    Erik Satie could pop out pop songs when he wanted to.

    I played this one a million times in dance bands back in the day. And I'll never pass up a chance to hear Laura Fygi.

    One of the best scenes from my favorite movie.

    How were my comments on Serge Gainsbourg personal or inappropriate?
    Short-term thinkers are rewarded with reelection, while those who dare to take seriously our responsibility to future generations commonly find themselves out of office.

    Your comments were a reply to a post which was deleted after moderator discussion. In such cases we usually delete all replies that reference the post as the context has been lost.

    It was my posts (and replies) that were the problem, Star, and you kind of got caught in the crossfire as the deletion of my posts crossed into yours. Just repost the Gainsbourg material or better yet start a dedicated thread. I'm going to do one on Yé-yé that should be fairly entertaining as it has the perfect combination of melody, rhythm, and fabulous looking French babes.

    If it doesn't appear here, check out the SHF as they've lifted my temp ban after successfully appealing my being rather rudely asked to take a 14 day "vacation" for using the phrase "jerks with smirks" to describe my fellow forum members - … repeatedly... despite being asked to stop... repeatedly... to no avail.

    Strangely compelling video with a mesmerizing tune that would be dreadful in English but brilliant in French.

    Translation of some of the comments which appear below the video -

    "ame torturée , mais tellement vrai" - Tortured soul, but so true...(truthful)

    "serge reviens tu nous manques une voix c'est eteinte personne pour te remplacer " -
    Serge, come back, a voice is lost (turned off), with no one to replace you

    "Tellement vrai. A tout jamais Serge...A tout à l’heure" - So true, forever Serge, see you later...

    "Serge, sérieusement... Lavez votre visage, peignez vos cheveux, et changez vos vêtements-vous êtes un désordre complet!"
    - Serge, seriously... Wash your face, comb your hair, and change your clothes-you are a complete mess! ( I might have written that last one).
