Chansons du Soleil #2

No need to introduce beautiful Françoise Hardy. The born Parisienne (1944) recorded so many great tracks I wouldn't even know where to start. In this one, J'ai Coupé Le Téléphone from 1969, she only needs two minutes to tell us her story. All goes in a very yéyé way, completed with some slightly psychedelic sound effects. As Françoise cuts the telephone wiring and stays in bed all day long it doesn't need a lot of imagination to see yourself laying next to her. Replace the bed (I'll try to keep things decent) by a hammock while holding a cocktail under a palm tree in the south of France and relax. This classic tune with its whistling and catchy guitar riff stays with you until sunset. (Works also with imaginary Spanish coasts.)
