For this week's Song of the Week, Mark celebrates the 70th anniversary of one of the most beautiful of all French popular songs, performed by the great Patsy Gallant. Patsy had a monster disco hit around the world with "From New York To LA" and then an incredible eight-year run in Starmania, the blockbuster Paris musical hit. But she has always loved Ă‰dith Piaf, and Mark is thrilled to present not only her version of "La Vie en rose" but, as a bonus, another Piaf success - "Sous le ciel de Paris":
If you're wondering about Patsy's third song - a very powerful finale - check out the full show.
