The Manhattan Transfer "Chanson D'Amour" 1976 [Enhanced Stereo] Scott Rogers
A personal favorite by The Manhattan Transter, "Chanson D'Amour" was written by Wayne Shanklin and originally recorded by Art and Dotty Todd in 1953. The Manhattan Transfer's cover was a European record breaking charting hit. Starting out on the charts in France at the start of 1977 to peak there at #8, the track subsequently became a hit in Germany (#20), the Netherlands (#6), Norway (#1 for two weeks) and Switzerland (#6). In the English speaking world, the song became a chart-topping hit in the British Isles reaching #1 in both the UK, and Ireland in 1977, with hit status also evident in Australia (#9), New Zealand (#14) and South Africa (#14). "Chanson D'Amour" would prove to be the Manhattan Transfer's most widespread international success, despite being largely overlooked in the group's native United States, where the track registered only on the Easy Listening chart at #16. The stunning actress in the video is Marlene Dietrich dancing in the 1944 film Kismet. (edited and mirrored)
