Today's Happy Hour Soundtrack, With Images of Marilyn Monroe At No Extra Charge

Eartha Kitt, singin' about how good it is:


Je cherche un millionnaire
Avec des grands "Cadillac car"
"Mink coats" - Des bijoux
Jusqu'au cou, tu sais?
(Full lyrics here, including an English translation for those of you in need.)
Heh.  Well, I have ONE of the prerequisites...

Wasn't Marilyn just THE most beautiful woman?

  1. The first time I ever heard, or saw, C'est Si Bon performed it was by Miss Kitt.
    It was about 1953 and someone had made a marionette caricature of her to perform to the music.

    And, yeah, Marilyn gives me goose bumps ...among other things.

    1. "C'est Si Bon" is one of those songs I heard at Mom's knee. Funny how those things stay with ya for years and years and years. And, yeah... Marilyn does it for me, too.

    ...bijoux pour le cou, tu sais :-)

    On another note, this video has me ordering a ticket to Paris to go see them bare naked and take a lot of pictures:
