GILT playlist - The End

Everyone knows how Cat Howard's story end - or anyone with access to Wikipedia does.  But what about Kitty Tylney?  That, my friends, is a little more mysterious, and has to be left up to the imagination.  Not wanting to be too spoilery, but that last phrase is key.  Imagination is important.

However, so is this week's playlist song - Quelqu-un ma dit, by Carla Bruni.  Now, I don't go around listening to French music very often (I did, however, take four years of French in high school.  Totally useless, except for one trip to France straight out of college, when the ticketmaster at the Lyons train station looked at me after I used my best schoolgirl French to purchase tickets to Bordeaux and said, "Excuse me, but I do not understand English." Hmph.)  And I haven't put this song in here to appear more worldly-wise or cosmopolitan than I am (which is to say, not very.)  But I did see the movie 500 DAYS OF SUMMER, and the simple beauty of this song moved me.  And when I really listened to it, so did the lyrics, at least what little I could understand.  (There are ways to find the lyrics - and the translation - online, but I chose to come to my own conclusions).

My own version, based on what I heard, translated the chorus this way:

Someone told me that you loved me still....

It is possible, then.

Love opens up a whole realm of possibilities, does it not?  I chose to imagine that it does for Kitty, too.
