"C'est Si Bon" ("It's So Good").

OK, back to the 40's: This French pop classic was written in '47 by Betti and Homez with English lyrics by Jerry Seelen. First recorded by chanteuse Angele Durand. Joe Loss and His Orchestra released an instrumental version in '50. Danny Kaye also covered it that same year with subsequent versions by Louis Armstrong and Yves Montand. Popularized by Eartha Kitt (#11) and by Johnny Desmond (#25) in '54. Conway Twitty did a Country version in '60. Song? English title?

Yesterday's answer: "Kramer vs. Kramer" definitely put Vivaldi's "Concerto for Mandolin, Strings and Basso Continuo" RV 425 back on the map. He also wrote the more lugubrious "Concerto for TWO Mandolins, Strings and Organ" RV532.
