Saint-Paul de Vence set to music

Michel Sardou

La java de Broadway

Laughing and dancing like in Saint-Paul de Vence.

Saint-Paul de Vence has inspired many French songwriters. They have often linked the village to holidays, particularly after the Second World War.

In Nationale 7 (1955), for example, Charles Trenet points out that the legendary road "places Paris in the suburbs of Valence and on the outskirts of Saint-Paul de Vence".

In Les Noctambules by Jean Ferrat (1962)
and La Java de Broadway by Michel Sardou (1977),
the village is synonymous with celebrations.
Saint-Paul de Vence is associated with nostalgia and love in eponymous songs by Serge Reggiani (2000) and Pierre Barouh (1983).

 

Marcel Mouloudji, Isabelle Aubret and Julien Doré have all sung its praises, and there's even an American folk group from Seattle called St. Paul de Vence!
