hold me dancin'
if you are not already following margo on facebook - you need to. she is great - posting wonderful photos (like the one above), sharing stories and talking to her fans. and what song to post? too many great ones to choose from, so i'll go with this fave of mine. i don't think she's ever put a foot wrong - all her songs are marvy- you don't have them all? - well, there's only 2 albums for you to buy-
so put it on your wish list and ask santa this year!
les langues de chat - the video!
thanks for darby for telling me about this - it is absolutely wonderful
a pre-plastic cher covered a sandie shaw classic. i think she did a pretty good job too.

this film is going to kill me, i just know it! the music is heartbreaking - glad to hear they've used the same song too (originally by les poppies)
italo disco doll
who knew this clip existed? not me! such a classic italo disco track, but i just thought elena ferretti was just the voice behind rose - but here she is as the body too - well, i'm presuming it's her - it's a body at least! (in the days when a black leotard was considered a good enough stage costume!)

no speako da lingo
sometimes when a french singer sings one of their songs in english it just adds another level of charm to an already amazing song. and sometimes its just a clunky old mess. this english version of 'je changerais d'avis' falls in to the clunky category. also, hearing the lyrics in english sets feminism back quite a few years. not the best - but i know you'll be interested in hearing it.

and here it is...!
i was starting to think i'd never hear this song until fane pointed me in the right direction, then massive thanks to aaron and justus for make it possible for me to share this super rare track with you.
you will not be disappointed! (google translates the title as old sausages(!?) - can anyone suggest what the title actually means?)
