C'est la vie - Charlene Tilton

At some point in the Eighties, the actors of the legendary TV series 'Dallas' decided they could sing as well as act. Patrick Duffy recorded a rather dodgy duet with Mireille Mathieu, whereas Audrey Landers launched a singing career, working with German producers.

And then there's Charlene Tilton (who played Lucy in the series), who also worked with a German producer, Heidi Brühl, to release 'C'est la vie' in 1984. The single reportedly reached number 1 in Germany. Unpretentious pop. No more, no less.

My collection: 7" single no. 4288
Found: Record fair, Utrecht, November 21, 2009
Cost: 1 euro
Tracks: 'C'est la vie' / 'C'est la vie (instrumental)'

  2. Ok, we germans got no taste, but anyway: Charlene Tiltons song "C'est La Vie" was never, n e v e r, a number one in the german single/album charts!
