Brigitte Bardot’s Boobs !

Our Copain Francais Ike sent us a lovely story, on foot of our Initials BB post.

It goes kinda like this;

In 1968, I was 9, my uncle brought me to Courchevel 1850 at Le Jardin Alpin in the splendid all-wooden Hotel Le Metropole.

A girl took me on her knees and I fell asleep in her arms, my head comfortably resting on her breasts.

All these adults around the table were boring and I didn’t know why they were all staring to us – especially her of course.

Guess who she was…?

Man, we’re so f*king jealous!!

How did her boobs feel?

Yann Tiersen & Jay Haze – Comptine d’un autre été: l’après-midi (2008)


Yann Tiersen & Jay Haze – Comptine d’un autre été: l’après-midi (2008)

Call me crazy, but I find it hard to imagine a bruiser like Jay Haze being enchanted by Jean-Pierre Jeunet’s Le Fabuleux Destin d’Amélie Poulain, a cute and quirky love story known to many as Amelie. I’ll give him the benefit of the doubt and assume he saw it on a date with some totally hot piece of ass, which he dug into well before the credits rolled. In any case, he liked the musical score enough to slip a beat under one of the tracks and have Tuning Spork release it on a turquoise one-sided 12-inch. And, as unlikely as it may sound, Comptine d’un autre été: l’après-midi is a charmingly different track that really sticks with you, and succeeds in being both moving and bumpin’.

A contemporary composer with rare pop appeal, Yann Tiersen’s bittersweet melodies have adorned a number of critically acclaimed albums as well as soundtracks. Comptine d’un autre été: l’après-midi, exemplifies his style well, focusing on a melody that is as compelling as it is mournful. Jay Haze gives Tiersen’s composition plenty of breathing room, focusing on the drums and letting the piano do its thing. The beat is classic Haze—thick and funky with impressive attention to detail. The contrast between Haze’s oomph and Tiersen’s melancholy is strangely symbiotic, and the track is ultimately no less upbeat than Haze’s typical fare. Granted, this heavy-hearted track may be too sappy for some, but it is a refreshing change of pace for Haze as well as Tuning Spork, and will undoubtedly spark beautifully somber moments of clarity on the dance floor.

Sexy French singer babe Alizée

https://i0.wp.com/i53.photobucket.com/albums/g62/providence2/alizee.jpg

Here’s French hotty Alizée, purveyor of Euro-pop.

Oh and owner of the sexist body this side of Jessica Rabbit! (not that I’m into rabbits … well not anymore!)

//starophileimages.free.fr/retouches/alizee_003.jpg” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.

Alizée ‘s a big star in Franceland, despite coming from the distant southern island of Corsica, the citizens thereof being somewhat looked down upon by “mainlanders!”

Of course, the great great great grandfather of Sarkozy, Napoleon Bonaparte was born in the town of Ajaccio on Corsica a few years before Alizée (15 August 1769).

I’m not sure whether Alizée’s related to Napo!

Alizée is famous for her stage shows where she dresses like a cross between an Amsterdam hooker and a Los Angeles gonzo porn star!

We know a little more, but it’s not as interesting!

We’ll tell you more in a minute after we post a hot pic of the Corsican hotty!

https://i2.wp.com/stuff.brorsan.com/alizee.jpg

Alizée Jacotey is a French singer, born August 21, 1984 (6 days after Napoleon’s birth date! ) in Ajaccio, Corsica.

She goes by the stage name Alizée —the feminine form of alizé, the trade wind! Erm …. OK, whatever!

She was discovered by Mylène Farmer, following her winning performance in the talent show, Graines de Star, when aged only 15 back in 1999.

While collaborating with Mylène Farmer and Laurent Boutonnat, Alizée released two albums—both of which were hits inside and outside of France.

https://i0.wp.com/blog.celebritymovieblog.com/wp-content/uploads/2007/04/alizee3xw4_1.jpg

Alizée entered the music business in 2000. She has since released three studio albums – first two of which were composed by Laurent Boutonnat and written by Mylène Farmer.

Her first album was Gourmandises, which received Platinum certification within three months of release. Gourmandises was a success both in France and abroad—after it had its international launch in 2001—earning Alizée the distinction of being the highest selling female French singer in 2001.

The album featured her most successful single “Moi… Lolita” which reached number one in several countries in Europe and East Asia. The marketing campaign around the single affixed Alizée’s image as that of a seductive lolita!

