There is a comercial on TV lately which has a bit of a song by Edith Piaf in the background. So today I went to youtube and started to listen with wet eyes the beautiful songs that Edith Piaf sang with one of the most beautiful voices onm earth. Youtube has been such a wonder for all of us! Whenever we want to go to another time and want to listen to a song from long time ago, there it is. I listened today to all of the songs I loved by Edith Piaf and then was marvelled as she also sang FranceĀ“s National Anthem, La Marsellaise. The singer died very young, at 46 yearsof age. But for the people of our generation she was the most beloved singer. Have you listened to any of her songs? La vie en rose is one of the most popular, along with Je ne regrette rien.

I did not see the movie. But years ago, there was a ballet about her life with her songs. Beautiful and moving!

I've heard of Pilaf but never listened to her singing. I tend to listen to tenors when listening to opera; I specifically love Pavarotti.That said, opera isn't my favorite music genre, but I will go check her out on YouTube. I'm just (re)discovering all the YouTube wonders. I probably could spend 90% of my waking time on the internet, but you know, Life.

I know both of those two that you listed at the end and even have a copy of her singing La Marseillaise somewhere. I also used to like Mireille Mathieu who took over from where Edith Piaf left off.
