Does Calvados rate as third world?

I KNOW that you KNOW that, in Europe (including France), everything but Paris rates as third world.

actually, the correct title is "Ballad of A Soldier"
as with other tracks, the Italian translation on the soundtrack was literal
not idiomatic.*
In America, a song with a story is called a "ballad"
IN Europe a ballad (or ballade) is an instrumental piece.

I was pleased that in his dvd commentary, Frayling used the correct term "Ballad"
- [he must have read my album review 8)}

bruce marshall


Like the track 'The Strong'. This is a mistaken translation of il Fort, which should have meant fortress or castle - the place where all of the injured Confederate soldiers are dying



*worst example of this in with DYS - "Mesa verde" is literally translated as "Green Table"!!! :o

Not in the Europe I live ...

A ballad is never an instrumental piece of music. A ballad always tells a story.

They are also transcribed in the SL Encyclopedia.

In the Europe I live in, Unkown is right.
It’s almost as if there were several different countries in Europe.

It varies from country to country. Here in Germany a ballad is sort of a song based on a poem, also a story of a special person or event (as in THE BALLAD OF CABLE HOGUE :) ) .
In France a lot of old dance music is labeled as "ballade", also in classical music (mainly piano, remember Richard Clayderman's "Ballade pour Adeline" ? Tortured us to no end 40 years ago. Of course the first thing I learned on the piano back then :) ).

What does Wiki France think?

https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ballade

It says it was a poem, but now:

Quote
En dehors du domaine littéraire, le mot ballade s'est appliqué à un type assez vague de chanson populaire, lente et mélodieuse : c'est le sens commun à la fin du xxe siècle.

Did you just try to pull a Titoli on me?

The important point is:
Frayling used my music research in his commentary (h :)there are other examples also)
What an honor!!!!!
