American folk(sy) artist Kate Bollinger covered this classic, to promote her European tour. “I love Jacques Dutronc and wanted to sing this song for a while,” says Bollinger. “The band sounds so classic and sophisticated, but the lyrics are silly. Normally I like for cover songs to stray far from the original, but I felt differently here. I wanted to stay pretty true to the Jacques version.” Didn’t I tell you earlier that Jacques’ songs are being re-discovered all the time? Yes I did.
