Blossoms will run away -
Cakes reign but a Day.
But Memory like Melody,
Is pink eternally

Nicole Croisille

Here is a famous song (Nous, les amoureux - "We, lovers"), performed by one of the great ladies of French song, Nicole Croisille.
Nicole Croisille was born in 1936 in Neuilly-sur-Seine, near Paris. A dancer and a singer, she began working at the end of the 1950's with Marcel Marceau and Joséphine Baker. She sang in Saint-Germain-des-Prés, in Paris and in New York. She had her first hit with a Ray Charles song, "Halleluya, I love her so". In 1964, she led the revue of the Folies Bergère in the United States. But it is Francis Lai who gave her the occasion of being famous in the whole world with the song from the film "Un homme et une femme" ("A man and a woman"). In 1968, under the name "Tuesday Jackson", she performed the song from the Marcel Carné film "Les jeunes loups", "I'll never leave you". She has been in show business for nearly 50 years. Gifted with a beautiful voice, and a great vocal range, she can belt out a song or whisper with much emotion to your ear. She has a unique and very original tone quality, recalling at time Lana Cantrell (who, by the way, sang some of Nicole's songs). She used to perform in her early years in the USA, and has been heard since on many great international stages.
Enjoy Nicole's great voice and style!

Here is another example of Croisille's style, when she was known as "Tuesday Jackson":
I’ll never leave you

And here are 6 other great songs:

Dieu merci, il m’aime aussi

Quand nous n’aurons que la tendresse

Le garçon que j’aimais

Tu m’avais dit

Je t’aime, un point c’est tout

Le cœur égratigné (score from the movie "Le chat et la souris", 1975, with Michèle Morgan)
