Song Lyric Sunday: 11th April: ‘She’

Jim’s challenge this week:
This week the single word song title prompt, and the song that you choose must contain only one word in the title.


I’ve gone with this as it has a bitter sweet memory for me regarding the first fiance in 1974.
It is one of the most beautiful ballads I have heard, but nothing to do with my relationship at the time.  He put it on autoplay on the pub jukebox, then realised from the opening introduction it was not The Queen Of Clubs by K.C. and the Sunshine Band.
I was happy though!

She” is a song written by Charles Aznavour and Herbert Kretzmer and released by Aznavour as a single in 1974. The song was written in English as a theme tune for the British TV series Seven Faces of Woman.

Aznavour also recorded it in French, German, Italian and Spanish, under the respective titles “Tous les visages de l’amour” (English: All the Faces of Love), “Sie” (English: She) “Lei” (English: She) and “Es” (English: [She] is), respectively. He also recorded the song in a more uptempo French version with different lyrics, simply titled “Elle” (English: She).

The song peaked at number 1 on the UK Singles Chart and stayed there for four weeks; it was certified silver for shipments exceeding 250,000 units. It also reached number 1 in the Irish Charts, spending one week at the top. It was less popular outside the UK (where Seven Faces of Woman did not air); in France, the song narrowly missed the top 40, and in the United States, it failed to chart on the Billboard Hot 100 and charted on the lower end of the easy listening charts.

Elvis Costello recorded a cover version of the song in 1999. This version, produced by Trevor Jones, was featured over the final sequence of the film Notting Hill, and charted throughout Europe.

Sit back and enjoy.

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

  1. Beautiful! Great choice Di! I love it when the music brings memories with it…

    • I can still see his face as he’d put in about £2 (10p a go!) for his ‘favourite’ that turned out not to be. I dumped him shortly afterwards when I found out about his drinking problem.

  2. Is the Grace Kelly & Cary Grant video from To Catch A Thief? I never heard this before but it is a lovely song. I just listened to a nice cover by Arpi Alto.

  3. I remember this one! Fantastic choice Di ☺️💕
