Eine französische Prinzessin: France Gall

Parisian Pop Princess France Gall would regularly record in Germany from 1966 to 1972, in particular with the composer and orchestrator Werner Müller. She had a successful German career with songs by Horst Buchholz and Giorgio Moroder. For all her German success, many Germans would believe for a long time that Gall was one of their own.

Here are some of my favorites...


France Gall - Hippie Hippie
(feat. on the Radioblog)
France Gall - Die schönste Musik die es gibt (Music To Watch Girls By)
France Gall - Ein Bisschen Goethe, Ein Bisschen Bonaparte
France Gall - I like Mozart

Plus: Her German version of Poupée de cire, poupée de son here

Fine...In the 60s Germany was in French Pop fever and they liked the french yey-yeh-singers..there are also a lot of german sung chansons by Françoise Hardy (by the way:she speaks very well german!)...for example "Peter And Lou" which is the german version of her fantastic "Tous les garçons et les filles" (with worse lyrics). check out...that was my first connection with french music...as a young child....
