i'm such a massive fan of this song - it's great to see her singing it, even if there is a bit of disappointment that it wasn't a dim dam dom spectacular style production.

bigger is better

i had to post this, partly due to fane reminding me what a lush track this (just listen out for her 'hmmmm') but also because tonight i'm going to the cinema to see 'plein soleil' as it has been re-released! how wonderful it will be to see marie and her big eyes and high cheekbones on the big screen!

a bit chipmunky!

tamping, fuming, raging!

i'm fucking fuming! what the fuck is alizee doing guesting on this piece of musical shite from olly murs? he doesn't even know who she is! he's never even heard of her before! he's a retarded muppet with zero talent and a whole heap of over confidence in his ability. a smug little shit. and what the hell are alizees management thinking? this is the final nail in alizees coffin for me. you're dead to me alizee!*