Gourmandises was followed by a second studio album, Mes Courants Électriques in 2003, which was also quite successful, though not as big a hit as Alizée’s debut album. Following its release, Alizée toured France during the fall of 2003, performing in 43 concerts throughout France, along with Belgium and Switzerland.

Alizée married fellow French singer Jérémy Chatelain in late 2003. Since her marriage she took a break from singing, but returned with a new album, titled Psychédélices on December 3, 2007.

http://elcesare.files.wordpress.com/2008/03/alizee2.jpg

Some trivia (even more trivial than what’s above!)

  • Alizée has sold more than five million albums throughout Europe.
  • She has starred in a Japanese commercial and has taken part in various stage shows and live performances outside of Japan.
  • A dance that can be performed by the female Night Elf avatar in the computer game World of Warcraft, published by Blizzard Entertainment, contains an animation that closely resembles the choreography of a section of her stage performances for J’en Ai Marre.
  • The stage costume for the same performance is considered by many to be inspired by a blue sailor outfit seen in the 1997 remake of Nabokov’s Lolita, due to a noticeable similarity in design.

She sure can wriggle that pert body!
Nice!!!

Johnny Hallyday – Hamlet [1976]

Johnny Hallyday – Hamlet [1976]

What a piece of work is a man! How noble in reason! How infinite in faculty! In form, in moving, how express and admirable! In action how like an angel! In apprehension how like a god! the beauty of the world! The paragon of animals!

And yet, to me, what is this quintessence of dust?

Man delights not me; no, nor woman neither, though, by your smiling, you seem to say so.

Hamlet, Act II, scene II
Here’s something that our pal Joe Le Taxi sent us – although he isn’t a Johnny fan!

Here, Johnny does Willy the Shake! Sounds kinda weird? It is fucking weird!

Here Johnny’s messing about with the Bard’s greatest work – and my favourite – Hamlet!! Has he no shame?!

A follisome project, and typically overblown. But some nice tunes / melodies in here.

If Johnny’s supposed to be ‘… the French equivalent of Elvis Presley’, then close your eyes for a moment and imagine Elvis singing Hamlet! Then check this!!

There is nothing either good or bad, but thinking makes it so.

-Hamlet, Act II, scene II

The album also has contributions from starfucker supreme, and future Queen of Franceland, !!

The lyrics of the tracks (look for the track’s title) can be had here: Hallyday Lyrics

38 Fully-Dramatized Plays (Arkangel Shakespeare)


… but, do I really need to say, read Willy’s majestic play itself instead!!

Or if you’re a lazy motherfucker and/or dumb, you can listen to the great work in the magnificent Arkangel Shakespeare BOX SET we posted a few weeks back!

Si tu passes là-bas vers le Nord
Ou les vents soufflent sur la frontière
N’oublie pas de donner le bonjour
À la fille, qui fût mon amour

Si tu croises les troupeaux de rennes
Vers la rivière à l’été finissant
Assures-toi qu’un bon châle de laine
La protège du froid et du vent

A-t-elle encore ses blonds cheveux si long
Qui dansait jusqu’au creux de ses reins
a-t-elle encore ses blonds cheveux si long
C’est comme ça que je l’aimais bien

Je me demande si elle m’a oublié
Moi j’ai prié pour elle tous les jours
Dans la lumière des nuits de l’été
Dans le froid du petit jour.

Si tu passes là-bas vers le Nord
Ou les vents soufflent sur la frontière
N’oublie pas de donner le bonjour
À la fille, qui fût mon amour

Renaud – Les Introuvables / Song for Mad Maggie!

cartoons © roykeanz, 2008

When England was the whore of the world,

Margaret was her madam

There is no female hooligan
Imbecilic, filled with murder
No, not even in Britain
Except, for sure, Madame Thatcher

We’ve posted the lovely Maggie ditty from Elvis Costello, Tramp the Dirt Down and it’s album Spike!

In similar vein, here’s another great song, dedicated to Mad Maggie T., it’s Miss Maggie by French singer Renaud (aka Renaud Séchan).

