Podcast No. 39 – French, funky and soulful


Yes! French funk and soul does exists and not all of it is a watered down version of some Motown hit. The proof is in Podcast No. 39, compiled by yours truly with some extra spice added in by Guuzbourg over at Girls and Giggles (Filles Sourires).

Some of the songs here may have been featured before, that is a first, but some things are definitely worth repeating. As well, some of the songs here are more recent, but their soulfulness is unquestionable.

Gil Now – Dis-le moi
Eddy Mitchell – Vieille fille
Sévérine – Je suis la même
Claude François – Un homme libre
Ben L’Oncle Soul – Demain j’arrête
Nino Ferrer – Je veux être noir

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
