greatest. song. ever.

To understand just why the song below is now my favourite thing in Flight of the Conchords, and possibly one of my favourite things ever, bear in mind the following facts:

1. I really love French pop/ye-ye music, so much so that I once co-organised a club night devoted to it (called Bon Bon!).

2. I have never studied French, not even at secondary school, and my French is limited to the likes of, well, "bonjour!" "ca va?, "pain au chocolat" and of course "je ne comprend pas".

Enjoy...

I first heard about them on pajiba.com, but the got a slightly iffy review. I think they felt they were too self-conciously indie? Or something. So I put off checking them out till you put them on your lj. Foolish, foolish girl that I am, they are hilarious.

I quite like French pop music, but some of it can be whimsical in a way that I find vaguely disturbing. Do you know Mathieu Chedid aka M? The man creeps me out for some reason.

I've never heard him, but I do know what you mean about the strain of whimsy. I just can't resist the sound of ye-ye girls, though!

I'm glad to make another Conchords convert. They really are the funniest thing I've encountered in ages, even though all the songs are stuck in my hand and I find myself humming them in the office...

ooh this will interest you!

Smart Bitches Trashy Books (brilliant website btw, snarky reviews of romance novels, and other things. The only romance I'll read is Georgette Heyer, but it's funny enough for me to visit periodically to see what they're doing)

Anyhoo, they just posted a review of Dear Sister! As is the SVH, not that I need to tell you that *nods in a way that implies that SVH kinship needs no words*

No specific link to it, but should be the first post
