Here's one of my all time favorite love songs. I fell in love with this song for its beautiful and tender melody. The Vietnamese legendary songwriter/composer, Phạm Duy, wrote the mesmerizing Vietnamese lyrics to this song. I have written a short bio on Mr. Pham Duy in my previous upload, "Nắng Xuân [Solenzara]," performed by Phi Khanh. Please drop by that clip if you're interested; it's also a very beautiful French song, with Vietnamese lyrics written by Phạm Duy.

I have also posted the English version of this song, titled "Johnny Guitar," with a little history behind this famous song. For the English version, I am featuring the voice of one of my most favorite jazz artists, Helen Merrill.

NOTE: I discovered one source indicating that the Vietnamese lyrics to the featured song "Đàn Trong Đêm Vắng" were written by Văn Phụng [1930-1999], another one of our Vietnamese legendary songwriters. If any of you, my YouTube friends, happen to know the root cause of this confusion (I don't want to call it a controversy), please share with me. Meanwhile, enjoy this beautiful timeless love song. ~WhiteLibraTexas~

04/21/2013 - UPDATE: A credible AMP friend just recently let me know that the credits for the Vietnamese lyrics need to be given to Mr. Văn Phụng for he was actually the one who wrote the Vietnamese lyrics to this song. I will update this video clip at a later date to reflect the correct information.