Women of the world or street
So very often just the same
I love every one I meet
Have they fame or be they plain

Down to the last stupid crow
I praise with every word I utter
I’m disgusted by men now
With their morals from the gutter

‘Cause there’s no woman in this land
Quite so stupid as her brother
Nor so vain or underhand
Except, maybe, Madame Thatcher

Lady I love you now, I do
‘Cause when a sport becomes a war
There’s no girls, or very few
Amongst those fans who yell for more

Those with no marbles left to lose
Up to here with hate and beer
Deifying fools in blue
Insulting bastards with a sneer

There is no female hooligan
Imbecilic, filled with murder
No, not even in Britain
Except, for sure, Madame Thatcher

I love woman just because
When she’s sitting at the wheel
There’s no man-like sense of loss
No urge to kill is yours to feel

For a slightly damaged headlight
Or for two fingers in the air
There are those who wish to fight
To the death if they but dare

An “up yours” their favourite sign
There’s no woman so vulgar
To use this symbol all the time
Except, perhaps, Madame Thatcher

How I love you, dear woman
You don’t go to war to die
Because the vision of a gun
Does not make you pant and sigh

Amongst those hunters of the night
Who jump on creatures that are frail
And occasionnally an Arabite
I’ve yet to see a female

There is no woman low enough
To spit and polish a revolver
Just to feel so bloody tough
Except, for sure, Madame Thatcher

The atom bomb was never made
By a human female brain
And no female hand has slayed
Those U.S. peoples of the plain

Palestinians or Armenians
Bear their witness form the grave
That a genocide is masculine
Like a SS or a Green Beret

In this bloody mass of man
Each assassin is a brother
There’s no woman to rival them
Except, of course, Madame Thatcher

And lastly Woman, above all
I love hour gentleness so mild
A man draws strength from his own balles
Wich like his gun he shoots from wild

And when the final curtain draws
He’ll join the cretins in the harvest
Playing football, playing wars
Or who can piss the farthest

I would join the doggic host
And love my days on earth
As my day to day lampost
I would use Madame Thatcher.

Elvis Costello – Wake up Maggie (Palin-Thatcher) / SPIKE

cartoons © roykeanz, 2008

When England was the whore of the world,

Margaret was her madam

Mad Maggie’s being resurrected lately!

The only touchstone that can fully describe the uber right-wing sentiments of bimbo Polar Palin!

Who’d have thought some mad nazi bitch with potentially limitless power would crawl out of some Alaskan sewer and almost make Mad Maggie Thatcher look liberal! Almost!

That Thatcher was one evil, right-wing cunt!


Thatcher wreaked untold havoc in her own country and across vast tracts of the world;

  • in Britland, she tried to decimate the working class – and to a large extent succeeded (e.g. forcibly ruining the livelihood of thousands of miners, dismantling the unions, etc),
  • in Northern Ireland (e.g. refusing to give basic rights to IRA prisoners, resulting in the deaths of many prisoners by horrific hunger-strike and also ultimately leading to the rise of IRA power; authorising deaths squads to kill certain individuals with views contrary to hers; overseeing a government which gave confidential police information on suspected IRA members to Protestant Terrorist murder gangs; etc. etc.),
  • in the Malvinas Islands (staging an insane war over a piece of uninhabited Argentinian rock in the Atlantic in order to win an upcoming election!)
  • and further afield (being a big supporter of evil tyrant Pinochet, backing senile Ronny Reagan’s crazy campaign of supporting tyrannical right-wing despots in numerous places from Chile to Salvador to Guatemala to SE Asia!)!

There’s loads more shit too if I wanted to waste more time remembering! But I don’t!

Is this mad evil hag still alive?


Elvis Costello famously wrote the bile filled “Tramp the Dirt Down” in the bitch’s honour on his 1989 LP Spike which we post below.

Costello’s ultimate dream therein is that “… when they finally put you in the ground, I’ll stand on your grave and tramp the dirt down” !!

Why don’t you tell us how you really feel, Elvis?!!

This track makes Lennon’s great “How do you Sleep?” seem like a nursery rhyme!!

[ThatcherIllusion3.JPG]

I saw a newspaper picture from the political campaign
A woman was kissing a child, who was obviously in pain
She spills with compassion, as that young child’s
Face in her hands she grips
Can you imagine all that greed and avarice
Coming down on that child’s lips

Well I hope I don’t die too soon
I pray the lord my soul to save
Oh Ill be a good boy, I’m trying so hard to behave
Because theres one thing I know, Id like to live
Long enough to savour
Thats when they finally put you in the ground
I’ll stand on your grave and tramp the dirt down

When England was the whore of the world
Margaret was her madam
And the future looked as bright and as clear as
The black tarmacadam
Well I hope that she sleeps well at night, isn’t
Haunted by every tiny detail
cos when she held that lovely face in her hands
All she thought of was betrayal

