i'm unsure about the year this was recorded but it's a great french pop song. apparently, france is singing about lsd. 'tee-nie wee-nie bopp-ie'is rather infectious.
26 Apr 01 ·tinks: Yeah, I love this track. It was written by Serge Gainsbourg and recorded in 1967. It was released on the "1968" LP, which is available on CD as a French import. Also includes the great song "Made in France". 02 May 01 ·tinks: i should also mention that the song isn't really about lsd...it's not really *about* anything. kinda like seinfeld. she just mentions it in there. 28 May 01 ·daidai: yeh, i really wasn't too sure about this. i was merely going off of information from a source. ^.^
there is something very modern about this song. it's a timeless tune that was later reworked by godzuki on the album pop romantique. brillant song and my personal bardot favorite.
29 Apr 01 ·king8egg: pizzicato five do a great version of this song(with kraftwerk samples!) on their album "romantique 96". 28 May 01 ·daidai: p5's version is great however i think i like godzuki's cover better[just a little] . ^.^ 23 Jun 01 ·Erik: And don't forget John Zorn's brilliant a capella version.
i love this psyche sounding classic. the backing track vocals compliment one another perfectly. i love the strings in this song. a little poppy but rocking.

28 Jun 01 ·delicado: I agree that this is quite brilliant. I've had the Spanky and our Gang version of this for a few years, and I have to admit I had assumed that they wrote it. But this version is even better! Amazingly rocking and beautiful. The rest of the album is superb as well, don't you agree? I can listen to it all day... 05 Dec 01 ·tempted: Oh yes, the arrangement and the atmosphere on each and every song by Margo Guryan is so beautiful. The intimate chamber strings, flutes and Margo's voice.. a lot like Claudine Longet's.
The version by Bobbie Gentry & Glen Campbell is a fine one, too.
