If Paradis is Half as Nice

It's mid week and we are hurtling  rapidly towards mid February so the situation clearly calls for some lightweight French pop.
And who better to provide this than Vanessa Paradis, child star, chanteuse, actress and significant other of both Lenny Kravitz and Johnny Depp over the years.
Two tracks from her 1988 debut album M&J which you will either find formidable, merde or peut-etre  comme-ci  comme-ca depending on your taste.
Altogether now

Joe le taxi
Y va pas partout
Y marche pas au soda
Son saxo jaune
Connaît toutes les rues par cœur

In a similar vein to Camper vans I often shout this out when looking for a cab

Vanessa Paradis - Mosquito

  1. Has our mutual friend Pete taken over here? Debbie Gibson tomorrow? Cathy Dennis? Bangles?

  2. I haven't heard it for many years, but I used to really like her self-titled third LP, written and produced by Lenny K. Wonder what it sounds like now?
