Here's another live one:
I had another one up here, again with Montand speaking the poem first, then singing, but the eSnips link stopped working, so I have removed it. (Thanks to JohnieB for catching this, and boo to eSnips; the link worked when I posted it a day ago.)
I am cutting and pasting my comments on the author and lyricist of the song from the Comments section since many of you will be interested. (French folks, skip this, you know it already.)
"Les Feuilles Mortes"'s lyrics are by the 20th c. French poet Jacques Prévert and the music is by Joseph Kosma, also French, though born in Hungary. Here's a bio of Kosma. The two wrote many songs together, but Prévert was already a poet in his own right. Kosma wrote other music as well. Ken, as you will see, he was involved in your beloved movie Les Enfants du Paradis (Children of Paradise). So was Prévert, in fact. The dreaded Wikipedia is pretty accurate; see their bio of Prévert. We used to read his poems as children in France, as the bio notes. Prévert is in the curriculum!
