April March

Laisse tomber les filles by April March.

‘Laisse tomber les filles‘” is a French song composed by Serge Gainsbourg and performed by France Gall in 1964. April March recorded two covers of the song in 1995: one with the original French lyrics, and another, “Chick Habit,” with English lyrics written by March.”

Quentin Tarantino made me aware of the tune (Death Proof, 2007 … a mediocre film at best), and although many people like the original version better, this one somehow wriggled its way into my system and stayed there. It’s not my usual fare, but this track I’ve heard a million times.

P.S.: Back to regular programming after a week of viruses.
