Edith Piaf sings 2 Charles Dumont Songs

June 19, 2007

Run to the theaters to see the new movie based on Edith Piaf, La Vie en Rose (2007). The acting by Marion Cotillard is superb, in fact some of the best acting I’ve seen in my life. (Read Roger Ebert’s review.)

Here are two videos celebrating Edith Piaf. I am happy to report that a good deal of her music has been cleaned up. I have a 3 CD set of all the old crackly, poor fidelity songs which I look forward to tossing in favor of a new collection.

“Non, je ne regrette rien” (“No, I regret nothing”) is a French song written in 1956 which is best known through the recording made by French singer, Édith Piaf, on 10 November 1960. It was composed by Charles Dumont [plays piano here] and its lyrics, describing the singer’s defiant attitude toward the past, were written by Michel Vaucaire.

Charles Dumont: “Non, je ne regrette rien”

Charles Dumont: “La Foule”
