Sur les elles de Gainsbourg


Canadian actor Stephane Lucas recorded an album with Gainsbourg covers, with the help of Julie Salvador, Patsy Gallant, Melanie Renaud and writer Nelly Arcan (pictured), who's first novel was called Putain. It's a mixed bag, with gentle versions and wild interpretations. The idea to have two girls sing Je t'aime has been done before, and better, but the effect never fails. Lucas did a nice mix of best-known songs like La Chanson de Prevert and L'Anamour, but the best version is of the fairly unknown song Un petit garçon nommé Charlie Brown.

In other news: Liv Tyler sings! No, she sighs! Hear here.
