Keeping it Latin, one of the lesser-known yé-yé girls of the '60s (although she is listed as the 4th best-selling, with about 10 million records at infodisc.fr), whose real name is Chantal de Guerre, with a later hit.

This is the French version of Theme for a Dream (written by American Earl Shuman and Canadian Morton Garson) by Cliff Richard (Harry Webb) from the same year. Rivers' real name was Hervé Forneri. He was a big fan of Elvis and adapted the name from the character Elvis played in Loving You, Deke Rivers. He was one of several in the great yé-yé period who took English names, the 2 other famous 'Elviciens' being Belgian-born Johnny Hallyday (Jean-Philippe Smet, whose wife, Bulgarian-born yé-yé singer Sylvie Vartan, is the aunt of American actor Michael Vartan) and Eddy Mitchell (Claude Moine).

A Super '60s icon and one of the best known yé-yé girls. She was born Sylvie Vartan in Bulgaria, Aug. 15, 1944 to a French-born father of Armenian descent, Georges, and a Judeo-Hungarian mother, Ilona. She was nicknamed 'la collégienne du twist' by journalists  and 'la Blonde' by her fans.

Just as lovely as France Gall (short a as in the English 'gal'), but unlike Gall, she liked show biz and appreciated her yé-yé period, spoke 6 languages instead of 2, sang in 10 languages instead of 6, did rock n roll, did many English songs (as opposed to none), appeared on American TV (The Tonight Show, Shindig, and Hullabaloo), recorded an album in the States, sold more records (30 or 40 mln. as opposed to 20 mln.), had many books about her (20 instead of 3), wrote an autobio, signed autographs, did cinema, and was sexier, and she may have recorded and sold more records.

She did 1200 songs, 63 albums, had 5 double gold singles and 10 gold albums, was on the cover of 1500 magazines,  was the subject of 16,000 magazine articles, and did 2500 concerts.  She played the renowned Olympia in Paris for 3 weeks in Jan.-Feb., '64 with the Beatles and Trini Lopez, just before the Beatles went on to NY for their landmark Ed Sullivan appearance.

Shiela (Annie Chancel), born August 16, '45, in Val-de-Marne, her stage name chosen by her producer from Tommy Rowe's song, which she did a version of, was the most popular French female singe, selling 10 or 85 mln. records world wide, depending on the source. Although this figure may be exaggerated, it doesn't change her ranking--she sold 30 mln. records in France, also the most for French female singers. Vartan is no. 2, Gall 3rd, Michelle Torr 4th, and Françoise Hardy 5th, although Chantal Goya may be 4th in terms of sales in France. Figures for Piaf, Bardot, and Greco are apparently unknown, but presumably Piaf would be no. 2, and BB and Greco would be somewhere in the Top 10.

Many non-Anglophone singers get into the highly lucrative, Anglophone, especially American, market. Shiela's disco version of Singing in the Rain sold 5 mln. copies in the US alone. She was the 1st French female singer to do disco. Promotion is a big factor, but sometimes a hidden factor behind that promotion is organized crime, but not necessarily the Mafia. Sheila married '70s French singer Ringo Wily Cat (Guy Bayle) on Feb. 13, 1973 (sixty thirteen in French), in the 13th arrondissement, at 13:13 hours. France Gall is seen doing the Masonic OK hand sign in one video, and there are pictures of Celine Dion, the all-time, best-selling female Francophone singer world-wide, doing the cornuta.

I was listening to this video before I saw the previous entry,
so it's coincidence.

 I love your taste in music. I learn so much from the history info you add. Living here in the states I was never got to hear this music.
Maybe one day you might share just how in the world someone of your age got into this style of music.
  Please keep posting...

You might be assuming that I'm young. Actually, I'm a baby boomer. I should have included my year of birth in my profile. I corrected that.

Really great stuff by Elise Trouw. She's beautiful and a real revelation.

Sad lyric but great melody and arrangement, with special effects predating Vinny Bell's fabulous splash guitar. It was written by Robert Sears and produced by Bob Crewe, who co-wrote a whole slew of great songs, mostly  for the fabulous 4 Seasons, who he produced for also, and had a disco group in the '70s called the Bob Crewe Generation. Ginny Arnell (Virginia Mazzaro) hails from New Haven. She had teamed up with Gene Pitney in '59 as Jamie and Jane. This was her 1st single for MGM.
