1964 (This clip is a tribute to the wonderful Edith Piaf. Shirley delivers a powerful cover of one of Edith Piaf's big hits, 'No Regrets' at her 1964 Carnegie Hall Concert. Shirley sings the English lyrics)
This song was recorded during Shirley Bassey's 1964 concert performance at Carnegie Hall. Although the technical equipment of the 1964 was not sophisticated as it is today, the mastery of Shirley's powerful vocals which were captured here on record are nothing short of breath taking!
ABOUT this song: This song, 'No Regrets' was originally written as a French song titled, "Non, Je Ne regrette rien", translatted as, 'No, I Regret Nothing." French singer, Edit Piaf, who passed at the relatively young age of 47, was in poor physical and mental health during the late 50's. According to a recent film screen adaptation on her life, it was this song that she loved so much that it brought her back out of semi-retirement. She recorded the song in 1960. Edit Piaf is highly regarded as France's greatest POP ICON/Singer/Entertainer of all time! Most of the pictures in this clip are of the great Edith Piaf.
LYRICS: No, no regrets No, we will have no regrets As you leave, I can say Love was king, but for only a day
No, no regrets No, let there be no regrets Why explain? Why delay? Don't go away, simply call it a day
Pleading moments we knew I will set them apart Every word, every sign Will be burned in my heart
But no tears will be shed There'll be no one to blame Let it always be said We attempted what came
No, no regrets No, we will have no regrets As you leave, I can say Love was king, but for only a day
Life still goes on Yes, even though love has gone One last kiss Shrug and sign
