c.l. week - wednesday

CATHERINE ALFA - TU ES PRIS AU PIÉGE

c.l. week - tuesday

CHARLOTTE LESLIE - POUPÉE SANS AME
just look at her! she is with a knackered old dolls head! i love it.
every 60's french girl should sing at least one song about a poupée.

c.l. week - monday

CHARLOTTE LESLIE - L'AIR QUI DISAIT JE T'AIME
this song just gets better and better as it goes - je t'aime!

c.l. week - sunday

CHARLOTTE LESLIE - ALLEZ, TU PEUX SOUFFRIR
who?! c'mon you know who she is- she is responsible for one of the grooviest yé-yé tracks ever: 'les filles c'est fait...' which you must already have as it is a 60's francophiles necessity.
instead you are going to hear brand new charlotte songs starting with this (ok, some of you may know this!)

this week is being made entirely possible as the every marvy readysteadygirls has worked hard to collect these new songs and there some new pics to come too!

if you don't know readysteadygirls- put it on your favourites now! it's full of great articles, music clips and photos of retro dolls that are often featured here.

NICO - I'M NOT SAYING
this is as upbeat as nico gets! her first single is reminiscent of marianne (due to the involvement of andrew loog oldham with both of these dolls.)
