Might be in the eye of the beholder, but more and more French girls seem to turn goth. Canadian singer Anik Jean got the biggest bat of ‘m all, The Cure’s Robert Smith. On Anik’s self-titled new album they’re redoing Believe, a song Smith sang on Earl Slick’s album Zig Zag. Anik added French lyrics (and vocals, obviously) but I doubt Robbie re-sang his part, to me it sounds more like he was sampled. Anyhoo, not a song for eternity but a nice diversion nonetheless.
