Sat watching TV the other night and we were really strapped for something good to watch. Then we noticed ‘The Other Guys’ was showing and it wasn’t too old plus it was a comedy. So we thought lets give it a shot.
Have to be honest I really didn’t think it was that funny, but what I did like was some of the featured music and the one that really got my attention was Ooh La La by Goldfrapp. Soon as I heard it I remembered it and I love it. Definitely a bit quirky and different from the normal run of the mill pop/disco music and it soon had me sitting up to pay attention.
Ooh La La was released back in 2005 as the lead single to the album Supernature and ‘Yay’ Goldfrapp are a British band, so there is a sort of ‘Top of the Pops’ feel to the track, but not in a bad Jimmy Saville way but in a very good and positive British TV and music way.

I 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.
