The French song playing over Ted Lasso end credits from one of France’s most famous singers

French pop singer Marcel Amont’s ‘Tout Doux, Tout Doucement’ was the French song playing over the Ted Lasso, Season 3, Episode 8 end credits this week.

The song began playing as Ted is saying “Goodbye” to his son Henry and to his ex-wife, and continues as they leave and he watches them get into the waiting taxi.

It continues to play as his wife turns to wave, and as the end credits begin to roll.

Marcel Amont’s ‘Tout Doux, Tout Doucement’ is actually a cover of the original The Fleetwoods song ‘Come Softly To Me’, which was released by the American vocal group in 1959.

Amont’s version of the a cappella track was one of a number of covers recorded of the song by some of the world’s most prestigious musicians.

They include The New Seekers, Lesley Gore, Frankie Vaughan, and American singer Brenton Wood.

Marcel Amont’s ‘Tout Doux, Tout Doucement‘, however, was the only one released in French, and it was released as the title track of his 1959 album of the same name, as well as appearing the same year on the singer’s Bleu, Blanc, Blond album.
