During the Grimm episode The Waking Dead, the villain of the week hummed and occasionally sang a song.

  • What song was it? (Bonus points for audio link.)

  • If there's a particular reason for the song (either that he was humming at all, or why that particular song was used), that'd be really cool to know too.

  • I wasn't planning to watch this week's episode yet, but did so just to see if I could answer this. Unfortunately I really don't have a clue so I'm hoping somebody else will be able to shed some light on it. – Anthony Grist May 15 '13 at 19:21

    I really struggle to make out the words between his accent and the volume, but it definitely contains "Bonsoir", "danse", and "beaucoup". Google doesn't immediately come up with a good match for that. – C. Ross May 22 '13 at 2:28
  • This is driving me and my wife a little crazy, but we still haven't been able to figure it out. Haven't found anything useful yet, not even what language the villain speaks (I'm assuming Cajun ...) – C. Ross Jun 19 '13 at 0:48

You can sometimes find it in music credits, however I found this answer when googling the search terms "grimm the waking dead music"


It is identified "Bon Soir Dame", I believe originally by Ed Ames,

However youtube also shows several recordings by folk groups such as the Sandpipers and others (Search Bon Soir Dame).

As far as the danse/beaucoup, those are French, which is spoken by many Cajuns and could be a French version of the song or the characters own addition.

  • Thanks, though I swear I did that google search a dozen times (probably before that post was made or indexed). – C. Ross Jun 28 '13 at 1:10
