Mauriat is Dead
Mr. Mauriat has just died - Mr. Paul Mauriat that is.
Paul Mauriat, a French conductor whose arrangement of "Love is Blue" topped U.S. charts in the 1960s and who garnered a large following in Japan, has died. He was 81.
I never downloaded the "Love is Blue" MP3. Coincidentally a fan of Mauriat (not me) happened to email me the file, just because he liked it so much, he thought I would like it also.
The sentiment was nice, and so was the music.
