La Bohème is a song written by Jacques Plante and Armenian-French artist Charles Aznavour. The original version of this song was written by Gipo Farassino a Piemont singer who wrote the song "Porta Pila." It was first recorded by Aznavour in 1966. It is Aznavour's signature song, as well as one of the most popular French-language songs and a staple of French chanson. He also recorded Italian, Spanish, English, and German versions, as well as a rare Portuguese recording. It is performed at virtually every one of his concerts.

A re-interpretation was also done by electronic musician Nicolas Jaar, who used it in numerous of his famous live sets.

Lyrics

A painter, recalling his younger years in Montmartre, remembers his artistic life and the years when he was hungry but happy. According to Aznavour, this song is a farewell to the last days of bohemian Montmartre. He also recorded Italian, Spanish, English, and German versions, as well as a rare Portuguese recording. It is performed at virtually every one of his concerts.
