La Vie En Rose (film)

"La vie en rose" (French for "Life in Pink") was the signature song of French singer, Édith Piaf.

Piaf first popularized the song in 1946. The lyrics were written by Piaf and the melody of the song by "Louiguy" (Louis Gugliemi). Initially, Piaf's peers and her songwriting team did not think the song would be successful, but it became a favorite with audiences. An English version of the lyrics was written later by Mack David. Owing to its popularity, the song appeared on most of Piaf's subsequent albums. A 1998 documentary about Edith Piaf was called La Vie en Rose, as was the 2007 biographical feature film La Vie En Rose.
