"7 Seconds" by Youssou N'Dour with Neneh Cherry

Birthday wishes go out today to Youssou N'Dour, the Senegalese songster who in 1994 teamed up with Neneh Cherry to record 7 Seconds; a pan-European and multi-lingual effort, it topped charts throughout the Continent and around the world, in some nations breaking duration records. The song's theme concerns that moment of purity when a baby is born, before it discovers the pain of the world, and is accompanied by a stylish video, which was directed by French fashion photographer St├ęphane Sednaoui.
