This is a strange year with NO Spring. One day in June…. we just switched the heater to the Air Conditioner… and it looks like we will not have an Autumn!!!!

Every day in January gets a new Trah Lah Lah song… which it turns out is a lot of songs.  THIRTY-ONE of them.  Today’s song brings us to the realm of kid music.  A french version of the Big Bad Wolf who brings down some Tra la la on the three little pigs.


When I was little, I had a huge crush on Shirley Temple so she’s going to help you sing Tra la la today.

I’m crushed that I can’t embed this video. But just follow this link to the closing musical number in the 1940 movie Young People. Sing a little tra la la with Shirley Temple, Jack Oakie, and Charlotte Greenwood as the Ballantine family.  The audience sing along chorus harmonies at 5:23 are one of those gloriously 1940 era movie moments.

When things go wrong, it’s just the song to chase your cares away. a-Way. Ay-way.
Tra la la la what a merry world we live in.

Enjoy a little Trah Lah Lah wine with this one.

Mozart’s Turkish March never sounded so ridiculous. Here’s Valery Leontiev doing the a capella version with a fair amount of tra la las.

In direct competition with Édouard Khil Mr Trololo.

Today’s song is Regine’s Jamais Tra La La, a cynical look at life that claims it’s never as easy as Tra La La. I beg to differ. Wipe away those disco blues by opening a bottle of Trah Lah Lah and show Regine who is boss!

My Trah Lah Lah in Champagne continues and here’s a song that doesn’t actually have any tra la las in it but is on an album called “Champagne et Tralala” by Claire Lise. There is a song on this album with tra la las but I cannot find the video. So instead here is the extremely suggestive chanson erotique from the same album. Although I would like to point out that this is not why I’m in the region 😛

I’m spending a bit of time touring Champagne this weekend. But that doesn’t mean we can’t sing Tra la la like every other day in January.

Here’s a song from Die Fieldermaus perfomed by the Royal Opera

Sometimes referred to as the Champagne Song, this piece is about that king of drinks that made people sing Tra la la and think they could fly like bats by jumping off buildings. It’s a really weird opera. Anyway, you can pop a bottle of bubbly or a trah lah lah and sing along.

Today, we’re drinking trah lah lah with soul. Yesterday’s tra la la song was very funky and you can’t just switch gears from funk to something totally different.  So dialing it back a little with the less (but still quite) funky Tra la la la by Ike and Tina Turner.

Every day in January brings a new tra la la song.  Yesterday was a little too country for comfort, so it’s time to get funky.

The Great Deltas Tra La La La La

Come on now. Tra la la now. Open a bottle of Trah Lah Lah and enjoy the funk.

Today’s Tra la la song is from Patsy Cline.  A little bit of country music and a heavy emphasis on a triangle.  Tra le la le la *ding* triangle.

I know the Trah lah lah can lead to many shenanigans, but try not to get caught in any love triangles this year.
