I had not heard of this French singer. Apparently Serge Gainsboug, he of Je t'aime fame, persuaded her to record a composition of his entitled Les Sucettes, ( The Lollipops). The song was as laden with double entendres as a Frankie Howard monologue, of which she apparently understood sans.

Go to the top of the class, or as a “prof” would probably say, something along the lines of : “ tres bien, felicitations” .:ok:

Hot stuff in her time, when France was full of Bardot-esque looking women.

Although the last time I saw her on TV, last year, I was left wondering whether she was trying to look like Mdm Macron or whether Mdm Macron was trying to look like her....

Frau H always says that it's the hair - apparently it can make ladies' look 10 years older or 10 years younger depending on the style, colour, etc, and if we were to see most of the famous ladies ' of an age ' with wet hair, straight out of the shower, they'd all look considerably older than we are used to seeing them.

France Gall would certainly fit into that category - as would Mdm Macron.

Around 1976 was tuning around on long wave radio (remember that?) and stumbled across a French station playing France Gal's "Comment Lui Dire". Very catchy tune and I remember it to this day.
