some kind of bliss

VANESSA PARADIS - POURTANT
really i had to find an excuse to post this picture. loving the song too - it's from her least successful album 'bliss' - but i'm not sure why this was - i think it's a pretty good collection of songs. this is certainly one of her best.

if trees could talk

MARIE LAFORET - JE N'AI RIEN APPRIS
in my recent 3 compilations: songs in the key of claudine (which can be found here) - this has to be my most favourite among the songs. it's a cover of 'both sides now' and and her voice sounds perfect.

disco romance

CLOETTA PARIS - BROKEN HEART TANGO
i can't believe i have only just discovered her! i was familiar with her song 'i miss you,someone' from a johan agebjorn mixtape (i think) but i had no idea about her wonderful album 'secret eyes' so massive thanks to scandipop for properly introducing her to me.
if you love sally shapiro, johan agebjorn, valerie dore and italo disco then you will absolutely love this. i can't recommend the album enough - check it out

MARIE-CLAIRE COURCEL - JE N'AI PAS LE TEMPS DE PLEURER
i have always loved this e.p. cover but i've only ever heard the brilliant 'un petit bigoudi' so have always been curious to hear some more. so get your curiosity satisfied today!

4 new posts and no comments but lots of downloads and only one comment on a super rare victoire scott song.
sometimes, a little comment or appreciation is needed to keep the blog going...

think of rain

CHRISTINE DELAROCHE - DOUCE EST LA PLUIE
i love christine although isn't her best song by far - a touching little song - not the best quality either but worth adding to the collection

another new ck song!


CHANTAL KELLY - LE VIEX PIN
in 68 she moved to the disques mouloudjumoul label and released 2 records. this is the b-side to the song 'fragola' (not sure why this record isn't featured on encyclopedisque). it's a beautiful little folk number that suits her voice perfectly. enjoy!
