Françoise Hardy - Comment Te Dire Adieu, 1968

Cover illustration made by Jean Paul Goude

Credits in this album are very interesting, because she dare with songs composed by Gainsbourg (L'anamour), Leonard Cohen (Suzanne), Brassens (I'l N'y a Pas D'amour Heureux) or Antonio Carlos Jobim (La Mésange). Although, the most important song is Comment Te Dire Adieu?, writed by Gainsbourg too, a nostalgic song about a farewell, but with happy poppy rhythm. Some songs are arrenged by great John Cameron.
Sweet and warm as she only can be.

Also, I added 2 bonus tracks, one sung with Jane Birkin and another with Air (French Band) from 1998. Salut!

1, Comment Te Dire Adieu?
2, Où Va La Chance?

3, L'anamour

4, Suzanne

5, I'l N'y a Pas D'amour Heureux

6, La Mésange

7, Parlez-moi De Lui

8, À Quoi Ça Sert?
9, Il Vaut Mieux Une Petite Maison Dans La Main Qu'un Grand Château Dans Les Nuages

10, La Rue Des Coeurs Perdus

11, Étonnez-moi, Benoît..!

12, La Mer, Les Étoiles Et Le Vent

13, Comment Lui Dire Adieu (avec Jane Birkin)

Très Jolie!

OST : Bilitis (by Francis Lai, 1977)

In 1895 the belgian writer Pierre Louÿs publishes the translation of the work of the Greek poet Bilitis, pupil of Sappho. The book had success for its erotic content; rather, lesbian content. In fact, the poetries were written by the same Louÿs, who invented the character of Bilitis and himself as a translator. In 1955 was formed in San Francisco the first lesbian organizations in USA called itself Daughters of Bilitis. Later, in 1977, one of the most commercially successful and controversial photographers in the world, David Hamilton, made a softcore film called Bilitis. Francis Lai composed its film score and won the César award of French Academy of Cinema as the Best Soundtrack Writer of the year.

It's a charming delight.

She and she!
