Ooops...that first post came out messed up...it does that sometimes when cut/paste here for some reason; here is how it should be--it's a very fun sounding video--should be sure to bring a smile to people's faces:

Ljiljana Petrovic - Chewawa (ci-va-va)

video by Peda Radovic

(I think the song includes Bridgette Bardot with Ljiljana Petrovic; Ljiljana also has a fabulous video of her singing at Eurovision in 1960 or 1961)

Here's the other one--one of the best if not the best Eurovision performances of all-time:

Just submitted to ADN:

To the Editor:

Fantastic story ('Homer Chihuahua Survives Owl Abduction and Hit By Truck'; 4/16/2014). Love the photo of Aurora Greenstreet and Chihuahua "Ella"; this should be on "Good Morning America" for sure! Whenever I see people with Chihuahua's, I write down a YouTube reference for them knowing it will bring a smile when they listen. It's Ljiljana Petrovic and Bridgette Bardot from the 1960's: "Ljiljana Petrovic - Chewawa (ci-va-va)" video by Peda Radovic. Hopefully ADN readers like it too.

Sincerely,

Chris Deile

--I explained along with the letter submission that I understood it may not be published due to the YouTube reference, but that if it were by chance published and brought a smile to many people's faces it was worth the try.(Happy face icon if I knew how)

Re-submitted the letter and omitted Bridgette Bardot....it looks and sounds like Bridgette Bardot may be on Ljiljana Petrovic's "Chewawa (ci-va-va)" but not completely certain that's the case. One of the songs are titled after Bardot, but unable to ascertain if she's actually on Chewawa....

Info. under the video makes it look like Brigitte Bardot is on Chewawa, but the photo on the back of the album cover (shown during the video of Chewawa (ci-va-va) doesn't seem to include Bardot in the song.

Wow...Ultra-fabulous:

Flo Sandon's -T'ho voluto bene ( Non Dimenticar)- 1952
.
video by Massimo Menozzi

--have always loved the Carmen Villani cover, looks like it came out ten years after Flo Sandon's; just found Flo Sandon's--the photo's blow you away, and the sound is magnificent; both Flo Sandon and Carmen Villani deserve "10"'s for T'ho volute bene.

Wow-Wow! And another, Wow! Have always loved Miranda Martino's "Verde Luna" (though only found it a few months ago on YouTube--love watching her sing it), and now on taking another listen of Flo Sandon's "Verde Luna" am floored by hers too; both Flo Sandon and Miranda Martino deserve "10"'s for Verde Luna:
