Not apropos of this post, but re: Osez Joséphine, both the woman and the white horse represent a beautiful silent strength.

Le chanteur Alain Bashung was a good and talented musician who created great songs. Unfortunately he died two years ago.

As for the photograph who directed the clip he's also very talented and specialises in filming musicians at work. Jean-Baptiste Mondino.

He has directed music videos for Madonna, David Bowie, Sting, Björk, China Moses (Dee Dee Bridgewater's daughter)

Osez Joséphine was a hit when it was released 20 years ago.

Selon le magazine Rolling Stone en 2010, cet album est le meilleur album de rock français

Here's the song that made him famous 30 years ago (although he started much earlier) Oh Gaby.

The lyrics will certainly read weird to you but they're non sensical and funny.


J'fais mon footing au milieu des algues et des coraux
Et j'fais mes pompes sur les restes d'un vieux cargo
J'dis bonjour, faut bien que j'me mouille

C'est ma dernière surprise partie j'mécrase le nez au hublot
J'ai mon contrat d'confiance l'encéphalo qui faut
J'ai du bol, J'en vois qui rigolent.

Oh Gaby, Gaby
Tu devrais pas m'laisser la nuit
J'peux pas dormir j'fais qu'des conneries
Oh Gaby, Gaby
Tu veux qu'j'te chante la mer
le long, le long, le long des golfes pas très clairs.

En r'gardant les résultats d'son chek-up
Un requin qui fumait plus a rallumé son clop
Ça fait frémir, faut savoir dire stop
Tu sais, tu sais c'est comm' ce typ' qui voudrait que j'me soigne
Et qu'abandonn' son cleps au mois d'août en Espagne
J'sens comme un vide, remets moi Johnny Kidd

Gaby, j't'ai déjà dit qu't'es bien plus belle que Mauricette
Qu'est bell' comme un pétard qu'attend plus qu'une allumette
Ça fait craquer, au feu les pompiers
Aujourd'hui c'est vendredi et j'voudrais bien qu'on m'aime
J'sens que j'vais finir chez Wanda et ses sirènes, et ses sirènes

Alors à quoi ça sert la frite si t'as pas les moules
Ça sert à quoi l'cochonnet si t'as pas les boules.

Re:Le nougat

This French tune has a strong mid-east Arabic influence. At least that's how it sounds to me.

Cela me fait penser à Khaled

Re: Sadisme, oui, mais démocratique!

This brings to mind a joke I heard one time.

The masochist implores: Hit me!
The sadist responds: No!

Anijo a dit…

So if the sadist is truly being democratic, the sadist will punish the masochist. The sadist and masochist need one another.

Brigitte Fontaine never had the following of Joe Dassin, Françoise Hardy and all the those popular singers.

She's always been avant-garde and can be possibly compared to Patty Smith.

She's been working with the Art Ensemble of Chicago and other anglosaxon musicians.

This song (le nougat) sounds arabic indeed although the lyrics aren't. She's been married for some 40 years with Areski Belkacem who's also a musician.

"Brigitte Fontaine became a major figure in the French underground"

Here's another song from her. Les zazous

Flocon, per your link, Brigitte Fontaine collaborated with Grace Jones.

I used to be a fan of Ms Jones back in the days. This one in particular.

Re, your link to Les Zazous. I get the following message:

The uploader has not made this video available in your country.

:( Sniff sniff

Grace Jones and Brigitte Fontaine 2 months ago in a theater next to where I live in the 11th.

I had no idea Grace Jones was still performing. Also I notice she hasn't taken one ounce of fat! How do these women do???


The uploader has not made this video available in your country.

Hmmm... You can't be left empty-handed though...

Here's another one (1969)

Anijo a dit…

I found this. Very good piece.

Brigitte Fontaine with M. I really like M. I have one of their cds.

Flocon,
Thank you for introducing me to Brigitte Fontaine. A good find!

Anijo a dit…

As for M (Mathieu Chedid) I like his music, but his hairdo is a bit much. Anyway, like this one a lot.

Anijo,

"I found this. Very good piece."

And I get this :

Cette vidéo inclut du contenu de EMI, qui l'a bloqué dans votre pays pour des raisons de droits d'auteur.

Like a tit for a tat ;-)

Mais c'est la chanson les Zazous je crois, that is the one I was linking to before...

re Matthieu Chédid hairdo, yes, singers often have to find a "gimmick" of their own in order to be remarqued like did David Bowie 40 years ago...
