Today I’m turning the spotlight on one of my fave singers ever, Françoise Hardy. When Ms. Hardy entered the music scene in the early ’60s, she bust open the “girl singer” stereotype with aplomb. She wrote her own songs, professed an indifference to the music industry, and presented herself as a chic folk singer (minus the passivitiy). Folk trappings aside, many of her songs truly rocked — check the guitar solo on “Je Ne Suis Là Pour Personne” for proof. Three decades on, she still oozed the blasé as only the French can on her collaboration with Air (which first appeared on their “Sexy Boy” single in ’98). Cool, baby.

By the way, if anybody has an opinion about this stuff whatsoever, please please leave a comment. I’m new at this mp3 blogging thing want to know how this stuff is going over. Good or bad, let me know!

  3. Brilliant! Nothing but a huge François Hardy fan here. Cheers,
