DEAD LINKS

NOTE : DEAD LINKS
We'd like to thank everyone for preventing us of dead links. For the moment, we are note able to re-up them.

Feel free to keep on preventing us of those dead links. We will update them when we (I and Jeb-E-Diah) have more time to (understand : from september). Some of them will be partially or completely repacked considering albums which would have been issued thereafter and surely with new and improved artworks.

Stay tuned !

FRANCE GALL (ABO#307)


FRANCE GALL...
... EVIDEMMENT
(1964-1996)

Here we go for a complete month of ladies. For sure we rarely post ladies baistophes and that's all our shame. That's why we wanted to prove that we don't forget them at all.
First of that series, France Gall. Become a famous singer in 1966 after she won the Eurovision show with infamous Poupée De Cire, Poupée De Son, she then became much more famous with her collaborations with french singer/composer Serge Gainsbourg.
After a calm period between 1969 and 1974 when she only recorded singles, her carreer took another path towards stardom... mostly in France anyway. Meeting Michel Berger who was to become her husband, she found with him a composer able to write exactly songs that fitted her.
If, however, she has always remained a "variety" singer, we felt that, like Daniel Balavoine (with whom she sang in rock opera Starmania), she has all the dignity that no one can contest.
Her songs stills sound good to me and Il Jouait Du Piano Debout (a song about Jerry Lee Lewis), is something like one of those songs I won't forget because what it means to me.










My France Gall TOP3 :
1. Tout Pour La Musique (1981)
2. France Gall (1975)
3. Babacar (1987)

My France Gall BOTTOM3 :
1. Mes Premières Vraies Vacances (1964)
2. Poupée De Cire (1965)
3. Débranche (1984)

As a young girl she had a string of hits in Germany. Her young voice and the heavy french accent made her even more adorable.
