The Night They Invented Champagne

Songfacts®:

  • This is a feel-good song from the award winning 1958 American musical Gigi; the music was composed by Frederick Loewe and the lyrics were written by Alan Jay Lerner; Lerner also wrote the screenplay. In the film, the song is sung by lead actress Leslie Caron and two others.

    In spite of its title, "The Night They Invented Champagne" doesn't actually say anything about the origin of the wine, unlike the Al Stewart track "Toutes Les Etoiles." >>
