Chansons du Soleil #9

Hors catégorie, to stick with a cycling term in these days of La Grande Boucle, is a definition that fits Brigitte Bardot more than anyone else. Thanks to Serge Gainsbourg of course, who discovered her potential as a singer too, besides her acting career. BB's really seductive way of singing and husky voice made her in fact a fille sourire avant la lettre. Leave that to Serge. The cheeky track 'Nue Au Soleil' was the last of a series of hits they recorded together and a marked their ending professional collaboration in 1970 as well as their brief affair too.
Bardot did several tracks concerning sun, summer and sea, two of them can be found down here. The third track features the sun in another context and was recorded as a duet with Sacha Distel: Stevie Wonder's You Are The Sunshine of My Life became Tu Es Le Soleil De Ma Vie.
