Another video has the lyrics included...here they are...ran them through a language translation online but as those don't always translate so well-- Google'd Volare lyrics and found Dean Martin version in English/Italian--a little easier to understand. But what a gem to find this Dalida version in French--could listen to it all day!

Dans le bleu du ciel bleu

Dalida

Quel reve etrange je fais chaque nuit mon cheri
Par la fenetre le ciel vient flaner sur mon lit
Puis il m'habille de bleu des pieds jusqu'a la tete
Et je me mets a voler tout comme une alouette
Je vole, oh oh
Je chante oh oh oh oh
Pareil au bleu du ciel bleu
Je trouve cela merveilleux
[Lyrics from www.EasyLyrics.org ]
Et je vole, je vole, je vole
Plus loin que la mer a deux pas du soleil
Je decouvre la-haut dans les airs un bonheur sans pareil
Et du ciel une douce musique me chante a l'oreille
Je vole, oh oh
Je chante, oh oh oh oh
Pareil au bleu du ciel bleu
Je reve mon coeur est heureux
Mais quand la lune se perd au bleu de l'horizon
Les plus jolis de nos reves avec elle s'en vont
Pourtant le mien continue quand le jour se devoile
Et dans le bleu de tes yeux qui scintillent d'etoiles
Je vole, oh oh
Je chante, oh oh oh oh
Pareille au bleu de tes yeux
Je reve mon coeur est heureux
Et rien n'est plus merveilleux
Que d'etre noye(e) dans tes yeux
[Lyrics from www.EasyLyrics.org ]
Les plus jolis de nos reves avec elle s'en vont
Pourtant le mien continue quand le jour se devoile
Et dans le bleu de tes yeux qui scintillent d'etoiles
Je vole, oh oh
Je chante, oh oh oh oh
Pareille au bleu de tes yeux
Je reve mon coeur est heureux
Et rien n'est plus merveilleux
Que d'etre noye(e) dans tes yeux
Si bleu

Forgot about this one...it, along with 'Itsy Bitsy Teenie Weenie...', considered an all-time favorite; found it about two years ago:

Very funny. At beginning of Dalida 'O Sole Mio' 1961 video, it shows two mountain humps (perhaps volcanic). Later they're juxtaposed with Dalida towards the end of the video. Very subtle, just noticed after about the tenth time viewing.

Yeah...Garde moi la derniere danse is superb...has the same effect O Sole Mio did when first finding it--makes my cheeks hurt from smiling so hard...the wispy cigarette smoke...the flutes....funny. Dalida is exceptionally beautiful in it too. Love the black and white. How fortunate to find these videos. Wonder how many other people know about them. Maybe someone will be glad to come along here on this forum and find them if they weren't already aware.

I keep viewing Dalida ( Bambino ) L'original 1957 -Dalida's face is so expressive in that one. Really enjoyable.

Beginning to wonder if Dalida ( Bambino ) L'original 1957 is the best of all....I keep viewing that one most of all it seems. Her voice...facial expressions...so much about it is truly captivating.

Dalida Wiki page shows she was Miss egypt 1954 and....

"...However, the release of "Bambino" in 1956 would prove to be even more triumphant it spent 46 weeks in the French top ten and remains one of the biggest-selling singles in French history, and for its sales (which exceeded 300,000 copies) Dalida was awarded her first gold disc, presented on 17 September 1957. The song bambino echoed everywhere in France and was a success even beyond the French frontiers."....

More info on her page; tragic.

As good as Bambino is, it's hard to call one certain video the best. Dans le bleu du ciel bleu and O Sole Mio are right up there too. Just found another good Dalida video, sexy:

DALIDA Buenas noches mi amor

Can't call one the best, but would say O Sole Mio makes me smile most consistently. Funny.

This is pretty funny too...the French do those ultra-closeups, brings to mind again Francoise Hardy 'Voila' (though that vid may no longer be available).
