Justyna Steczkowska and "Johnny."

Justyna Steczkowska, a Polish singer, delivers what I think really is a good version of "Johnny." I have never seen a better version, except of course Marlene's.

Legendary, Lovely Marlene

On June 21, 1954, Marlene was introduced thus by Noel Coward before a star-studded audience at London's Café de Paris. It was her first appearance in London, and the show ran at that venue until 18 July that year. While she was in London, she also appeared at the "Night of 100 Stars" where she sang "Land Sea and Air" in duet with Noel.

Luckily for us, that "legendary, lovely" evening was recorded and issued as an album, so that we can easily relive it 53 years on. (Available at : )
