The Last Dance – Indila

Posted on March 17, 2014

IndilaI thought it was high time I put a French song on this blog as a main feature and that I might as well make it a good one. Did take me a while to track down the title though, because they haven’t exactly been forthcoming on French radio with respect to announcing the singer or song title. But I liked this song so much that I actually turned the music up loud and listened carefully to get the French words so I had a chance of searching for it on Youtube. So it goes to show, it’s not only English language tracks that can grab your attention, sometimes it’s the sound of the music that pulls you in. Although I suppose classical music has been proving that fact for years.

I actually found this track in the end by typing in ‘danse danse danse french song’. Not that you need that now, because if you are reading this you have already found it :-)

So who is Indila, well her real name is Adila Sedraia and she is a French R&B singer and song writer. She is not really that well known outside of the French speaking countries, but Greece took this particular track to heart and she was number 1 there earlier this year. Dernière Danse, to give it its correct French title, is the first track on her Mini World album. But don’t be fooled by some of the English titles, all these tracks are in French, which I quite like, but I guess is not going to be everyone’s cup of tea.

Dear Darlin – Olly Murs Featuring Alizee

Posted on December 14, 2013

Olly Murs seems to have gone from strength to strength in recent times. His release ‘Dear Darlin’ featuring Alizee has to be one of my favourite tracks from him. I suppose because Alizee is French and very sexy, the track that gets played most on French radio is of course the version with Alizee making a contribution.

All I can say is good choice, only shame is that I searched high and low for a decent video of the track with them both in it and couldn’t really find one. So you are going to have to settle for this one that has been produced with still shots and the lyrics, not such a disaster for everyone I am sure. Plus with the bonus video of Alizee doing a very nice French number in a typically cheesy French style, I am sure you will forgive me. But in case you really do want to see Olly on film performing you can do that here http://youtu.be/m20BTdy9FGI.

Just remember you are missing out on hearing the lovely Alizee singing in her lyrical French language, which really is a very classy addition to the track, French is the language of love course and very beautiful to listen to. Dear Darlin is the final track on the album Right Place, Right Time (US Version) which really is a fabulous album and will I am sure make you an Olly Murs fan if you aren’t already.