And now the cynical ones say that it all ends the same in the long run
Try telling that to the desperate father who just squeezed the life from his only son
And how its only voices in your head and dreams you never dreamt
Try telling him the subtle difference between justice and contempt
Try telling me she isn’t angry with this pitiful discontent
When they flaunt it in your face as you line up for punishment
And then expect you to say thank you straighten up, look proud and pleased
Because you’ve only got the symptoms, you haven’t got the whole disease
Just like a schoolboy, whose head’s like a tin-can
Filled up with dreams then poured down the drain
Try telling that to the boys on both sides, being blown to bits or beaten and maimed
Who takes all the glory and none of the shame

Well I hope you live long now, I pray the lord your soul to keep
I think Ill be going before we fold our arms and start to weep
I never thought for a moment that human life could be so cheap
cos when they finally put you in the ground
They’ll stand there laughing and tramp the dirt down

Yann Tiersen – Discography (21 albums)

Guillaume Yann Tiersen (born 23 June 1970) is a French musician and composer known internationally for composing the score to the Jean-Pierre Jeunet movie Amélie.

His music is recognized by its use of a large variety of instruments in relatively minimalist compositions, often with a touch of either European classical music or french folk music, using primarily the piano, accordion or violin together with instruments like the melodica, xylophone, toy piano, ondes martenot, harpsichord and typewriter.

He has been compared to musicians like Chopin, Erik Satie, Phillip Glass and Michael Nyman!

French Post-Punk & Cold Wave 1978-1983 ; Mödern Young People – Des Jeunes Gens Mödernes –

French Post-Punk & Cold Wave 1978-1983
Des Jeunes Gens Mödernes – Mödern Young People
Mp3 256kbps VBR

Between the late 70s and mid-80s in France, a prolific and chaotic music scene that combined the energy of rock-n-roll, punk nihilism and electronic experimentation.

A kind of hope and frenzied vitality could also be detected during these years. A breed of modernist utopia, which was sometimes wilfully ironic, fed them both. Resistant to the post-Hippie utopias of the previous generation, they were in search of an identity. They recognised themselves in the dark lyrics, the cold synthetic music and the laid-back attitude of the new groups hatching all over the country, as much in the provinces as in Paris.

With the benefit of thirty years hindsight, the Modern Young People project reactivates this post-punk/novo disk/French new cold wave scene, through an exhibition, a book, an audio compilation, and a documentary film.

One of the projects ambitions is to highlight a cross-section of the specific creative diversity of this scene. It does so by engaging with the music produced by this scene, but also with the aesthetics and the attitudes.

Brigitte Bardot sings Serge Gainsbourg’s Bubble Gum (1965)

[Brigitte+Bardot017.JPG]
Love, my friend, is just like Bubble Bubble Gum !

A wonderful clip of BB in her hotty heyday belting out some classic Gainsbourg pop!

This piece is much beloved by mad Manc Morrissey, who’s been playing it at his gigs.

Aimer toujours le même homme
C’est des histoires à la gomme
L’amour mon vieux c’est tout comme
Du bubble bubble gum

Tu bâilles et tu t’étires comme
Tu éclates de rire comme
Tu es rose pâle comme
Mon bubble bubble gum

Entre mes bras tu étais comme
Tu étais tendre et sucré comme
Tu as perdu ta saveur comme
Mon bubble bubble gum

Si je pouvais te balancer comme
Mais tu me colles aux semelles comme
Allez va reviens welcome
Mon bubble bubble gum

Gillian Hills – Ma Premiere Cigarette

https://i1.wp.com/i201.photobucket.com/albums/aa232/custer_2007/1-134.jpgGillian Hills is a rather mysterious femme fatale!

Born on 5 June 1944, she was, back in the 1960s and 1970s, an actress and singer who achieved minor success but who gained a cult following.

Born in Cairo Egypt to English parents, Hills grew up to be a jaw-droppingly beautiful minor star.

Emerging in French culture in the shadow of the similar Brigitte Bardot (even pursued and thrust into movies by Bardot’s ex-husband playboy Roger Vadim [a man also linked to Catherine Deneuve and Jane Fonda! what a bastard!]) Gillian was, arguably, prettier then Brigitte and had a stronger, though less sultry voice.

Although English, she achieved success in France in the sixties as a singer (a little akin to Jane Birkin). Strange, I always thought those frenchies disliked les rosbifs (the “Roast Beefs”)!!

She however did not share Bardot’s instincts or backings by France’s Sultans of music, like Serge Gainsbourg, who wrote songs for Bardot (although she did work with Serge once or twice).

