she's back!

after my rant about alizee over a year ago where i disowned her (!) after her last album and her duet with norman wisdom-a-like olly murs - she is back. she won 'dance avec les stars' (dancing with the stars/strictly come dancing) and now has released a new album; 'blonde'- and it's good! the title track is a bit naff but the rest bring her back on form. with help from pascal obispo (love his own song 'fan') and zazie (too many good songs to name here) - she even sings a song titled 'mylene farmer'........!
listen to this track with lyrics by zazie. 

welcome back alizee (don't fuck it up again please)

a star is reborn

i love marie espinosa. her debut album is still one of my favourites even after all these years since it was first released. now after a long, long wait she is back. it looks like she's chosen not to work with a record company but to release songs in her own time, in her own way. that's fine with me, just as long as she releases something. this first taster of her new material is full of joie de vivre and she sounds just as great as always. welcome back marie!

don't forget to forget...her nips

CHARLOTTE GAINSBOURG - DON'T FORGET TO FORGET ME
it's taken me about 4 months to get over the sight of her nipples in nymphomaniac (anyone who has seen the film should know exactly what i'm talking about *gag*) so now that time has passed i can once again enjoy the 80s stylings of miss g

who knew?

ELLI ET JACNO - MAD AFFAIR
obviously it's not as good as the original (possibly one of the best french songs of the 80's 'main dans la main') but it's really interesting to hear their english language version.
it still makes me want to wear stripes and jerk from side to side like elli though :)
