update

after my pc problems a few weeks ago i bought a lap top, then sent it back and am now in the process of choosing another one. in the meantime, this means i have only a limited access to music to post. i would like to finish my requests week off with margo guryan 'under my umbrella' and victoire scott 'la licorne d'or' - does anyone have copies they could email to me?!

despite current difficulties i will continue to post more marvy doll tunes...

what is mordi listening to?

i'm not too sure why or how this came about but this collection of songs sung by french actresses appeals very much to me. check out virginie ledoyen cover niagara and listen as valerie lemercier manages to make one of all time fave songs (par amour, par pitie) still sound heartbreaking.

listen to marianne sing and chat at the bbc in 65 and 66. her voice is amazingly pure, innocent and very very english!

the new album 'toystore' from coralie clement is much nearer the brilliance of her debut album - there is a duet with etienne daho plus she covers the amazing lio song 'la reine des pommes'


the new album brought to you from my brilliant blog buddy guuzbourg - check out some cool versions of serge classics here. recommended listening.

so that's what i am listening to - discuss!
