annie rules!

ANNIE PHILIPPE - MES AMIS, MES COPAINS
this is probably my favourite annie song - maybe because it's heartfelt and cute or maybe because it reminds me of a brilliant holiday in paris. this is for everyone who follows my blog ; mes amis, mes copains! x

ANNIE PHILIPPE - QUARANTE MARINGOUINS
is this song really about 40 mosquitoes or is that just a bad google translation?! either way this is just great - turn it up!

hey hey it's alizee

i am assuming they way everyone is singing along that these 2 songs she is singing are cover versions - i wish she would record 'la vie par procuration' - it really suited her. the best thing about these clips is her sailor moon tattoo - i am well jealous!

ANNIE PHILIPPE - LE MEME AMOUR
i've always have a lot of time for annie -especially her songs from the second half of the 60's. this song has it all - a great psyche out start, a kicking beat, glorious trumpets and annies voice.

talking of sylvie and francoise...2


i have to confess - i can't bear petula clark! or 'pet' as she thinks she's affectionately known in the uk - she thinks she's a british icon - she's not.

fräulein francoise 1

FRANCOISE HARDY - BALD IST SO LANG HER
like many artists at the time, francoise recorded in other languages apart from french - including a fantastic german album in 1970. and it's nowhere near as unappealing as it sounds! - she makes a rather ugly language sound marvy!
