After Hours

Marie LaforĂȘt. Mon amour, mon ami

There's not too much to this clip; just Marie cold singin' into the camera. When she's done, the audience applauds wildly for some reason. I kind of don't like the arrangement of this tune. The song itself is OK; it's just that the bouncy polka-like beat doesn't work very well. Plus, that weird organ in the foreground doesn't help things. Yes, the tune is repetitive, but that's not necessarily a bad thing. A good arranger would know how to deal with that, maybe adding little interludes between verses or something. Anyhow, that's the original. The 8 Women version is sung by the slightly-beady-eyed, fairly-hot Virginie Ledoyen. Ludivine Sagnier accompanies:

I like this arrangement a lot more, and Virginie does a good job with her tiny little voice.
