hu !
yeah this is great !
i discovered this 3 years ago via Otis Fodder who ran the 365 days project. All his posts are archived at ubuweb.
here's the link with the jodie foster post...but, sadly, it's only a EP so there's only one more track existing by jodie foster from that period.

really really great! Thank you for this!

[by the way: did you check out Daphné's debutalbum L'emeraud?]

looky what I found - MP3s of both songs!
Jodie Foster Discography

Plus it mentions 2 more songs that are on the soundtrack LP.
The other 2 songs are nowhere near as good as the one you posted. Last night I was in such a music slump, where nothing would do, and that song was so perfect! And I used to be obsessed with Jodie in Freaky Friday and The Little Girl Who Lives Down The Lane when I was a teen. :)

I first heard this when when I downloaded it from the WFMU website. It certainly is something special!

THANK YOU spiked candy! you rule!

By Blogger mordi, at 18 August, 2005 13:18  

They're not very good though!!

I'll stick to the truly marvellous LA VIE C'EST CHOUETTE

By Blogger mordi, at 18 August, 2005 13:21  

no prob, mordi. Yeah, I thought one of them was a guy at first.

Wow, great track. I heard it first on the french web radio www.bide-et-musique.com, but I think it's a completely French version!

By Blogger Tom K, at 19 August, 2005 23:58  

I like this song.

I knew the completely French version. I am french and I can tell you that Jodie Foster speaks an excellent french with no accent (I heard her on several interwiews in French).

I don't know any others Jodie Foster song but I saw several times on French TV a document from 1978 showing her singing a duet with French Singer Claude Francois.
They were singing 'Comic Strip' by Serge Gainsbourg.

I can tell you it's worth seeing it!

Hi Christophe,

the 'comic strip' version sounds AMAZING - i'd love to see it!

I haven't managed to track down the full french version yet though.

WTH? I'm commenting on a five year old post? It doesn't matter if the magic word Jodie Foster is the subject... Yessss, she can sing. Listen to her in Kung Fu! Or listen to her in Svengali. Jodie could start a singing career whenever she wants to if you ask me. Oh, too bad she doesn't sing in The Little Girl Who Lives Down The Lane...
