On Sunday, I try to take it easy. I even have the time on occasion to catch up with new music releases.
Today I found out about Voila Belinda Carlisle (the ex Go-Go's) turns Bleue, Blanche, Rouge and revisits French Hits from the 40's to the 60's. From Gainsbourg (Bonnie and Clyde) to Leo Ferre (Avec le temps) to Edith Piaf (La Vie en Rose) for the better known to one of my favorites 'Pourtant tu m'aimes' whose pop groove reminded me of Etienne Daho.
She marries effortlessly the accordion of these old favorites with today's beats.
Her accent sounds as exotic on these tunes as my French infused English does in good old New Jersey.
