Gigolo A Go Go - Episode 7


Is there anything sexier than French Pop?  Mini-Skirts and Go-Go Boots.  Imagine yourself back in the 60's, jet setting with a Tom Collins in your hand.  Smiling at the flight attendants in those fabulous uniforms.  Aaaah.  What happened?  Damn hippies.

This mix takes a look at fifty years of French Pop.  Of course, you will find later grooves from Jane Birkin and Serge Gainsbourg - along with a classic by Bridgette Bardot - but you will also find newer bands like La Femme, Stereolab, and The Limiñanas, the Bryan Ferry-esque stylings of Françios Veléry, the 70's pronto-punk of Plastic Bertrand, and a slew of other goodies.

Hope you dig it.

  1. This mix was c’est magnifique! The world may not have been completely ruined by “those damn hippies”, but the bon vivant attitude of jet setting with a Tom Collins has definitely been altered past a recognizable form. Thank goodness for the unalterable enjoyment that comes from drifting within your mind while listening to good music.

    Thanks to you 40 Watt for mixing the juices of solid sounds.

    1. Thanks JB. Glad you liked the mix. Regarding the hippies, I can let my freak flag fly with the best of them, but there is nothing sexier than '60s French Pop. Nothing.
