Sally Kellerman sings “La Vie en Rose” in a duet with Bertie Higgins. The song was originally sung by Edith Piaf; Leiber & Stoller wrote their “L’Homme à la Moto” for Piaf.
The great Sally Kellerman joins us for our 80th Birthday Celebration of Songwriter Mike Stoller hosted by Paul Shaffer. Mike Stoller and lyricist Jerry Leiber bridged the gap between R&B and rock ‘n’ roll through songs like “Hound Dog,” “There Goes My Baby” and “Stand By Me.” We asked Sally a few questions to get ready for the big night.
