There can never be enough Javanaise-covers. More cool versions here. Tess is here.

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

    Tess’s ‘La Javanaise’ is great with the bare accompaniment.

    Two Juliette Gréco filmed versions, from 1991 and 2013, featured on Filles Sourires on 1 April last – see

    I like two Tess et les Moutons Magnifiques covers on Youtube –
    ‘Je veux’ (Zaz)
    ‘Sous le ciel de Paris’ (Juliette Gréco)

    By the way, at least for me, the Soundcloud link offered on this page to Tess’s ‘Javanaise’ works, but the link to the ‘more versions’ on Soundcloud doesn’t seem to.

    A big thumbs up to Mlle. van der Zwet and her flock. Great vocals complemented by the stripped back acoustics. Tess’ SoundCloud page is most definitely worth a listen – thx for that link!
