Great loungey beat that's dying to be sampled. This is early Brigitte Fontaine and it reminds the folks at Dusty Groove of early Serge Gainsbourg. I agree. Cool upbeat jazzy beat with emotive singing. Wish I spoke French. The only problem with this song is that it's too short.
from 17 Chansons Décadentes
02 Feb 04 ·jeanette: Ha! If you think this song is too short, you wanna catch the Vous Et Nous album with Areski: millions of songs, most clocking in under 3 mins, many under 1. And they look like primary school teachers on the cover.
Good call; brilliant tune.
60's French Beat with a inescapable riff and an overwhelming swagger in Dutronc's vocal delivery.
available on CD - Best of Jacques Dutronc (BMG)
03 Feb 03 ·Fig Alert: I've got a track that's just like this, but it's called Et moi, et toi, et soie, and it's on a questionable compilation called Ultra Chicks: Baby Pop, Vol. 3. A seemingly teen french pop sensation named Cléo belts it and I've always liked it. 06 Feb 03 ·standish: This song was also rejigged into "Alright, Alright, Alright" by Mungo Jerry, a big British bubblegum rock hit in 1973. I think it kept the Dutronc/Lansmann writing credit.
