 Many thanks for that, LS
I have removed the video from my earlier post in the light of your advice

 "Venice Blue" is "Que c'est triste Venise", a French song.
"Les gitans" was a hit for Dalida in the fifties.

The YT video is a different song, "Les deux guitares", by Aznavour, based on gypsy folklore.

 Are either of these tracks a version of her Zigeuners song ("Play Gypsies, Play") as in the YouTube video, which credits Aznavour for the original?

I will always have a soft spot for Corry, whose name I knew long before I heard her sing, as Radio Veronica in the early 60s had the fashionable Brokken speaking in a clothing advert, introduced by a presenter with the words I remember - "Even uw aandacht voor een modieuse vrouw"
- but does anyone remember what she replied? Something about 'more or less' as I recall

 A side label has sticker with what may be release date 3 Dec 1965.
Can't find much on interwebs about this, her first UK 45 listed here.
