Honor Blackman

Got a request for this Gainsbourg-cover by Honor Blackman, and then I realised I've never posted it on FS. So here goes: miss Pussy Galore sings an English version of Serge's La Javanaise. It's from her very rare album Everyting I've Got (pictured: Japanese re-issue), that also features her duet with Patrick McNee. I've never heard the full album, and I wonder if C'est Drôle is a French song, or just has a French title. Enlighten me, please. Better: send me a copy of the whole album! Got it, thanks Franss!

Honor Blackman - Men will deceive you

See Serge sing La Javanaise here.
UPDATE: here's C'est Drôle by Honor, and yes, it's completely in French. Darling, Je vous aime beaucoup is half French/half English.

  1. hey guuz:

    the duet with mcnee isn't on the album, neither on the original British nor on the US edition of the LP. i've got both and will ask a friend to rip it for you, though that might take a bit.

    as always,
