Cest Chic: French Girl Singers of the 1960s / Various [Import]
(United Kingdom - Import)
2010 collection of fabulous French female Pop artists from the '60s. Comprising 24 tracks by 20 acts - Françoise Hardy, France Gall, Jacqueline Taïeb and the country's top girl group Les Gam's are each represented by two titles - C'est Chic! Features many of the premier female stars of Gallic pop, plus a few French-singing non-nationals for good measure. The majority of the songs here are French compositions, but astute listeners will recognize some others in their English language originals. 'We Got a Thing That's in the Groove' (as popularized by US soul group the Capitols), 'I'm Going Out with the Girls' (Barbara Chandler), 'Laugh at Me' (Sonny Bono), 'Around And Around We Go' (Lonnie Jay & the Jaynes), 'Tiny Goddess' (Nirvana), 'He's in Town' (the Tokens) and 'The Sha La La Song' (Marianne Faithfull) are each given a distinctive French twist. Ace.
