nouvelle vougue

Nouvelle Vague is the name used by French producers Marc Collin and Olivier Libaux for their series of albums which cover pop songs in bossa nova/easy listening style. The pair gathered together French and Brazilian female vocalists to sing cover versions of 'classic' pop songs, including Joy Division's "Love Will Tear Us Apart" and "Teenage Kicks" by The Undertones.-amazon
I used to listen to Love Will Tear Us Apart and The Guns of Brixton, nonstop. Although, I think its the notion that these artists give such classic pop songs a romantic flare that you can't find, anywhere else. Just recently I fell in love with DANCE WITH ME, and it made me want to find more of their songs to listen too.
Dream of better lives the kind which never hate
Dropped in the state of imaginary grace
I made a pilgrimage to save this humans race
Yes I did
What I’m comprehending a race that long gone bye-I will melt with you

So this is the month of romance. Who knows this just might be what you need to add to your playlist!

“give me the words
give me the words
that tell me nothing
give me the words
that tell me everything”-in a manner of speaking
