What’s That Song? “La Vie En Rose / Al di La” in The Irishman
Thereâs been a lot of buzz around Martin Scorseseâs new Netflix film, The Irishman, but most of it thus far has been about the actors participating in the film, which is not in any way unreasonable. That said, itâs time to contemplate some of the songs in the film, and since Scorsese has a longstanding reputation for amazing utilization of music in his motion pictures, you wonât be surprised to discover that the soundtrack is top-notch.
For our part here at Rhino.com, weâre going to be spotlighting a certain song by Edith Piaf, one which â in case youâve forgotten â also gets a moment to shine in Bradley Cooper and Lady Gagaâs take on A Star is Born, with Gaga giving Piaf a run for her money with her performance. Yes, we know that Piaf purists will be horrified by that suggestion, but if itâs enough to emotionally wreck Bradley Cooper, well, weâre sorry for your horror, but we still stand by our statement.
That said, we wouldnât begin to pretend that Piafâs version is anything less than iconic:
Although The Irishman is a Netflix film, itâs not actually on Netflix yet, oddly enough, but it is in theaters. So if you catch a screening soon, then youâll know this beautiful tune already, and if you arenât able to catch it until itâs streaming... Well, youâll be prepared, too!
