Maybe this will meet with more universal approval. I ran across this clip last summer around the time I saw the Piaf, bio-flic. More than anything on record, I thought this clip captured how great Piaf’s voice was. Listen to the way her voice rises up out of the male chorus and soars above it, and the intense vibrato she uses.
Also, you know Marion Cotillard saw this clip – she picked up that stiff-kneed arthritic walk, and her sly pleasure about being surrounded by all those young men.
