I Do Like The Tune.

For all of us who missed Bastille Day yesterday I offer La Marseillaise. It is a damn fine tune and here’s what the National Assembly in France tells you about it.

For those who like the tune this site has a variety of formats, I think Rugby World Cup semi-final one is my favourite, along with the one in Casablanca.