Her music career consisted mostly of covering American songs in French, though later she would write her own songs.

Gillian also appeared – often scantily clad or undressed! – in quite a number of excellent 1960s and 1970s movies including A Clockwork Orange, Blow-Up and Beat Girl, amongst others. She also starred in the classic 1969 adaptation of Alan Garner’s novel The Owl Service, as Alison Bradley.

Beat Girl, of course, had the wonderful tagline;

My mother was a stripper …. I want to be a stripper too!

I love that attitude in a young sexy chick!

https://i2.wp.com/www.orbitmedia.co.uk/images/filmimages/Beat%20Girl.png

//www.chachacharming.com/content/images/3/side4.jpg” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.Over 30 years ago, Gillian did a Reggie Perrin and suddenly disappeared from public view! Many rumours surrounded her sudden absence. Prosaically though, she apparently is working in publishing. But nobody knows for sure! Except herself, obviously! It’s a rather strange story.

According to Gillian Hills experts, Micheline de Séralux & Michel Feron, in 1975 Gillian decided it was time to stop making movies, and she moved to New York to work as an illustrator for various books and magazines.

Her disappearance in the ’80s prompted a rumour that she had died (suicide according to some French newspapers, or burnt alive when her apartment caught fire). However, Jukebox magazine writer Jean-William Thoury discovered, some 15 years later, that she had suffered from a very long illness, but was in good health now. Also, she was no stranger to the world of music as she married Stewart Young, the manager for the Scorpions.

So here’s naughty francophile Gillian Hills with Ma Premiere Cigarette (My First Cigarette)!

Everybody knows smoking can be so sexy! Everybody knows it’s good for you too!

On this track, this francophile hotty sounds a tad like a francophile Marilyn!

Download the track here; MA PREMIERE CIGARETTE

And here’s naughty francophile Gillian Hills singing the song!

Just watch her smoulder and smoke!

Serge Gainsbourg & Brigitte Bardot – Bonnie and Clyde LP (1968)


Serge Gainsbourg & Brigitte Bardot – Bonnie and Clyde (1968)
# Audio CD (June 22, 2004)
# Original Release Date: 1968
# Label: Polygram Int’l
# ASIN: B00000GAV2

https://i2.wp.com/www.gainsbourg.org/vrsn2/img/filmo/01.gif
Bonnie and Clyde, the single, was a seminal piece of sixties pop. Typically Serge. Typically wonderful. Typically timeless!

And here, not only with that wonderful track, but loads of other great music, is the 1968 collaboration between then uber-hot actress Brigitte Bardot and her then boyfriend, the late great Serge Gainsbourg!

This is is the 20 bit digitally remastered reissue!

This release includes the original cover art and all 12 of the original tracks, including the wonderful title song.

https://i0.wp.com/www.brigittebardot.com/images/039_25511.jpgGainsbourg’s 60’s music is so pop & cute…Nobody else sings these songs like BB does(especially in Comic Strip(#3). Her “Shebam! Pow! Blop! Wizz!” makes this song so vividly pop)! The dangerous(?) sound of serge & BB’s voices in Bonnie and Clyde(#1) seems to me like the reflection of their relationship (BB was married; their relationship wasn’t going anywhere just like Bonnie & Clyde couldn’t get away from their crimes and were being in the danger together). Great album to get the feel of 60’s French pop. Serge is still “singing” in this album, not whispering like in his later works. Definitely before (or begining of ) he established his lolita concept.

Mélanie Dahan – La Princesse Et Les Croque-Notes [2008]

https://i1.wp.com/img99.imageshack.us/img99/7075/51kdh1iuyt500yo0.jpg

Mélanie Dahan – La Princesse Et Les Croque-Notes [2008]

mp3 – 320kbs – 102.5mb + 21.5mb

More great French music, very kindly sent to us by our copain Joe taxi, a renowned expert in all things French. From French music to French cinema to French pussy! And everything in between!

Here’s a rising star in the French jazz scene, the talented – and rather hot! – Mélanie Dahan!

Recently nominated for JAZZ IN JUAN-LES-PINS REVELATIONS (famous jazz festival in the south of France) and named as “the young hopeful of French jazz vocal” at LES COULEURS DU JAZZ festival in 2005, swinging MELANIE DAHAN encompasses her wide array of influences from French chanson to the Jazz and Latin repertoire, to be emotionally believable at every turn.

