After Hours

France Gall. Y'a du soleil à vendre

Gosh, it's been ages since France stopped by. And we've sure missed her, haven't we? This is kind of a random clip from 1969. She's just cold walkin' around a clothing store lipsynching to this rather appealing bossa nova tune. You'll also notice that there's just one camera and just one shot. Last week, I was really impressed with Sheila holding it together for around a minute. Well, France does a really good job for more than double that. What a pro! Lipsynching is actually pretty difficult. She manages to sell the words and walk at the same time. And on top of that, this song seems to fit her rather, er, distinctive voice. When she sings it, my head doesn't want to explode. Hooray!
