Heureuse si tu peux

After rather an eventful weekend - not just preparing to move house, but interrupted by a party for our friend Jim's birthday as well - we have the sad news that one of the quirkiest of the famed French "yé-yé" girls and Eurovision-winner (and a fave here at Dolores Delargo Towers) Mlle France Gall is dead.

As we struggle to wake ourselves in this darkness to get back to work, on this Tacky Music Monday, one can't help but smile at the combination of a typically cheap and garish Scopitone video and the eternal jollity of France Gall...

Have a good week, dear reader.

RIP, France Gall (born Isabelle Geneviève Marie Anne Gall, 9th October 1947 – 7th January 2018)


  1. This is the first I've heard of it. Once again, this blog provides breaking news.

    Must go turn on TV5 now.
