Bridget Bardot: The Best of Bardot — DRG CD-8486, 47:02 ****:

France’s pop princess of the ’60’s and ’70’s has just released a
greatest-ish hits album. The Best of Bardot, pop songs sung by Bridget
Bardot, is as full of enough caffeine to fuel a Lorrina
factory!   The Stereolab of the ’60’s, Bardot turns on
decades of pop listeners alike. Not just a pretty face, she’s got a
pretty voice that goes along with that face. [Gee, didn’t notice the
body?..Ed…and don’t miss Nue au Soleil! — look it up at Google
languages]

“Bonnie and Clyde”, accompanied by Serge Gainsbourg, is my favorite
track on the album. The acoustic guitar resembles Oasis, and really
could be a top hit on today’s radio. As quirky as this album may be,
the songs really have passed the test of time. Most of the tracks sound
very exotic, if I would have only studied a little harder in French
class I might be able to understand a word or two.

Songs on the album include: L’Appareil A Sous, La Madrague, Moi Je
Joue, Invitango, Ca Pourrait Changer, Ne Me Laisse Pas L’Aimer, Maria
Ninguem, Comic Strip – with / with  Serge Gainsbourg, Ciel De Lit,
Bonnie And Clyde- with / with  Serge Gainsbourg, Bubble Gum, Le
Soleil, Harley Davidson, Contact, Oh! Qu’il Est Vilain, Le Diable Est
Anglais, Nue Au Soleil, Tu Veux Ou Tu Veux Pas, Je T’Aime…Moi Non
Plus – with / with  Serge Gainsbourg.
