made in china 5

BAMBOU - LULU (1986)
this ode to her and serges son lucien (lulu) wasn't on her 'made in china' album and actually gives a better idea of where her music might have gone next. a much better song, with better production and much better male vocals!- clearly sounding more gainsbourgy. the b-side 'shanghai' is also not available on her album -you can hear it below - but does anyone have an mp3 of it (or can anyone rip it for me?!)


hope you've enjoyed these bambou days!

I've enjoyed these Bambou posts, Mordi.. I liked 'J'ai pleuré la yang tsé' & the Marc Levine duets the most.. ~Darby

I did not really enjoy them because I am not really interested in her. "Lulu" is the only song I like.

I also like her performance on "Opium" by Jacques Dutronc and you may like this one too if you don't already know it.

Hey Mordi,

I've kinda blotted out this tail-end of the Gainsbourg story, but hey - now I hear them, these songs grow on me!

I've ripped the "shanghai" song to an aif audio file for you, and will email it now!

A bientot, Scott
