audio-le-nouvel-album-de-la-grande-sophie-en-ecoute-en-avant-premiere-7081Sexy Boy by Air, covered by La Grande Sophie plus strings. Ooh la la, there’s an intented pun. This cover’s from a just released EP by LGS, featuring a couple of her own songs with said string section, plus this cover. Not the first time Sexy Boy’s been redone. Apart from the almost obligatory Top 40 coverband variations (Vitamin String Quartet et al), there are a few unusual, yet good covers. A guitaristic one by Franz Ferdinand, one by youth choir Scala and an offbeat Bertrand Burgalat-reprise.

Bertrand Burgalat – Sexy Boy

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

    Unmistakable LGS sound and a pretty decent stripped back to basics cover. I enviously note that the new album “La place du fantôme” has been released – although “pas disponible” here in the States. Off to France and the Swiss Romand this summer, so this will join my list of discs to buy in FNAC!
