(Francoise Hardy - when people ask to describe the 60s, I point to her)

It's hard for me not to think of the 60s without conjuring the image of Francoise Hardy. Aside from being the epitome of 60s style, she had a wonderful voice, wrote great songs and was everyone's idea of what French girls looked like - in short, everyone I knew (myself included) had fallen in love with her.

So she could have sung from the phonebook, it's true. But that she was a major talent who was, and still is, recording some great music, as well as writing it, puts her at icon status for whole generations.

This track, Et Meme is almost an homage to the Brill Building/girl groups sound of the early-mid 1960s.

I don't know - call me crazy, it still sounds fresh.
