My New Favourite Blog

I love French culture. I love French music. I especially love French sixties music. Vidéo Nostalgie serves up classic music videos from this era that I am too young to have seen at the time and too far away from France to be able to see today on Télé Mélody.

Take this clip, Poupée de cire, poupée de son, for example:

Written by Serge Gainsbourg, one of the greatest pop geniuses ever, and perfromed by France Gall, it won the 1965 Eurovision Song Competition. Isn't it wonderful? It must surely be one of the best pure pop songs of all time and has always been a favourite of mine. Vidéo Nostalgie is simply
chock-full of gems like this. Highly recommended!
