“It’s Nicer In Nice” – The Boy Friend

Music and Lyrics: Sandy Wilson

Paris is undoubtedly the most famous city in France, the setting of thousands upon thousands of books, plays, and movies, including the silent film Paris released on this day in 1926.  No matter how famous Paris is, there are still some who prefer a different city.  The Boy Friend, a spoof of 20’s era comedies like the aforementioned film, proves this when one character extols the virtues of another French city, Nice.  When in France, be sure to visit both cities so you can decide for yourself if it’s nicer in Nice.