A brand-new project was born in 2006: Melanie DAHAN has been fortunate to meet a tremendous musician, pianist GIOVANNI MIRABASSI, to pay a tribute to a famous French lyricist from Montmartre: BERNARD DIMEY. A full justice is done to his lyrics, all marked by strong melodies and meaty harmonic progressions.

“A very pure and honey voice with a delicate swing and sensitivity, a remarkable talent who fully deserves to prosper in the jazz landscape… ” (JL BARON)

“Melanie Dahan hasn’t had her hour of glory yet, but it won’t be long coming.” (Jean-Michel Proust – Nouvel Observateur – TSF Jazz radio in Paris)

https://i2.wp.com/img142.imageshack.us/img142/589/p1040695cgu7.jpg

Melanie Dahan was 11 years old when she first started to sing: she was the youngest member of a troupe of singers, dancers, and comedians, called “LES GAVROCHES”. She performed in several musicals and shows on stage for 5 years.

After that great experience, she switched to jazz, maybe because at home she grew up bathed in the sound of jazz and bossa nova, favoured by her amateur pianist father. Also maybe because one day, she fell in love with jazz when she listened to album “Unforgettable” by Natalie Cole and live album “Ella in Berlin”. Then without taking any jazz lesson, only inspired by her favourite singers, she decided to look for musicians and to give a first gig in October 2001.

Melanie gained valuable experience by performing live with her band. She elegantly sang the well-known standards but also original compositions (lyrics: Melanie DAHAN / music: Pierre BERTRAND). She had the opportunity to meet truly good musicians: pianists PIERRE CHRISTOPHE, AHMET GULBAY, contrabassists NICOLA SABATO, MARC MICHEL LEBEVILLON, drummer BENJAMIN HENNOCQ… “Playing here and there in Parisian jazz clubs, connecting with the audience, I quickly realized how exciting it was to be able to improvise and swing to vary tunes and suit my own style. It gets you right there!”

Melanie has always been a good student. After High School, she studied International Trade at Sorbonne University in Paris. But as music was a deep passion for her, she was secretly aspiring to a singing career. In 2003, she took the plunge and she decided to perform professionally.

She learnt vocal technique at STUDIO DES VARIETES and she eventually studied jazz at IACP and BILL EVANS PIANO ACADEMY under the tutelage of Sara Lazarus and Michelle Hendricks. Today she still feels like studying jazz (is there an end one day?) and she is herself a singing instructor.

MELANIE DAHAN CONCERT & ITW

From a concert at DIVAN DU MONDE (Paris) in August 2006

Contrairement au croque-notes de la chanson de Brassens, certainement aucun regret ne doit envahir les musiciens qui ont eu l’heureuse idée d’accepter de jouer avec la chanteuse Mélanie Dahan dont le premier disque était déjà en rupture de stock un mois après sa sortie en avril et dont une nouvelle édition vient combler ceux qui ne l’avait pas trouvé.

Il est vrai que celle-ci a fait un choix digne d’une princesse pour l’accompagnement des chansons de son premier album avec notamment le pianiste Giovanni Mirabassi grandement réputé pour le cantabile merveilleux de son piano et qui montre encore son talent exceptionnel dans l’improvisation autour de la chanson française.

Quant à la liste des morceaux interprétés elle constitue aussi un choix de princesse avec les plus grandes références de la chanson française : Aznavour, Brassens, Nougaro, Léo Ferré … à qui la jeune chanteuse emprunte des textes poétiques avec un naturel et une fraîcheur d’esprit étonnante, que ceux-ci soient ou non conçus à l’origine pour être portés par des hommes, la jeune femme les offre dans une interprétation d’une grande délicatesse et clarté qui en exalte la beauté.

Soutenue par des musiciens dont les arrangements jazz auraient certainement fait rêver, et feront jaloux encore, les interprètes initiaux, Mélanie Dahan par sa voix chaleureuse charme agréablement les oreilles sensibles aux beaux textes et mélodies.

NICO & SERGE GAINSBOURG "STRIPTEASE"

https://i2.wp.com/i10.photobucket.com/albums/a118/ImInDaBand/04nico01.jpg

No, unfortunately, the stunning Nico (well, she was in the sixties) does not perform a striptease!

Nevertheless, it’s great to hear this wonderful Serge track. And the images are good too.

Cocoon79 says;

I made a videoclip for the wonderful and rare track by nico & serge gainsbourg “strip-tease”! (thanks to romi for climbing up the trees;)

Thanks also, Romi. I hope you didn’t fall on your ass!

Big thanks to Cocoon79
