Trecho extraído da Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/L%27Amour_Est_Bleu
"L'amour est bleu" (English translation: "Love Is Blue") is a song written by André Popp (music) and Pierre Cour (lyrics) in 1967. First performed in French by Vicky Leandros (appearing as Vicky) as the Luxembourgish entry in the Eurovision Song Contest 1967, it has since been recorded by many other musicians. The song describes the pleasure and pain of love in terms of colours (blue and grey) and elements (water and wind)."

“André Charles Jean Popp (born 19 February 1924) is a French composer, arranger and screenwriter. Born in Fontenay-le-Comte, he started his career as a church organist, filling the place of his father who had been called up to serve in World War II in 1939. Popp studied music at the Saint Joseph Institute. In the 1960s, he co-wrote (with Pierre Cour) two songs for the Eurovision Song Contest — Tom Pillibi, which won the competition for France in 1960, and L'Amour Est Bleu (Love is Blue) which came fourth for Luxembourg in 1967, but which later became a Number one hit in the US for Paul Mauriat. During this time he was the arranger for many top French singers such as Juliette Greco. He worked for many years for French radio.”
