Podcast No. 20 – Psychedelic with a jazz chaser

Arche de Triomphe

Podcast No. 20 starts off psychedelic with some Richard de Bordeaux & Daniel Beretta and Les Papyvores, moves in a female direction with Sophie Mansart and Christine Pilzer, and finishes up in jazz lounge with Les Double Six and Lucky Blondo.

I want to know: are there other James Bond themes in French? I own Bob Asklöf ‘Bons baisers de Russie’ (From Russian with Love)(see Podcast No. 2), Mireille Mathieu ‘Les yeux de l’amour’ (‘The Look of Love’, original Casino Royale) and Lucky Blondo ‘Tu vivras deux fois’ (‘You Only Live Twice’). I already know about Michel Legrand’s music to ‘Never Say Never Again’ and Isabelle Aubret doing ‘Savez-vous ce qu’il faut au sapin de Noël ?’ (that Christmas ditty with children singing in ‘On Her Majesty’s Secret Service’). If you know anything, please tell me by commenting here.

Richard de Bordeaux & Daniel Beretta – La drogue
Les Papyvores – Le papyvore
Sophie Mansart – Au secours, aidez-moi
Christine Pilzer – Mon p’tit homme spatial
Les Double Six – Tout en dodelinant
Lucky Blondo – Tu vivras deux fois

C’est Extra

C'est Extra

C’est Extra at La Tulipe in Montréal, Québec, Canada. Frenchy jazzy swing.


Ivan, Boris and Marie

Another song that can be heard on Radio Oh la la, ‘Ivan, Boris et Moi’ by Marie Laforêt, has an injection of Slavic roots. The male dancers in the cute rubashkas (those Russian shirts) are none other than Jean Yanne, Serge Gainsbourg and Sacha Distel, the last two having Russian and Ukrainian roots. The film is from the Sacha Show, which of course is the hip TV show Sacha hosted. Marie looks great!
