"Auprès de ma Blonde" was a classic song sung in the French language. Originating in the 17th century, it was popular as both military cadence and a drinking song.

In 2367, Jean-Luc Picard and his brother Robert sang the song together after fighting in the mud in the family vineyard. (TNG: "Family")

Later that year, an injured and delirious Picard sang the song to himself while slipping in and out of consciousness. (TNG: "Final Mission")
