In 1945, as World War II came to to an end in Europe, French singer Edith Piaf wrote the lyrics to her signature song La Vie En Rose, she introduced the song in 1946, and first recorded it in 1947. The melody was composed by Louis Guglielmi and Marguerite Monnet, and the song's title means "life is pink" - meaning something to the effect of "looking through rose-colored glasses." Piaf recorded La Vie En Rose in French and in English, and it was the song that brought her international recognition. In the 1950's, covers of this song earned Grammys for seven artists, including Bing Crosby, Dean Martin and Louis Armstrong. In 1977, Jamaican model and singer Grace Jones recorded a bossa nova version of this song on her debut album Portfolio - it was the song that brought her international recognition as well. In 1988 La Vie En Rose appropriately won a Grammy Hall of Fame award.
