After Hours

France Gall. Bebé requin

France is back and she's singing about baby sharks! Plus, she's got dancers. If you'll remember her last outing with dancers, it didn't go so good. Well, that was "Baby pop" from 1965 and this is "Bebé requin." The difference between them is two years. The dancers in this all look like particularly inept porn stars, but at least they're not weird and creepy. Much was learned between 1965 and 1967. France is still devastatingly cute (she kind of looks eerily like Britney Spears or vice-versa, no?) and the song is much better. As always, she can't sing very well, but the way the song is written, it doesn't really matter. Once again, this is a real pop gem that hits all its marks for appeal. Sorry about the video cutting off abruptly. I blame the YouTubes.

If you'd like to see another version, take a look at this. It won't embed, so enjoy the link. It's very Blow Up - except not quite as boring.
