It’s the small things

French Pop

While I was on exchange as a teenager, Vanessa Paradis was at the height of her music career and touring where I was staying. While I didn’t get to see her in concert my french friends put me onto her music and I bought CD singles galore to take home with me.

I’ve begun adding to my french pop collection with Carla Bruni and Elodie Frege with a little Jane Birkin and Serge Gainsbourgh thrown in. Its nice to be at the computer or be sitting outside with the raspy sounds of Carla Bruni serenading and transporting me away although I feel I should avert my ears when Je t’aime moi non plus comes on.
