Such an easy one this week - I cheat a little 'cos this doesn't strictly start with "V", but it's such a beautiful song and one of my top 10 I had to slip it into this round of ABC Wednesday.
So here it is (La) Vie En Rose.
Was Edith Piaf's signature song and it was also written by her.
It was released in 1947 by Columbia records.
The English lyrics were written by Mack David.
Here is the English version sung by Edith Piaf

But the French version is even better. I love the way Celine Dion sings it and she's one of my favourite singers so here is her version.

Wish you all a rosy life ... la vie en rose
