Dear Everyone:
Two of Richard Clayderman's popular piano pieces are "Lyphard
Melodie"
and "A Comme Amour".
Could you please translate the titles into English?
I can figure out the meanings of most of Clayderman's other works,
but
find these two most confusing, especially by the words "Lyphard" and
"Comme".
Thank you for reading and replying!

Are these links any help?

This would not be an exact translation, since "comme amour" would be
something like "as love", and "A" I do not believe is a word (in this
context). Perhaps Ah! would be.

I think it's like the English "F for Freddie", "A for Alan/A comme Alain"
"A for love" wouldn't work, of course, "A for amour" ?

Sounds good to me. The poetically licensed person who translated it on the web came up with "Why Say Goodbye?" as the title. Well, maybe so, but that is a very very free translation.

Anyway, something to go on.
