Joe Sherman | DIANA

Diana là một ca khúc phổ thông viết bởi Joe Sherman và Paul Anka năm 1957, thu thanh lần đầu cùng năm bởi Paul Anka tại New York city. Ca khúc này được xếp hạng cao từ lúc thành hình và vẫn còn thịnh hành trong lĩnh vực trình diễn cho đến ngày hôm nay nhờ nhạc điệu, tiết tấu vui nhộn (Twist) với ca từ bình dân, giản dị.
Người chuyển ngữ ca khúc này sang tiếng Việt xin được liên tưởng đến một nhân vật thời thượng cùng tên (đã khuất), có nhiều huyền thoại vây quanh: Lady Di, Diana, Princess of Wales . . .

Với lời lẽ ca cẩm hơi vui tếu một chút:
