Yes, Yes, Oui Oui
:: Maid In Paris, Le Zip File ::
Ooh, this is the sort of article where I get to use the word "chanteuse." Actually, this is going to be very brief, but long on music. So you sickos who just read the posts and don't listen to the tunes won't have much to chew on here. So yeah, Francoise was a very cute French chick who sang sort of normal pop fare, and she still performs to this day. This album, which I can't find a date for, but must be from the end of the sixties or the beginning of the seventies, contains one side of songs in English, and one in French. I can't decide what's foxier, her little accent when she sings the songs in English or her custard-smooth coo in her native language. Some of these songs have appeared on CD compilations, some evidently have not. It's an interesting mix of stuff, and the very last track even has some psych-fuzz guitars. Bon appetit.
P.S. If you dig this sort of thing, you should regularly check out Blow Up Doll, a fine place indeed.
