sheila week - bonus

SHEILA - SPACER
as bonus i thought i'd leave you with possibly the best disco song ever which was sung by sheila in 1979. i originally posted this in the very first month of blowupdoll and i still love it. written and produced by 'chic' it wipes the floor with anything else they did.

sheila week - monday

SHEILA - BONJOUR, MONSIEUR LE DIRECTEUR

sheila week - sunday

SHEILA - LES PAPILLIONS
thanks to joel, who showed me that sheila got her groove on in the late 60's and was more than just bad hair, cover versions and a schoolgirl image. if you enjoyed this sheila song from the other week, then you'll love this week!

girl in the striped poloneck

in november 2006 i posted a track by the postmarks which went down really well with blowupdoll readers due to their mix of doll vocals, 60's stylings and indie pop vibe. now they have a new album out and you must listen to this track from the album- it's cinematic and dollicious-
THE POSTMARKS - NO-ONE SAID THIS WOULD BE EASY
good, no?
check them out on myspace too.

in a 1965 issue of 'mademoiselle age tendre' the marvy gillian hills dresses up as some pop dolls of the day! so i am using this billiant concept for this week to bring you a mix of french pop tunes from the 60's.
