Anyone that's seen Moonrise Kingdom can appreciate the charm and appeal of 60's French pop music.  I've known that I've been enamored with this type of music for a while now, but it wasn't until very recently that I felt the need to share this admiration with the world here on If I Haver.  I was in my friend Hannah's car the other night and she was all, "Do you like 60's French pop?!" while popping in a France Gall CD.  At that very moment I realized that, "Yes. YES I DO!!!"  This week's ERMAHGERD! is dedicated to the wonderful, the somewhat confusing (because of the language barrier.. despite my high school French knowledge) genre of 60's French pop music.

The first 60's French pop song that I fell for was "Laisse Tomber Les Filles" performed by Miss France Gall.  Here she is looking both sweet and sassy.. a difficult combination to achieve.

France Gall

Haven't heard "Laisse Tomber Les Filles"?!  Give it a listen!  You won't regret it.

You Moonrise Kingdom fans will know this one.  I love this song so much.  Also, how awesome is this mock title sequence by Devon Hosford?!

I just recently heard about Tiny Yong, a Cambodian-born singer that moved to France as a teenager and took over the French pop charts.  Who couldn't love a singer named Tiny?!  It's just so cute!


Oh, and..

Until next week.. Oรน est ma salade?!
