Le Pop 3! It’s this collection of upbeat French pop tunes that was playing the last time I was in Hear Music in Santa Monica.
I think these are happy songs. But you know, they could be talking about stalking each other or serial killings, for all I know.
My undertanding of French is decidedly—sparse. I am fairly certain that one song (“Un Homme a la Mer”) is about a man of the sea. There’s the one that I think has something to do with something small or a bakery. One of the singers seems to be very happy about white wine. And there’s one about—I’m pretty sure—diuretics and aikido.
Those French. So original.
