anyone know where I can get an mp3 of "Ne Me Quitte Pas" by Sting?

It was on the shape of my heart cd single and on the I shall be released album.

Jeeze lady, this is an English speaking forum.

I guess if El Jefe can get me a copy of Shut Up Sheela, this place can produce a Sting song.

I don't bandy my tongue around just any parts, ya know.

By the way, does anyone have the original German recording of "Don't Lick the Syrup Off My Douche-Waffle"?

if you're going to listen to that foreign tripe, credit a REAL french singer, like Nina Simone:

Thanks, but I have the Simone and the Brel and several others.
But there's this valentine's day performance with all french songs and the client remembers the Sting version because it alternates between french and english and would like it as a duet.
We have the lyrics from the Sting version, we just need to hear the arrangement.

Did you try Sting?
On Youtube? That is strictly in Francais.

I think I have what you're looking for - will PM you once I've uploaded it to someplace you can grab it from. It's Sting doing it live all in French; that's the only recording I've found so far. But it might be the same arrangement.

That would be great. Or you could save time and effort by emailing it directly to:
ginjg
at
spymac.com

or
fruitbatboardello at ix.netcom.com

and yes you all can use those addresses if you want to bypass PM lag

The Sting discs called "I Shall Be Released" are shockingly hard to find information about. But I turned up someone with copies and sent him email; you're cc'd on the note.
