Frank Mills  performed by  Sandie Shaw  (1970)
Composed by Ragni / Rado / MacDermot / Unknown
Arranged by Ken Woodman
From: UK
Mood: As gorgeous as Sandie herself
Recommended by jeanette [profile] on Wednesday 7th July 2004

Always one of my favourites from Hair for its cutie-pie quality. I think it encapsulates a certain kind of teenage girl, forward but fickle, scared but full of bravado. And that's very unusual for a song to do; the complexity of pubescent girls is very rarely explored without titillation and / or simplicity.

Sandie, hardly a teen herself at 23, nevertheless gives this a very beautiful interpretation in French. Her accent to me sounds good but what do I know, I can barely manage "la plume de ma tante".

Good accompaniment arranged by her long-time collaborator Ken Woodman.

from Pourvu Que Ca Dure (EMI 7243 5 91576 2 7), available on CD

Other Versions: Too many to mention! I've at least ten different Hair soundtracks...
