I searched the entire Internet to find this song from the movie La Piscine (1969). I don’t know whether it exists or maybe it’s just a short tune for the movie. In the party scene, two men are playing that song on the guitar and they are outside of the house by the pool. It's the scene right after Alain Delon opens the bottle at a party. Do you know what is the name of that song/tune?

It is approximately in the 41st or 42nd minute of the film and here is a link to a YouTube video with a timestamp:

Also, if you're not able to watch the video on YouTube, here's a clip: video file

  • This link can't be viewed in the US because of copyright claims. It does seem like there are clips available of portions of the movie. If possible, can you locate a short clip that has your scene in it? If not, can you record the audio and post it here? Feb 15, 2021 at 18:10
  • Sorry about that. I've just edited the post and added a link to a video file containing that scene. Feb 16, 2021 at 21:56

It's "Ask Yourself Why", performed by Sally Stephens and written by (the great and beloved) Michel Legrand, which composed the score for the movie.

  • This song is not the melody I'm asking about. This song comes after the scene in which two men are playing on the guitar the tune I am looking for. Feb 13, 2021 at 15:34
  • @AndreaGogic Sorry, I misread your question. I'm looking for it, it seems in a similar style to Legrand's music. Have you already tried to look for the end credits notes? Feb 13, 2021 at 16:04
  • No need to apologize. I agree that it's similar to his style. Yes, I have searched and the songs that are on the soundtrack don't contain this melody. Feb 13, 2021 at 16:20
