Quand Tu Es La - Sylvie Vartan

Bulgarian bombshell Sylvie Vartan covers the Wayne Fontana & The Mindbenders
1963 classic with a groovy mod beat. Vartan doesn't get as much credit
as her singing peers Petula Clark, Francoise Hardy, or even Briggitte
Bardot, but I've always found her albums to be rather enjoyable. Sylvie
also deserves pioneering props for being the first female French
singer to incorporate choreographed dancing into her performances. Until
she burst onto the scene it was all lounge chairs and long cigarettes.
