Autumn Leaves became famous because of Yves Montand’s interpretation which is available here at jazzinotes. Les Feuilles mortes is the famous song of his second movie Les Portes de la nuit (Gates of the Night), composed by Joseph Kosma, lyrics written by Jacques Prévert, both friends of Edith Piaf. Years later this movie became well-known in the USA, where Johnny Mercer wrote the English lyrics: Autumn Leaves, which helped the song to become well-known all over the world. Edith Piaf herself integrated this song in her repertoire - with French and English lyrics. You can find this version here at jazzinotes.
The song was recorded on Barbara Streisand's album Je m'appelle Barbra in 1966 (Barbara Streisand was 24 years old). Only in 2002, 28 years later, the album entered the US charts and rised till No 5. There are several songs on this album where Barbara Streisand sings in french. In Autumn Leaves she begins in french and turns to english. Barbara Streisand won - besides some Grammies - an Oscar as best main actor in Funny Girl 1969.
