Carla Bruni - Those Dancing Days are Gone

An Italian-born, French supermodel turned songwriter and musical artist, brings us a song with lyrics by late, great Irish poet W.B. Yeats - an unlikely and unusual combination to say the least!

But that is what Carla Bruni has brought us with "Those Dancing Days are gone", a brilliant track from her "No Promises" album, released earlier this year. All of the songs on the album are based on lyrics of poems by some of the world's greats - Emily Dickinson, W.H. Auden and Dorothy Parker among them.

I have worked out my interpretation of the song, and posted it to my Soul/Rhythm & Blues page: Guitar chords and lyrics for Soul R&B songs

Enjoy your music!
