This has to be one of the best, if not the best version of Gigliola Cinquetti's "Non Ho L'Eta"; the French song after is super cute too. Her teeth! Funny! Been awhile since my cheeks hurt from smiling so hard:

I've been viewing Gigliola Cinquetti videos for five years, just found that one (Non Ho L'Eta + Les Yeux Baisses) today and have to say it is my favorite of all, no question. It just went up in July, people haven't caught onto it yet. Only 200+ views so far.

Here's another funny one...Gigliola Cinquetti and France Gall had some cute videos when they first started out:

France Gall "Ne Sois Pas Si Bete" (1964)

...still unsure what the song means, but her voice is very funny.

Here's one more I'd happened to find about five years ago--really loved it, viewed it often--but this video left out the introduction which was really enjoyable:

So few views on her "A Bientot Nous Deux" videos. Surprising. Have always loved that one. Couldn't find one with the intro. unfortunately. She was very cute, explaining her father wrote the song (I think that's right, seemed to have read so under one of the videos back then) and that she had a cold when singing the song....

A little out of synch, but have always loved this video...the gap between Gigliola Cinquetti's front teeth was more noticeable in her earlier videos--very cute:

Another funny one; found it five years ago, was writing then as "Azorka82" and included in a post the recipe for Eskimo ice cream:

I remembered being taught as a child (growing up in Anchorage) that the Eskimo ice cream was made of seal oil and berries. So did a little more searching and found the following:

The native people of Alaska have a distinct version of ice cream. It's not creamy ice cream as we know it, but a concoction made from reindeer fat or tallow, seal oil, freshly fallen snow or water, fresh berries, and sometimes ground fish. Air is whipped in by hand so that it slowly cools into foam. They call this Arctic treat akutaq (ah-goo-duck), aqutuk, ackutuk, or Eskimo ice cream. Akutaq is a Yupik word that means mix them together.

This is a delicacy that Alaska Natives have thrived on for thousands of years. This recipe was made by Natives a long, long time ago for survival and was used as a special traveling food. When hunters went out to go hunting, they brought along akutaq.

The women traditionally made Eskimo ice cream after the first catch of a polar bear or seal. The woman (grandmother or mother of the hunter) would prepare the akutaq and share it with the community members during special ceremonies.

Akutaq can also be made with moose meat and fat, caribou meat and fat, fish, seal oil, berries and other Alaskan things. Women traditionally made akutaq after the first catch of a polar bear or seal. Traditionally it was always made for funerals, potlatches, celebrations of a boy's first hunt, or almost any other celebration. It is eaten as a dessert, a meal, a snack, or a spread.

Today, Eskimo ice cream is usually made with Crisco shortening instead of tallow and with raisins and sugar sometimes added. The region of Alaska lived in usually determines what berry is used, and each family usually has their favorite recipe for Eskimo ice cream. It is said that your choice of berries used in making Eskimo ice cream is a lifetime decision. It is okay to eat any flavor made by others, but if you are caught making more than one kind, you will lose all social standing.

The people of the Arctic love to serve their favorite dish to cheechakos (newcomers in Alaska). When guests are willing to try their favorite foods, the Inuits feel pride at sharing their culture. At first, the host might be shy to offer any of their food for fear of rejection. If you are a guest and are offered some (you will probably be served first as a guest), at least try a small amount. Please do not express any "yucks" or other words of ridicule. If you really cannot bring yourself to eat this unusual food, accept the serving and find the oldest person in the room and offer the food to him or her. This will show that you have good manners, if not good taste, and that you respect your elders. Then quickly grab a plate and fill it with things that you can eat. Most people who try Eskimo ice cream say it is delicious!

This is good...when Gigliola Cinquetti sits on the couch, I recognize the guy in the middle--he has a very funny introduction of Katty Line on a video somewhere--it has since disappeared, may come back in time:

lol...Yeah, it was this song (a Nancy Sinantra song--"How Does That Grab You Darling?" Katty Line sings (in French) when he introduced her on a certain video. This video still cracks me up--it's hilarious, with almost 15,000 views now. I had the very first 25 views or so when it was first posted in 2009--couldn't stop watching it!:
