"Les Mômes de la cloche" is a song which became the first studio recording made by Édith Piaf.[2] It was written by Vincent Scotto (music) and André Decaye (lyrics).[1][3]

History[edit]

Édith Piaf recorded the song "Les Mômes de la cloche" on 18 December 1935 at Polydor's Studio 2.[1] The song was released as her first commercial record (a 78 RPM single) in 1936.[1][4] The other side of the record was "L'étranger". (Actually, Piaf re-recorded both songs later, "L'étranger" on 13 January 1936 and "Les Mômes de la cloche" on 24 March 1936, and some pressings of the single used the new versions.)[1]

The 78 RPM record with the song became a big success.[5]
