I believe the good folks call this Feel Good Friday.

I picked up a CD compilation by Putumayo Records called French Cafe the other day. Getting in touch with my French heritage, ya know. Some artists I was already familiar with: Serge Gainsbourg, Jane Birkin, Brigitte Bardot. Others, not so much. Among the not so much is a fellow by the name of Mathieu Boogaerts. His track, "Ondule," hardly seems to exist, but is a delight everytime I hear it. It's barely a light breeze on a sunny afternoon. Maybe we can call Matthieu Boogaerts "the Jack Johnson of France." I listen to "Ondule" and imagine myself enjoying a leisurely stroll on the Champs-Elysees. It's beautiful. It's Friday and I feel good.


Of course, the French do love their nudity. Click for the same artist singing "Silliguri."

Other Feel Good Friday players include: GingerSnaps, Squirrel Queen, Heartbreaktown, Newscoma, Kat Coble, LeBlanc (sounds like a good French name), Sharon Cobb, Subtle Bluntness, Jagadiah, and Holly.

Good folks, all of them.

The French love their music! Via la France!'Even the first Lady of France, Carla Bruni has a #1 record out!
Can you imagine Laura Bush doing that? Yikes!
Thanks for the cool video!

Amusant. That second one was bizarre, but I liked it.
