"Yé-Yé Girls of 60s French Pop is extremely easy on the eyes. Part coffee-table book, part-painstaking miscellany of all things yé-yé, it doesn't want for tasteful images of the chic and photogenic young women whose clear complexions were lent extra radiance by the colour-saturation idiosyncrasies of 1960s camera film... If you really want to learn about the lives and music of yé-yé's leading and lesser-known lights, you won't find a more informative English-language account than this one." --The National

Ye-ye is a delightful style of pop music featuring young female
singers that influenced France, Quebec and other European countries with its
"camp" style throughout the 1960s.
This collection by pop music expert Jean-Emmanuel Deluxe includes many
interviews with the original singers and producers, and hundreds of visual
examples of record covers, magazines, and a teenaged fan's scrapbook from
This book includes the famous Ye-Ye practitioners Sylvie Vartan, France Gall, Francoise Hardy, Chantal Goya, Brigitte Bardot, Jane Birkin and dozens of others, including perverse Serge Gainsbourg.
Ye-Ye had secondary explosions in the 1970s and 1990s in Japan and Europe
through the likes of Lio (who provides this book's foreword), and in the
United States through singers like April March, whose Ye-Ye number "Chick
Habit" was heard in the Quentin Tarantino film Death Proof. Interest in Ye-Ye
exploded again when Megan Draper sang the Ye-Ye number "Zou Bisou Bisou,"
originally made famous by Gillian Hills, in the 5th season of Mad Men.
Be prepared to be immersed in this beloved but cruelly neglected pop
