Norbert Glanzberg and Henri Contet composed and wrote this realistic song about the life of Édith Piaf to the tune of swirling chord of a valse. It's sad, moving, painful, happy, joyful, and passionate, revolving around the theme of her haunting emotional and sentimental memories of her past lovers and love stories. These memories are filled with disappointment, especially about her great love Marcel Cerdan who tragically disappeared at the age of 33 on a flight from Paris to New York to join her in New York, where she was triumphant in 1949. These romantic memories make her heart beat "padam, padam, padam”

Lyrics to Share

Il dit: Rappelle-toi tes amours

Rappelle-toi puisque c'est ton tour

'Y a pas d'raison pour qu'tu n'pleures pas

Avec tes souvenirs sur les bras...
