|Oui je dis adieu performed by Françoise Hardy ()|
Françoise Hardy at the beginning of the seventies had gained the right to be seen as something different than simply a part of the yé yé movement of the sixties. In 1971 with the help of a brazilian guitarist named Tuca she was about to make what is considered by many (and by me) as her best album. "La question" has a perfect instrumentation (strings, guitar and bass) and stunning arrangements. I dare you not to fall in love with the first 30 seconds of "Oui je dis adieu", in a way it reminds me of Scott Walker's "Plastic palace people" it has the same circular construction.
