La Vie en Rose
La Vie en Rose," Louis Armstrong "La Vie en Rose," written in 1945,
was the signature song of French cabaret singer Édith Piaf.
The title translates as "life is pink,"
for those of us who don't speak French,
and the song is about reclaiming love during times of war.
Piaf's remains the definitive version,
but something about Armstrong's deep vocals and
wailing trumpet make this one spectacular as well.
