Soeur Sourire – Dominique

Vrolijk versje. Geen happy ending.

‘This song, Dominique, was written by a belgium nun called Soeur Sourire in 1963. She became very popular, and was also known as the singing nun. She eventually left the order, and tried to pursue her singing career, but failed. Along with her lover (she was a lesbian), she fell into severe depression and alcoholism. The two of them committed suicide together.’ (bron)

D*I*S*C*O!

    Tragisch verhaal he? Met dit nummer behaade ze zelfs in de VS een nummer 1 hit in 1963 (op het Philips label). Er komt binnenkort een film over dit verhaal uit.
