Style muse: France Gall

Yes my love affair with French Sixties singers continues. I love France Gall’s innocent charm – although her song Les sucettes (Lollipops) is anything but subtle, hardly a surpirse since it’s by Serge Gainsbourg.



Annie aime les sucettes

Annie likes lollipops
Les sucettes à l’anis
Lollipops of anise
Les sucettes à l’anis
Lollipops of anise
D’Annie
Of Annie
Donnent à ses baisers
Give her kisses
Un goût ani-
A taste of ani-
Sé lorsque le sucre d’orge
Seed, when the barley sugar
Parfumé à l’anis
Perfumed with aniseed
Coule dans la gorge d’Annie
Slides down Annies throat
Elle est au paradis
She is in paradise

  1. Thank you for choosing France Gall!
    Even later, during the eighties she still had a good look.

  2. Aah, that song is just brilliant, in a very smutty way. Fab.

  3. That picture with the smoke is super hot.

  4. I love her! I did one of my first ever blog posts about her haha

  5. Oooh had nearly forgotten France Gall – Lena, if you have any of her stuff (I’ve only got things on mixtapes…) we could do a french singers vs. charleston swap perhaps? x

    • Sadly, I’ve not got anything by her – it’s on top of my download list though so give me a few weeks and we’re on!
