First Lady, First Class,
This review is from: Comme si de rien n'était (Audio CD)
Has hardly been off my player since I bought it.
A journalist commenting on her recent UK television appearance with Jools Holland said a beautiful woman in a Chanel trouser suit could recite a telephone directory in French and still sound good. But these lyrics are not from a directory. Sometimes childlike, sometimes mature, they are delivered in a breathy voice that at times can sound diffident, but that only adds to its charm.
I speak reasonable French so can understand most of the lyrics, though I did have to look up "Tu es ma came" (something like "you are my drug") but I think even non-francophones would enjoy this collection's ambience, intimate delivery and pared down accompaniment.
