Alsace holiday #3 – Route des Cretes

Original playout date: 20 August 2007
Duration: 9:44

Lovely to remember the time my parents and I were enjoying Flammkuchen or tartes flambees together in lovely scenery in France. Contains a nice gallery section for the photos taken that day. I remember how that day the temperature down in the lowland was about 5 degrees hotter than up in the crests.

“This stunning footage of the Vosges is the third part of my Alsace holiday series from July 2007. Look out for the Vosges cattle, unique to the area, and their cow bells.

This time, I’d like to out this out with a little challenge for people to try and get in the comments (although all kinds of comments are welcome also as usual). The question is this, what is the track used in this clip? What is the name of the piece of music and the author? And, for a bonus, who’s the artist singing it (and in my humble opinion making the best extant performance of it)?


There is a copyright claim for No More Tears (Enough is Enough) on this video, however, this is not the song used, the robot screwed up big time as the actual song is Bailero from Joseph Canteloube. I cannot put this right however because to file a dispute, you have to tick one of the boxes as follows:
“I believe this copyright claim is not valid because:
I own the CD / DVD or bought the song online.
I’m not selling the video or making any money from it.
I gave credit in the video.
The video is my original content and I own all of the rights to it.
I have a license or permission from the proper rights holder to use this material.
My use of the content meets the legal requirements for fair use or fair dealing under applicable copyright laws.
The content is in the public domain or is not eligible for copyright protection. ”

Since there’s no box for “your robot got the wrong song” one can only assume that they are certain their robot cannot make such mistakes. Good thing there’s no death penalty for copyright infringement, that’s all I can say…

Quote of the clip: Sitting around like Mma Ramotswe… This just reminded me that I’ve been listening and following the Number ONe Ladies Detective series by Alexander McCall Smith for over ten years. Wonder when the next one’s coming out…
