Podcast No. 19 – Girls, chicks and a guy

Paris street scene

What a treat! Cute and fun yéyé girls from then and now, and a guy to tie, er, twist it up in the end. Podcast No. 19 has six groovy numbers ready to go. Chantal Goya is not sure about a guy, while Camille is very sure about him. Fabienne Delsol does France Gall her way and Jocelyne hums along merrily. Near the end, things go live with Vanessa Paradis and our man Richard Anthony twists his way out of girl trouble.

Chantal Goya – Tu m’as trop menti
Camille – Opération charme
Fabienne Delsol – Laisse tomber les filles
Jocelyne – La la la la la
Vanessa Paradis – Les Cactus
Richard Anthony – J’irai twister le blues

    La la la la la

    The original is “Land of 1000 Dances”, a soul song originally recorded by Chris Kenner in 1962. (See http://www.tsimon.com/land.htm and http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Land_of_a_Thousand_Dances)

    Looking forward to podcasts no.20, 21, 22…

    Regards Christoph

    Actually, La La La La La is not a cover of Chris Kenner’s song. It’s actually a cover of the song of the same name recorded by “Little” Stevie Wonder on a very early single, and revived by The Blendells in 1964. Jocelyne’s version came out shortly afterwards.

    Don’t forget the Walkers brothers’ version.
