Francoise Hardy Marathon

Is there anything more beautiful and mood evoking than a Francoise Hardy chanson? Yes, watching her sing!

I only wanted to post "Les temps du souvenirs" because it´s main melody was used by Barry Adamson on "Something wicked this way comes", which was later used in a key scene in Lynch´s "Lost Highway".
But then I realized I had opened a treasure box of fantastic "Scopitone" films and tv-show appearances of this knock-out beauty.
Even live appearances in Monte Carlo, where she plays for Grace Kelly can be found and I was marvelling at her voice, which always sounded like she was living inside a mobile echo-chamber.

So here is a small selection:

Mon amie la rose

Her first hit in 1962, which was actually a b-side.
Tou les garcons et les filles

Now isn´t this fantastic???
tout ce qu'on dit

Well known. Originally penned by Adriano Celentano. The fade-out is goose-bump inducing!
La maison ou j'ai grandi

Les temps du souvenirs

Very 60s pop. A bit like the Walker Brothers.
Non ce n´est pas un reve

Are you still there? Mesmerizing beauty!
