mon cher



let's be honest: cher in mamma mia is awful- facial features all erased, wooden movements, bland version of a classic song. that said, i still really enjoyed her in it!

let's remember when her face actually worked with my fave cher song.
(check out dalidas equally great version too)

kiss me hardy

i don't understand why i never posted this before.
i played it on repeat last year. 
sounds like an unreleased song from alizee's 'une enfant du siecle' (which i adore) 
but it is in fact a cover of an 80s francoise hardy song

adieu


FAREWELL TO A LEGEND.
i feel genuinely sad about her passing. she left us with so many fantastic songs, especially form the 60's and 70's. without her there would be no blowupdoll

music of the year 2017

hi!

i know i post sporadically and i have no idea if anyone will read this or will even care! but here is my list anyway.

the usual mix of cool french women, scandi dolls, 60's chicks, a flashback and an occasional man (french naturally!)

is there anyone i've missed?
do you have an recommendations for me?

HAPPY NEW YEAR DOLLS!

music of the year

CHARLOTTE GAINSBOURG - REST
really, do i need to say anything about this? surely it's on your list too?

Labels:

music of the year

LISZA - LA VIE SAUVAGE
i have no idea how i found out about her but i'm so glad i did. a great blend of keren ann sounding vocals to smooth, francoise hardy or berry style tunes. perfect blowupdoll music. love this

Labels:

music of the year

TOVE LO - BLUE LIPS
so far, every album she has released has made my music of the year list. she writes so honestly about love, life, sex and drugs to absolutely great tunes. swedes rule!

Labels:

music of the year

CALOGERO - LIBERTE CHERIE
he never really let's me down. you know what to expect: passionate rockpop with piano balladry- not usually what i'm into but the emotions behind his lyrics and voice is so bloody good

Labels:

music of the year

MARY HOPKIN - POSTCARD (special edition)
a big thanks to lia pamina for drawing my attention to this. an unusual mix of folk, showtunes and 60s pop all produced by paul mccartney. the bonus tracks are so, so good too. think marianne, vashti and just trust me!

Labels:

music of the year

SOPHIA SOMAJO - FREUDIAN SLIP EP
cool scandinavian beats
