JE T'APPARTIENS

Latest update on 08/10/2014

Artist: Gilbert Becaud
Author: Pierre Delanoë/Gilbert Becaud
Label: La Voix de son Maitre
Year: 1955

With Orchestra led by Wal-Berg. Released as a B-side, which was Bécaud's way to hurt lyricist Delanoë for failing to attend the kick-off of his latest tour de chant. It was in fact Becaud's fury that inspired the lyrics, sounding almost like a prayer. More vividly recut by Bécaud in the '60s.
