After Hours

Ginette Ravel & Jean-Pierre Ferland. Les Immortelles

Here's something from 1962 Quebec. It's certainly sappy, but it's also just a tiny bit touching - just a couple of crazy kids singing a love song on a TV show. They actually do it quite well. When you consider how poorly today's popstars sing, this performance seems even better. It's a shame they don't have better material, but French Canada's better songwriters were probably occupied elsewhere when this tune was written.
