Product Description

This album is the definitive collection of Gallic girl France Gall s upbeat, irresistible girl pop, recorded for Phillips 1963-1968. She won the 1965 Eurovision Song Contest with Poupée De Cire Poupée De Son, written specially for her by the legendary cultural icon Serge Gainsbourg. She was the first pop singer he d written for. Made in France: France Gall s Baby Pop includes all the songs Gainsbourg composed for France Gall, bringing them together for the first time outside France. It s also the first time Poupée De Cire Poupée De Son has been released in the English-speaking world since the 60s. As well as satirising Swinging London on Made in France Gall brought her naive magic to subversive Gainsbourg songs like Teenie Weenie Boppie (about LSD) and Les Sucettes (a barely cloaked metaphor for a sex act she had no idea what the song was about). Also unique are the first chance to hear her shelved take of Gainsbourg's Bloody Jack outside France, and the first-ever reissue of her Japanese-language version of Poupée De Cire Poupée De Son.

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Featuring 22 tracks recorded between 1963 and 1968, this is the ultimate introduction to the ultimate Yé-Yé singer with the ultimate Yé-Yé sound. This really is pop music of the highest order and it is truly irresistible. The over the top and sometimes complex musical arrangements are breathtaking at times and they compliment Gall's lush girly vocals perfectly. Sexy yet deliberately naïve; the pace is relentless and the quality never falters.

Exactly half of the songs here were composed by Serge Gainsbourg, including the infamous 'Les Sucettes' (about a girl who liked aniseed-flavoured lollipops as far as Gall was concerned) and Gall's version of 'Bloody Jack' (which is a lot smoother sounding than Bardot's version). The album closes with Gall singing 'Poupee De Cire Poupee De Son' in Japanese.

Clocking in at 55 minutes and housed in a jewel case, the booklet features brief notes (in English) and photos of some of the original record sleeves.

In the 1960s between the ages of 16 and 21 France Gall recorded some of the sunniest and most joyful bubblegum pop in the world. It's all here on this 2012 compilation of those songs. Words can't describe how fresh and upbeat this music still sounds. I'm so happy I took a chance and got this great CD.

It's easy to dismiss Yé-Yé music, but it'll have you feeling happy in no time at all, perhaps even have you dancing around. This compilation (55.43 mins) has great sound quality, it comes with a good 10 page colour booklet that has various pics of Ep covers etc. The music on the whole is very well crafted, written (half are written by the great Serge Gainsbourg) most of the songs have great melodies - its a real treat and a pleasure to listen to this cd. This is joyous, happy and fizzy pop. Highly recommended - let your self go, let the happiness wash over you.
