Cakes reign but a Day.
But Memory like Melody,

Claude Parent


Here are several songs by Claude Parent.
Claude Parent is famous for having dubbed Françoise Dorléac in the 1966 Demy movie "Les demoiselles de Rochefort" ("The young girls of Rochefort").
She won the Grand Prix Charles Cros for her song written in 1967 with Michel Legrand, "Un piano", namely performed by Colette Renard.
Gifted with a deep, elegant voice, she sang in the fifties "Loin de vous", the French version of "Only you".
From 1955 until the late sixties, she recorded at least ten singles.
Little is known about her, she supposedly passed away in 2007, aged 75.
Here is what Boris Vian wrote about her:
"She writes herself the lyrics of her songs (...) They are well done, clear, pretty. She is fair-haired, of medium height; her tone of voice is very charming, she has a big presence, natural or when recording. Moreover, she's highly moral."
Enjoy Claude Parent's classy voice and style!
