This is really great! Hey Mordi, I saw an ad for a Serge Gainsbourg DVD in the Observer coming out soon. It features duets with BB, Jane Birkin, Charlotte Gainsbourg and France Gall! I kid you not. How great is that!

Thanks x a gazillion, I love Annie Philippe but hadn't heard this song. A brilliant song, and it gives you a clearer idea of her style and personality than her other songs - more her own individual stamp on this one.
Thanks for the heads-up mr barf, very exciting news.

Mordi, do you listen to Kahimi Karie? If not, I think you'd like her.

suzie - did you previously leave a comment on here saying that kahimi karie sounded like france gall? i recall searching for her songs after reading that, but didn't know where to start. the songs i heard must have been later stuff, as it wasn't in that vein at all. any song recommendations?

i have heard a few kahimi karie- but none of them made any impression on me- perhaps particular song recommendations would help me get to the best stuff!

Annie Philippe is really starting to grow on me. Very nice, Mordi. :-)

And a Gainsbourg DVD? Ace.

i remembered where i'd heard kahimi karie - on a duet with momus. now i know who she is, a japanese singer who does french pop style songs. i think maybe it was someone else saying someone sounded like france gall, so just ignore me on that.

Mordi, I am going on a two week or so road trip so if you don't see comments from me, know I am out their wishing I could hear the tunes on your page! Thanks for all the beautiful songs!!

Kahimi doesn't sound as much as like France Gall as April March does (her Laisse Tomber Les Filles is spot on almost exactly like France Gall.) Kahimi really sounds MUCH more breathy, like Pizzacato Five or Cibo Matto.

Probably my favorite Kahimi track is 'Lolitapop Dollhouse,' which is a song written by Momus. The most common record of Kahimi's in the US is probably 'Kahimi Karie - Kahimi Karie.'

It may just be that I am a fan of J-pop/Shibuya Kei already, and find the crossover between J-pop and ye-ye stuff fairly natural-- and listening to Kahimi is fairly easy to sandwich in with stuff like Les Sans Culottes or April March, if not the real old school stuff. There's at least two compilations that I know of which do the Japanese/French crossover, and possibly more-- 'Gainsbourg - Made in Japan,' and 'Camambert and Sushi,' though I only own tracks here and there from either... Mick Harvey's Serge Gainsbourg cover records are both better overall.

Er, have I babbled enough yet?
