Amelie and the Rhyme of Another Summer Afternoon

‘Comptine d’un autre ete, l’pres-midi’ roughly translates to ‘Rhyme of another summer afternoon’.  This song rolls along so effortlessly and can be overwhelming if it catches you just right.  This entire soundtrack is a pleasure.  If you like the band Beirut, you’ll love this soundtrack.  The movie it’s from, ‘Amelie from Montmartre’, is also a visually stunning and expertly crafted story of a young woman searching for true love and beauty.  As the piano plays, I can see the light through the trees as I ride my bicycle gently in the warm afternoon.  Such beauty.
