Too Hip For Eurovision
For me, it really does join the mere handful of half-decent pop songs ever entered for the annual fete de fromage.
Sebastien Tellier - 'Divine' (2008)
Though I have fond memories of this and Auntie Barbara liking it, it's pretty cringeworthy now...
...and I still remember this despite myself (45p from Ronnie's in Torquay Market, but isn't Lynsey De Paul a proto Kate Bush here??...And check out Ronnie 'Steed' Hazlehurst!)...
....and I really only like 'Waterloo' so much because of this ('you're terrible Muriel')...
...you all know by now that it's Vicky that does it for me every time and damn it, but I'm going to re-post her.
Vicky Leandros - 'Apres Toi' (1972)
Meanwhile, with the weather outside set to be traditionally UK Bank Holiday-esque this weekend (i.e. it will piss down), I shall be pouring a defiant rosado, spinning this solid gold nu-Balearic classic and transporting myself back to Cafe Mambo in 2005, sand in my toes, salt in the air and hope in my heart.
Sebastien Tellier - 'La Ritournelle' (2005)
