In 2006, Aznavour recorded his album Colore ma vie in Cuba, with Chucho Valdés. A regular guest vocalist on Star Academy, Aznavour sang alongside contestant Cyril Cinélu that same year. In August 2011 Aznavour released a new album, Aznavour Toujours, featuring 11 new songs, and Elle, a French re-working of his greatest international hit, "She".

In the wake of the canny album His Love Songs in English (1965), Aznavour’s English-speaking following snowballed. Among them was Bob Dylan, who saw him at New York’s Carnegie Hall and said: He just blew my brains out. Among the highlights of the show was La Bohème, a salaam to the Parisian neighbourhood Montmartre – and an Aznavour signature tune. At one of his final British performances, he enhanced it with the use of just one prop, a white rag, which was tossed into the crowd. 3. Non, Je N’Ai Rien Oublié (No, I Could Never Forget)

Sur Ma Vie - His Greatest Hits. Exclusive discount for Prime members. Sample this album Artist (Sample). This album took me back to my youth in the late 60s. I had forgotten how much I loved this music and how it made me feel. Of course I do understand the lyrics much better now that I have a lifetime of experience behind me.

Legendary performer Charles Aznavour’s music has come to define the genre of French chanson. FRANCE 24 takes a look back at some of his greatest creations, from his first success with Sur ma vie (On my life) to his smash hit La Bohème. Aznavour was propelled to fame with his 1955 song Sur ma vie, which would become his first No. 1 hit in France. After a string of successes, Aznavour sought to appeal to audiences beyond France in 1963 with For m. ormidable, a medley in French and English. That same year, he performed at Carnegie Hall in New York, a show American singer-songwriter Bob Dylan later said blew my brains out. In 1965, Aznavour released what would become arguably one of the most memorable songs of his career, La Bohème. He followed up two years later with the wistful, Emmenez-moi (Take me along).

Since his career began in 1933 Charles Aznavour has sold over 100 million record sales, 1,200 songs, 80 movies, 294 albums, thousands of concerts around the world. 2014 Greatest Hits sung in English from the French icon, who has been releasing music since 1933. Features performances from Elton John, Frank Sinatra, Liza Minnelli, Sting, Josh Groban, Celine Dion and others. Includes classics like 'She', 'Yesterday When I Was Young', 'You've Let Yourself Go' and more.
