After Hours

Claire Lepage. Bam bam bam

Never heard of Claire? Me neither. Apparently, she's Canadian. I don't hear a profound and crazy French-Canadian accent, but I'm not a French-speaker. This tune was her biggest hit, which was followed up by "Bang bang," a French-language version of "Bang Bang (My Baby Shot Me Down)." Believe it or not, Cher did the original version way back in the mid-sixties. This was when she could easily venture into the outside world without frightening children. OK, so we have "Bam bam bam" and "Bang bang." Can you detect a trend? Speaking of trends, notice how that one prominent go-go dancer is wearing what appears to be a yard waste bag? Yeah, back in the sixties people thought that looked cool. Still, you have to admire her enthusiasm. I hope she got paid a lot for dancing on that pedestal.
