Podcast No. 32 – French soul cuisine


Hold the phone, it’s Podcast No. 32! It was time to dig deep, to soul search and cook up a serious dish of French music with a side dish of soul. Nino Ferrer often said he wish he was black (yeah, baby), André Brasseur is simply possessed by the devil but in a good way, The Velvelettes show off their French skills Motown style, Denise Brousseau does Gainsbourg and by special request, Catherine Desmarets tries her hand at computer dating, sixties style. Oh and for dessert, Alica Dona covers an Italian classic! Yum!

Nino Ferrer – Le Roi d’Angleterre
André Brasseur – The Duck
The Velvelettes – Je veux crier
Denise Brousseau – N’écoute pas les idoles
Catherine Desmarets – Les petites croix
Alice Dona – Stasera no no no

Jacqueline Taïeb – On roule à 160
Johnny Hallyday – Noir c’est noir
La 4e volonté – CÉGEP blues
Michel Legrand – Marins, amis, aimants ou maris
Bonus track: Brigitte Bardot – C’est une bossa nova
