Poupée de Cire, Poupée de Son

La jeune fille, France Gall, at the 1965 Eurovision contest performing her first big hit. About a dozen France Gall clips can be found on YouTube. Some are even watchable. "Poupée de cire, poupée de son" is a catchy tune, to be sure. Though when it comes to mademoiselle Gall give me "Teenie Weenie Boppie". Now there's a clip I'd love to see. I wonder if such a thing exists?

    Ron -
    I have to say this clip reminds me a lot of Barbra Streisand's TV "spectacular" around the same time
    (1964?). Gotta love a big haired
    songstress from the 60s, whether she's
    from Hoboken or Calais.

    Here at f L O G we espouse an 'all hair types' policy. That will become even more evident as future clips are posted. Glad you liked it!

    Hey, I am checking this blog using the phone and this appears to be kind of odd. Thought you'd wish to know. This is a great write-up nevertheless, did not mess that up.

    iPhone David? .wmv files aren't likely to play on that device. Can't speak for other makes. Thanks for stopping by tho!
