Thomas Dolby + Rachelle Garniez:  Play “La Vie en Rose”

This video was pleasing to hear and in my opinion is impossible to analyze. Garniez first began to ring a number of bells. The sound of the bells was hypnotizing in my opinion. The reason why those bells were hypnotizing was that they had the prefect pitch to fit the song. While the bells went perfectly into the song, though I am uncertain if the ringing of bells was part of the original song.

Then she began to sing in the songs traditional language, French.

Unfortunately, I have no idea about what the song was talking about. The way the song was sung was interesting, for it never kept the same tone. Her singing changed from a harsher tone to a softer tone. This made the song unique, for it was a slight(I think) modern twist to the original song. While I am unable to understand the song, it was very soothing and well fitted for the entertainment section of TED.
