Sure, a picture is worth a thousand words…unless those words are, “Melon! 2 Euro/kilo! 2 Euro/kilo!” Click through the audio clips below to get a feel for the atmosphere at markets all around Paris. You’ll note that some are much noisier (more vibrant!) than others. If you listen closely, you can begin to tell which markets are full of gaps and lulls, when a market is empty and I’m able to walk quickly past vendors, and even when a market is crowded and I’m stuck by the tomato guy for a good 45 seconds.

Bastille

Brune

Crimee Curial

Edgar Quinet

Gros LaFontaine

Mortier

Popincourt–non-market day

Pyrenees

Reunion

Saint Charles

I’ll be annotating these clips over the next few days, so check back in for a more detailed analysis of the recordings.

Baustelle | Le rane

Ligabue | Un colpo all’anima

[note: I haven’t taken the time to listen to/translate any of the Italian lyrics too carefully–if they’re terribly awful, I’m sorry!]

OK Go | This Too Shall Pass

Finally, I would include some awesome World Cup anthems, but my searching for the perfect version of Waving Flag is getting on Jie’s nerves, I can tell… (but there are versions in Spanish! and in Arabic! So interesting!)

While the Campo de Fiori market is in full swing, it is much too noisy for melodies to carry. Once the vendors begin closing up their stalls, however, musicians start to play. And after the musicians move on, the square becomes even quieter…
