70's gall - BONUS!

FRANCE GALL - QUAND ON EST ENFANT (1977)
i'm giving you an 8 day week as i realized that so far all my fg posts have been from 71-75 and nothing later than that. to rectify this, here is a song from the 1977 dancing disco (?!!) album that is totally undisco but totally beautiful.

i hope this week managed to convince you that there is more france gall out there to enjoy!

70's gall - wednesday

FRANCE GALL - CHASSE NEIGE (1971)
a great song that wouldn't have been out of place on the '1968' album

Tuesday, June 17, 2008

70's gall - tuesday

FRANCE GALL - S'I L'ON POUVAIT VRAIMENT PARLER (1974)
seriously, this is amazing. it is reminiscent of 70's francoise hardy message personnel era - perhaps because hubby michel berger wrote them both. such a gorgeous song.

70's gall - monday

FRANCE GALL - LE LACHE (1973)
i know everyone thinks the ultimate yé-yé goddess went a bit shit when the 70's arrived - but i'm here to prove you wrong! ok, her music may have altered a bit- but behind it all is her great voice. this is the week to learn to love the best of 70's france gall.

hi! sorry for the recent lack of posts but i have been for a short break to paris. the highlight of the trip was seeing calogero (who was amazing) - as you can see from the pics above- zazie made a surprise appearance and they sang a duet together- what a marvy doll bonus! calogero also sang poupée de cire poupée de son! yowsers!
