new christie - 4

CHRISTIE LAUME - QUAND ON S'EST DIT TU
she almost sounds like a girl group in this song - you'd be forgiven for thinking it was les parisiennes or similar! thanks to frans again for this one!

ok - so my christie collection isn't yet fully complete - c'mon guys help me out! i still need:

cette plage deserte
sur mon petit nuage
amour toujours et cie
mais parle moi d'amour

new christie - 2

CHRISTIE LAUME - JE N'AI PAS VOLE CET AMOUR
we have frans to thank for this - another new - and fantastic song from miss laume. with more of a jazzy piano feel than we are used to - yet it still retains a funky vibe.

vannier doll

get over to doms l'amour electronique to hear a wonderfully unnerving breathy doll courtesy of j.c. vannier. i'm pretty sure you won't regret it!

JEANETTE - A HEART SO WARM AND SO TENDER
the very early 80's were a great period for her- so many of her songs around this time are just great. this is the english language version of her classic 'corazon de poeta'.

JEANETTE - SORROW
i like this version of her early 80's song  'frente a frente' - it's still filled with melancholy and makes my heart ache a little!

sunday night movie


for those in the u.k. - make sure to watch marianne faithfull in 'irina palm' on sunday night (12.00 BBC2) - a great film she made a few years ago.

jeanette in english

JEANETTE - I AM A REBEL
i love jeanette in spanish, i love jeanette in french, i now also love jeanette in english (with the exception of her 'love is blue' cover which is very disappointing). i hope you'll love jeanettes 'soy rebelde' in english too!

SERGE GAINSBOURG - MANON
i'd never been to his grave before - i totally forgot to bring him any gitanes too, but good to pay respect to the man who had so much influence on the many dolls we love. i am posting this song because firstly he is a genius and secondly because i think it is just beautifully sad
