Gigi (song)

"Gigi" is the title song from the 1958 Academy Award-winning film, directed by Vincente Minnelli. It was written by Frederick Loewe and Alan Jay Lerner, sung by Louis Jourdan in the film.[1][2] It then went on to win the Academy Award for Best Original Song in 1958.[1][3]

A cover version by Billy Eckstine peaked at #8 in the UK Singles Chart in 1959.[1] Sergio Franchi recorded the song in England with Wally Stott on his 1964 RCA Victor Red Seal album Women in My Life.[4]
