"Pourquoi cet amour
Qui m'a fait chanter
Pourquoi s'amusait-il
A me faire pleurer?"

Listening to French pop singer Johnny Hallyday's 1960 song Pourquoi cet amour, I wonder why it wasn't a bigger hit at the time, as it's a nice song. I am also wondering if Hallyday had a cold on the day of the recording session, because it sounds to me as if Hallyday's mike might have caught the singer sniffling or breathing through a stuffed-up nose. Listen to the instrumental intro, before Hallyday starts singing.

Nice song, even if he was sniffling. :)
