MUSIC FOR APRIL 2021

‘Je t’aime’

Ah, Paris in the spring — what better garden to grow romance? But the real-life romance that inspired this song took place, instead, in Vienna and Stockholm during a long-ago July, which may say something about the prevailing mood. In short, “Je t’aime” is an interpretation, somewhat unfair, of an affair I had with a Swedish girl in 1976. I wrote the song in 1982, the early days of the Steve Chapman–era Fashion Jungle; revived it for the Boarders; and retained it for Howling Turbines, heard here rehearsing it on Aug. 8, 1999. Bass, Gretchen Schaefer; drums, Ken Reynolds. ”Je t’aime” copyright © 1983 by Douglas L. Hubley. All rights reserved.
