February 8, 2012

Edith Piaf (1915-1963) is one of the most famous French singer in France and abroad. The song “Non, je ne regrette rien“, featured recently in the movie Inception, was recorded in 1960.



Note the negation “ne…rien” (“not…anything”) in the chorus :

Non, rien de rien / No, absolutly nothing

Non, je ne regrette rien / No, I regret nothing

Ni le bien qu’on m’a fait / Neither the good that was done to me

Ni le mal, tout ça m’est bien égual ! / Nor the bad, it is all the same !
