    My new favourite, Mareva Galanter (Miss France '99!), could also be worth a shot; wonderful sixties yé-yé hits very cleverly updated into noughties electro-pop:
    Pourquoi Pas Moi www.youtube.com/watch?v=JdgBTAYV7Bg
    Laisse Tomber Les Filles www.youtube.com/watch?v=8agZ0oQKw8g

    All the videos are shot in genuine sixties "Scopitone" style, the legendary video jukeboxes in the hippest French cafés at the time.

    Name of album: Ukuyéyé -- because the whole thing's unexplicably but tastefully spiced with actual ukulele playing... Mareva must be bonkers!

  3. I never knew that Nathalie Cardone released a more 'English' version of her debut album, I will now be haunted of course until I get a copy of it, @nnnumb did you know about this version?

  4. There's a song called Je Ne Sais Pas Pourquoi by an artist called Kylie Minogue that's really quite good. She raps too.

  5. No. I haven't seen that before. I would like a copy though.

    It'll make a change from my current obsession of buying Speak and Spell cassettes.

  6. Four seasons of Star Academy have been put on Youtube. I think the rest will be uploaded later.
