La Foule (1957) - Édith Piaf

Listen to the "break" (or rather, when the horns come in) of this song, nothing like it to make you appreciate the whirlwind of life. La Foule is French for The Crowd.

The lyrics are by Michel Rivgauche and the music by Angel Cabral.

The song is featured on the excellent British 2004 film My Summer of Love and the lyrics say: "Carried by the crowd, which trails us, involves us, moves us from the other".
