. . . and when that nurse comes in to my room saying, "It's time for your medication", it's Mantovani's inimitable "La Mer" (not Debussy's, and certainly not Glazunov's!) that I want to have playing in the background. . .

There's a Chocolate ad that has Piaf or an imitator.
There was a woman locally that did a Piaf Show, there was even a Ballet that used her singing with the Ballet Orch.
Just can't tolerate that nasal Piaf sound....
I agree about the nasal sound but she, along with a few others, are so bound up with the essential character of a particular song or two that anyone else is just an unsuccessful imitator. La Mer and Je ne regrette rien are examples.
Bob Dylan, anyone?
I'm sure you're right, but at least I can understand ( some of ) Dylan...
Maybe if I understood French I would appreciate Piaf more.
