Podcast No. 13 – Beats and treats

Citroen DS

People take anything when there’s nothing
They get that way,
Just like that.
What they need is a little darling
A hermit or, a big star.

Some plastic or rubber thingamajig,
Some little thing, some kind of a toy.
That burns up like tinder does.

People are crazed, the times are a haze,
The times are a haze, and people are crazed.

Download Podcast No. 13 and sing along in English to my translation of the first verse of Jacques Dutronc’s “Les gens sont fous, les temps sont flous”. No really, it works!

Next, there’s lesser known Ronnie Bird admitting to stalking, followed by Tiny Yong who tries to resist a sweet talker. Nino Ferrer gets funky with food and Ivy does Gainsbourg. In the end, Colette Renard takes it away with a little bit of ‘java’.

Jacques Dutronc – Les gens sont fous, les temps sont flous
Ronnie Bird – Où va-t-elle ?
Tiny Young – Tu es le roi des menteurs
Nino Ferrer – Les cornichons
Ivy – L’anamour
Colette Renard – Marseille, tais-toi Marseille
