LA MÔME PIAF EST NUMÉRO UN

The littlest rebel tops my album chart for the third year running – Columbia were making the most of the market appetite for their new microgroove LPs, and there was a great deal of material from the late 40s from which to compile song selections from the popular Miss Piaf.

Her stock was high at this time – but that will have been little consolation to her, as she had just been dealt a major personal blow from which she found it very hard to recover. The love of her life, the married boxer Marcel Cerdan, died in a plane crash in October 1949, while flying from Paris to New York City to meet her. Cerdan's Air France flight crashed in the Azores, killing everyone on board, including noted violinist Ginette Neveu. Piaf and Cerdan's affair made international headlines, as Cerdan was the former middleweight world champion and a legend in France in his own right.

Things would never be quite the same again for Édith…
