Some of last night's listening pleasure: the great French singer, Barbara, singing one of her greatest hits, "Ma plus belle histoire d'amour, c'est vous." ("My most beautiful love story is you." She could be singing this to the love of her life, or to her audience; the language allows for both. She dedicated the song to her fans.) Bear with the Sixties make-up, her song is magnificent.
She was a composer-writer too, not just a singer. Born 1930, died 1997.
More Barbara coming; I'm on a roll.
