Folly of the Week – Je t’adore, je t’aime

Each Friday, Andrew and friends will tell you about something that caught their attention this week – a song, a book, a video game. If you have suggestions for Folly of the Week, send it to us at inpraiseoffolly@gmail.com.


I was browsing through my music library yesterday, and got on a major Disney kick, jumping around between The Lion King, Mulan, even Winnie the Pooh. However, I think my favorite Disney track in my music library is the one linked below – Ma Belle Evangeline from The Princess and the Frog.

The song is performed by the inestimable Jim Cummings – who’s many voice acting credits include Winnie the Pooh and Tigger (too), Darkwing Duck, Pete (from Goofy), and the Tasmanian Devil, as well as hundreds of others across television, movie, and video game.

For those who haven’t seen the movie, the song takes the amusing premise of a firefly in love with a twinkling star, and turns it in to a very touching love song. Listen below and tell me what you think.
