7 heures du matin

This is great fun - the highly under-rated Tahiti 80 covering the great Jacqueline Taeb song '7 heures du matin' - the genre-defining ye ye song.

and then there's the slightly unambitious cover by the gorgeous Mareva Galanter (left), former Miss France, who was born in Tahiti. See it all fits!

Cheap video idea - put pretty girl in a tree and shoot...

and this is the original:

Hi there, just thought I'd pop round a few blogs and say hello. "hello". I dont go for FRench Pop Music much I must admit though did have a soft spot for Francoise Hardy in my teens. The African scene in france seems to have more energy to it and all the ethnic/world music that springs from there generally. Anyway, good to see you covering bases that nobody else does.
