La tête à l’envers by 60’s ye-ye legend Gillian Hills is labeled ‘non-seasonal’, ’cause it’s not about Christmas. But the giggly lyrics are set to Jingle Bell Rock, therefore it IS a seasonal track in my book. And on dark days like this, it’s always a pleasure to hear and watch the bubbly blonde, innit?

Gillian Hills – La tete a l’envers

French girls, singing. No, sighing. Making me sigh. Ah.

    Circa 1960, Gillian Hills starred in a wonderfully naughty ‘ teenage-exploitation ‘ film titled ‘ Beat Girl ‘ ( or ‘ Wild For Kicks ‘ ) wherein her character visits a striptease nightclub owned & run by a sleazy character played by Christopher Lee ( when he sees Hills’ character walk in, he slyly grins & declares : ” Someone ‘down there’ must like me ! ” ). She also hangs out at a coffee-house with a clique of beatnicks ( particularly wonderful was Shirley Anne Field : ” You leave me ‘over and out’.” ). It’s not a masterpiece, but it has delighted me for 50 years ! I lost track of Hills’ film career ( & music ) after Blow-Up.
