Singing songs in the French language

Why does the internet not leap to fulfill my demands for romantic French quotations suitable for Wimseyfic? Probably because I am not actually googling properly, or indeed looking at more than the first entry or so. This is because it is Monday and I am being idle. In the meantime, have various versions of Aupres de ma blonde.

The plaintive version. I have no idea as to the authenticity of the performance, but it sounds gorgeous.

The military version I can see how one could march to it, but I think it might be offputting for anything else.

And last but not least, the children's cartoon version, which explains all the words. I'm really not sure what the cowboy is doing in there.

Speaking of cowboys and bafflement, there is always the crossed-with-Sims version of Coward of the County.
