"She" is a song written by Charles Aznavour and Herbert Kretzmer and released by Aznavour as a single in 1974. The song was written as a theme tune for the British TV series Seven Faces of Woman.
The song was also recorded in French, German and Italian, under the titles "Tous les visages de l'amour" (English: All the Faces of Love), "Sie" (English: She) and "Lei" (English: She), respectively.
Despite not achieving commercial success in the United States and in Aznavour's home country, France, the song peaked at number 1 on the UK Singles Chart and it was certified silver for shipments exceeding 250,000 units. The song was recorded by Aznavour in several different languages aside from English, namely French and Italian, as well as Spanish and German.

Italian singer Laura Pausini also released an Italian language cover of the song, titled "She (Uguale a lei)". The song was recorded for a Barilla TV spot. The lyrics of the song were adapted by Pausini herself, and are therefore different from the lyrics of Aznavour's Italian-language version of his hit. It was also released as a digital single on 8 March 2006, but it was not featured on any of Pausini's studio albums. However, Pausini recorded a new version of the song, included in her greatest hits album 20 - The Greatest Hits.
La musica di "SHE" è stata scritta da Charles Aznavour e il testo da Herbert Kretzmer. Esistono due versioni della canzone in italiano. La prima "LEI" è stata scritta da Giorgio Calabrese. La seconda "UGUALE A LEI" è stata scritta da Ettore Carrera. Ho qualche dubbio che esista una terza versione "SHE (UGUALE A LEI)" scritta a Laura Pausini. Questo almeno secondo la SIAE, dove non ci sono tracce sulla presenza della Pausini
