Ornella Vanoni ends her career with this amazing performance at 79 y.o.; numerous b/w videos of her singing this song decades ago are fantastic; here she ends and pulls her dress down from her shoulders; lol; still has it at 79...:

A person could search YouTube for years and never find a video as good as this CLASSIC:

Maybe not....

The Milano 6.11.2014 video stated it was Ornella vanoni's final performance; however, this one comes up now:

video by itatini

(you can see at the end of the 6.11.2014 video that ornella Vanoni indicates to the audience that she is finished, that's the last time, giving reason the video would have stated it was her final performance)

Found this one a few years ago..this video is super cool...

Ornella Vanoni Una Ragione Di Pui (live 2009)

video by itatini

--Ornella Vanoni must have been around 73 y.o. in that one; the audience just goes ballistic at the end--they loved it!

Ornella Vanoni "Un'Ora Solo Ti Vorrei"

video by sama amalphis

Obscure find...magnificent...so very simple, brought to mind the simplicity of Katty Line's 'V'ent Anni':

Title translates online:

A heart never forgets

--almost got that one without the online translation--those words occur often in the French songs, have just about learned them.

Yeah, that's fantastic--the Sophie darel un coeur n'oublie jamais video--and perhaps not so obscure either...looks like Sopihie darel placed fourth at Eurovision with "Printemps de Paris"; unable to find that on Youtube, however.

But love her un couer n'oublie jamais video--a really, really good one.

Sophie Darel's (French) Wiki page is quite brief unfortunately. Explains she was married, but not much info on her career.

This is a really good one:

Sophie Darel "Mon copain de Pekin"

video by Ina Chansons

Sophie Darel brings to mind Petula Clark...
