Tune of the Day: Auprès de ma blonde

 Traditional French tune

This popular song, also known as “Le Prisonnier de Hollande” (“The Prisoner of Holland”) dates to the 17th century. It appeared during or soon after the Franco-Dutch War (1672–78), during the reign of Louis XIV, when French sailors and soldiers were commonly imprisoned in the Netherlands.

An English version of the song, titled “I love only one girl” (“the one I've got my arms around”), was sung by Elvis Presley in the 1967 film Double Trouble. The song appears in various movies (such as The Day of the Jackal) and in two episodes of Star Trek: The Next Generation, and is mentioned in many books. In Roger Zelazny's Nine Princes in Amber, Prince Corwin even claims to be the one who composed it!

Thanks to Ronald for suggesting this tune!
