A Star Is Born With Lady Gaga's La Vie En Rose

Songs I Love:

After watching the latest movie version of A Star Is Born with Lady Gaga singing La Vie En Rose (Life In Rosy Hues), I realised that oldies, featured in tons of movies, are truly goldies and that they become hits again with the younger listeners. 

Without further ado, here's the latest lady to sing this classic signature song composer and French singer Edith Piaf, written in 1945 and released in '47. 

Covered by quite a number of famous vocalists like Dean Martin, Louis Armstrong, Tony Martin and Bing Crosby, it has been featured in many movies as background and as a feature song. Grace Jones recorded it and Madonna sang it during a tour.



Strange though when I asked local musicians, many of them have never heard of this song, let alone familiar with the lyrics or the melody. Jazz and standards enthusiasts know this one though. Pronouncing the title is a challenge in itself, so roughly it's like: /la vee ong roz/

Just enjoy it folks, the latest 2018 version by the lady with the loveliest voice today Stephanie Joanne Angelina Germanotta.
