Cakes reign but a Day.
But Memory like Melody,
Is pink eternally

Zarah Leander

Here is a song performed in English by the legendary Swedish-German singer Zarah Leander.
Of Swedish origin, Zarah Leander was a huge star in German movie productions of the 1930's and 1940's. She could be seen as the anti-Garbo and also as the anti-Dietrich. After the war, she made a come-back and toured in the late 1950's and 1960's, being an object of nostalgia. With broad shoulders, large moist brown eyes, long flowing hair, and a thrillingly deep voice, she appealed to fans across every conceivable spectrum.
Listen to this nostalgic song, from her last period, and enjoy!

Each time I hear a churchbell ring

Another famous standard by the great Zarah:

And several German and Swedish songs.
