Leo Marjane was one of great French singers of 1930s and 1940s. Her unique "sadly grinning" deep voice and a strong dramatic expression were, two decades later, an inspiration for another great star of the French chanson - Juliette Greco. Leo Marjane's grand career had an abrupt end with the end of WWII. The French remembered, that during the occupation she entertained the Nazis with a little too much enthusiasm. After 1945 she retired.

This beautiful melancholic slow-fox was composed by Charles Trenet. The music is illustrated by the photos of one of the greatest photographers of the 20 century, Brassai (his Hungarian name was Gyula Halas).
Recording: Disque Gramophone, 1941
