Subject: French 'S]wonderful' song
From: JTT
Date: 24 Oct 00 - 05:44 AM

I'm going crazy for months now looking for a recording of a French song with the chorus "S'wonderful, s'wondeful..."

It's *not* the Gershwin "S'wonderful, s'marvellous" one. This is a different song, with a fast talky bit and then the great chorus. They keep using it on car ads - currently Toyota - on this side of the Atlantic, which is driving me even crazier.

What is it? Please!

I heard a couple of local musos sing it - I know the song you mean, but I don't know the name or artist!! When they got to the 'wonderful' bit they put on european accents. I've never heard it otherwise but I'm bursting with curiosity now!

My guess is that you actually look for an Italian song by Paolo Conte. Possible or do you know it's French?

I vaguely recollect hearing something like this--perhaps it is the Maurice Chevalier song--

Anyway, Toyota's Advertising Agency is Saatchi and Saatchi, Los Angeles, and if you go to the Toyota website, and enter "advertising" into their search engine, you can get as much information as you want about all of their ads, including who wrote and produced them--if you make a few calls, I'll bet that you could even find out what record they got it off of--

Bizarre thing is that whenever I've heard the song sung by others they copy the Italian accent. Weird stuff.

I am sure that you are talking about "Via con me" by Paolo Conte

It's off the soundtrack of French Kiss, with Meg Ryan. Via Con Me, Paola Conte.
