My mother used to listen to Dalida a lot, I used to listen with her with my mother, when Dalida died it was a great shock to me, she was like a member of my family, now after all these years I still listen to her and remember her and me when I was young listening to her, this is the law of the life, you can't keep someone you love forever. Thank you orlando for keeping her memory alive

Camping in Quimper (Brittany) in one of those long, hot summers in the late 1970s. I think I must have been fifteen - I was as fragile as a dream, strong as a man. The catchy song on the radio - what could it be? Who could it be? It was my first visit to France and I strained to hear the DJ as he gave the name - something about "Monday, Tuesday". I ran to the local record shop and somehow managed to gesture which one I wanted. How could I wait to get back to England to play it? Never mind, it was on the radio all that endless summer. Thus began a lifelong love affair with France and most importantly with that singer, the Divine Dalida. "Let me dance tonight, dance tonight, so that I can feel that she's still by my side, by my side..."

have loved Dalida even since I was a young boy but as I got older my love for her became almost an obsession. It is still with such a great pleasure that I listen to her many songs in so many different languages even though it does make me sad to think that she is not with us any longer and that I never had the chance to see her live. Long live Dalida in our hearts for ever.

I first heard Dalida during a French listening exercise. I was instantly taken by her beautiful voice. When I looked into her more I discovered what a huge influence she was and just how wonderful she truely was. I went to France that year and bought two albums and a DVD of her. To me she is one of the greatest performers of all time and will always be sadly missed.

Je suis né à Paris et j'ai grandi dans le 8e. J'habitai tout près de la station de radio Europe1. Un jour j'ai appris que Dalida venait faire un enregistrement. C'était le printemps, mon école était près de ma maison et le midi je rentrais déjeuner chez moi. Ce jour-là, je ne suis pas rentré manger mais je suis reste à attendre Dalida près de la station rue Francois 1er... Après 1h d'attente Dalida est sortie, il n'y avait curieusement pas de monde juste 2 photographes et moi attendant timidement ... Soudain son regard a croisé le mien, je tremblais de peur mais elle sait avance de moi et m'a demandé mon prénom. Je n'avais jamais vu une femme aussi belle, pour moi elle était une déesse. Je lui ai demandé si je pouvais avoir un autographe. Elle m'a répondu "bien sur, as-tu une feuille?" moi: non, juste mon cahier d'École alors voilà ... Elle me répond "mais, tu risques de te faire gronder par ta maîtresse! Moi; ce n'est pas grave ! Dalí:"tu sais il faut que tu sois sage et travail bien à l'école ensuite tu auras le temps de rêver, mais avant sois un bon élève s'est important. Elle m'a ensuite tenue la main puis embrasse sur la joue...et puis elle est montée dans une voiture... Je n'arrivais plus à contenir ma joie, j'étais heureux et son image depuis est restée dans ma mémoire à jamais... Je vous assure que depuis ce moment magique et après son décès j'ai toujours eu l'impression que son esprit résonnait dans le mien... J'espère qu'elle repose en paix et que son âme restera à jamais une lumière sur cette terre.

I am big fab Of Timi Yuro But now i'm big of the both of them (Dalida & Yuro) I frst heard Dalida round about 1999 in a gay hotel i was staying at in Amsterdam. The barman was playing the cd L'AN 2005 and the song Femme (Smile) came on and knowing Yuro did the song in 1962 it sounded fab. I tryed to the cd in Amsterdam but could not so the barman but it on tape for me to take back to Leeds UK. Thats was thats for 2 or 3 years just this tape untill friends went to Paris for weekend and came back with the cd for me. They started telling me all about the cd's they had seen and videos. Then i started looking for stuff on Ebay and my god now have 100 45's single and EP's and still going up 20 cd's 1 DVD box set and 4 10inch Lp's Soon i'm off Paris to where she lived. It's just ashame she did not come to uk or was on the Uk TV or did she ????? Not many peole know of her here in the uk, and record shop like HMV have never heard of her unless u shop in the BIG HMV shop in london. How when i'm in Europe i look for her stuff at 2rd hand markets etc, but trying to fine stuff she did in english it's like trying find gold.I have told lots of friends all about her My tops 5 songs are Pepe, J'attendrai,Gigi L'amoroso (i do have this song in english too)Amore scusami, Italian Restaurant

I suppose being a Petula Clark fan, I'd heard the name Dalida a few times; especially as she's expressed such an admiration for her. So, I decided to find out who this woman was. It was earlier this year...in Paris that I came across the cd 'The Queen' and the DVD 'Passionnement'. I decided to buy them...give it a go. I'm not quite sure what happened the moment I heard her voice. One of the most incredible voices I have ever heard. I was hooked and now I have the great adventure at finding different songs, learning about her life. It hasn't been the easiest couple of months, but her music has kinda been there and I'm so incredibly glad that we 'met'. Rather late.

Thierry Granus (37 years)

In 1979, at the age of 14, I bought my first Dalida vinyl record 45 EP in Reunion Island where I lived with my parents. I will soon be 37 and am still a fan of the Great Lady. The lyrics of her songs often reflect moments of my adult life... She will always stay my Idol amid my favourite popular singers. For me she is : The voice, look, beauty, emotion, regrets, tears, heartache, grief, joy, true love, true life, reality, irreplaceable, unforgettable, eternity...

Salvatore Boemi (45 years)

Steve (30 years)

I have just fallen under the spell of this remarkable woman. I was recently in Paris and went and paid my respects to Dalida at her resting place and I thanked her for being so unique and special. Her voice simply touches me. The way she sings 'Je Suis Malade' makes my heart ache. I've also just bought the DVD of her various TV performances and I am so sad that I will never witness one of them for myself. What a star this woman is and one that will shine forever.

Mike

Me and my brother live in the uk and are big Dalida fans. She is truly unique. Too bad we will never be able to see her perform live. Our favourite song is Gigi Paradiso.

Denis Lownds (65 years)

I was only introduced to Dalida this year by a CD from a friend in the USA, what does she mean to me, the moment I played the CD I was captured by her voice, I don't know French, but it is not important, because Dalida like Edith Piaf sings from the heart, and you feel all the emotions of life, love, sorrows, wonderful Dalida, if only she were alive now, and then she would see how loved she is.

Jones Andrew (38 years) London

came accross Dalida about 2 years ago after being introduced by a French friend and I fell in love immediately. Something about her life, her beauty, talent and her tragedy touched my soul and continues to do so to this day. Such a terrible shame but a wonderful legacy
