Bryan Blackburn later wrote English-language lyrics for it. First performed in French by Greek singer Vicky Leandros (appearing as Vicky) as the Luxembourgish entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1967, it has since been recorded by many other musicians, most notably French orchestra leader Paul Mauriat, whose familiar instrumental version (recorded in late 1967) became the first number-one hit by a French lead artist to top the Billboard Hot 100 in America. Despite not winning the Eurovision, Leandros recorded the song in many different languages for release in 19 countries. The song achieved greater success through cover versions of the song by other artists like crooners Andy Williams and Al Martino.
