DALIDA performing one of her most famous disco hits, "J'Attendrai", in a Dutch TV show (1976).

"J'attendrai" (French for "I Will Wait"[1]) is a popular French song recorded by Rina Ketty in 1938. It is a translation of the Italian song "Tornerai" (Italian for "You Will Return") composed by Dino Olivieri (music) and Nino Rastelli (lyrics) in 1933, inspired from the Humming Chorus of Puccini's Opera "Madame Butterfly" ; the French lyrics were written by Louis Poterat.

Achieving great popularity in its day, the song has since come to be seen as emblematic of the start of World War II. 

A more recent popular version was recorded by Dalida for her 1975 album J'attendrai. The following year, she covered the song again for her disco album Coup de chapeau au passé: that version reached the Dutch charts on February 21, 1976. It spent four weeks on the charts and as # 9 in one week.
