La Vie en Rose (English version)

La Vie en Rose (English version)

Song: La Vie en Rose / The Three Bells

Artist: Édith Piaf with Robert Chauvigny and his Orchestra

Record Label: Columbia Records 38948

Recorded: 1950

Here’s an interesting record especially with the anniversary of Burial at Sea Episode 2 coming up soon.

While the original French version has been featured here before, Édith Piaf sang an English version shortly after her success touring the United States with Les Compagnons de la chanson.

As you may recall, all the records of Burial at Sea have been featured here before.

Here are the compilation posts for your perusal:

The Records Behind the Music of Burial at Sea Episode 2

Édith Piaf (left) with Robert Chauvigny (right)

Robert Chauvigny was a classically trained musician and arranged music for Édith Piaf for most of her career. He would also bring the accordionist Marc Bonel to work with the orchestra.

Together with manager Louis Barrier, the three would remain a stable constant throughout Piaf’s life.

Not only did Chauvigny tirelessly play the piano for rehearsal sessions and conduct the orchestra for “Milord” , “Le mots d’amour”, and “Non, je ne regrette rein”, but he provided the mysterious voice for “Un étranger”.

Listen to the original French version here.

Listen to the Piaf’s English version of “Les trois cloches” here.

I will admit I pretty much screamed out loud when this came on during the game.

Blue Moon
Frank Sinatra with Nelson Riddle and his Orchestra
Blue Moon

Song: Blue Moon

Artist: Frank Sinatra with Nelson Riddle and his Orchestra

Record Album: Sinatra’s Swingin’ Session!

Record Label: Capitol Records W1491

Recorded: August 22 – September 1, 1960 

Released: 1961

Location: Radio New Vegas, Launch trailer

Today happens to be the 100th birthday of ol’ Blue Eyes himself.

Sadly, he only had one song in the Fallout: New Vegas soundtrack, but what a choice to be had echoing against the starlit skies and garish neon.

“Blue Moon” was written by the legendary songwriter team Rodgers and Hart with recorded versions by Mel Tormé, Elvis Presley, and as a doo-wop hit for The Marcels.

As Mr. New Vegas says:

“Gonna play a song for you right now, and it’s about that special someone you find only once in a Blue Moon.”

This was Sinatra’s 14th studio album under Capitol Records, peaking at No. 3 in Billboard.

The tracklist is as follows:

Side 1:

When You’re Smiling

Blue Moon

S’Posin’

It All Depends on You

It’s Only a Paper Moon

My Blue Heaven

Side 2:

Should I

September in the Rain

Always

I Can’t Believe That You’re in Love With Me

I Concentrate on You

You Do Something to Me

Many of these songs were jazz standards from the 20s and 6 tracks were re-recorded from his last Columbia album, Sing and Dance with Frank Sinatra.

With the help of rearrangements by Mr. Nelson Riddle, Sinatra certainly does make this a swingin’ session.

Our communities and the climate are under attack. On April 29, join people across the United States as we march for a clean energy economy that works for all of us. A historic resistance against Trump’s administration is rising to action, which means now is the time to push for a new vision.
