This is a response to Dpawlmusic’s lovely rendition of the Cyndi Lauper song of this title. Here Lucjan O Poworocki makes one his “extraordinary renditions” of the older version of the same title, from the musicals.

It was the British Czech Chamber’s karaoke night, on 20th March in the Hard Rock Cafe in Prague. Of course it wasn’t just Czechs and Brits doing it – although these are the ones shown. The winner was in fact an American, the second place went to a Dane and yours truly got third place, but they may have been being nice to the new boy.

In this part, we can hear his medley of Piaf’s “”Vie en Rose”” with Burt Bacharach’s “”I’ll never fall in love again””, as well as the Girl from Ipanema performed with impeccable style.
