I love France, in fact I leave for Paris next week. I look forward to the food, the museums, the shopping but I do not look forward to French pop music. It really sucks. I can't understand it, they do everything else with such panache. Well maybe not everything, they do have that strange crush on Jerry Lewis.

YouTube seems to have killed Bibi's videos! "Removed by user" it says, but she hasn't herself. Sacre bleu!

Have you ever heard poet Rod Mckuen's translation/rendition of Ne me quitte pas? It's really quite wonderful in spite of a voice like sandpaper.
