Charles Trenet, the last of the legendary French chanson stars, recently celebrated an incredible sixty years in the music business - and he’s still going strong today ! Trenet will inevitably go down in music history as the man who wrote the unforgettable "La Mer". (Trenet claimed to have penned the song in just twenty minutes while in the middle of a train journey between Narbonne and Carcassonne !) "La Mer", which has been translated into dozens of different languages and rocketed to the top of charts all around the world, has undoubtedly become one of the most famous French songs of all time - while its author has become a veritable living legend !
