RE-PRESS: CD ORIGINALLY RELEASED IN 2012
The definitive collection of Gallic girl France Gall’s upbeat, irresistible girl pop, recorded for Phillips 1963-1968.

Including all the songs Serge Gainsbourg composed for France Gall, bringing them together for the first time outside France.

France Gall won the 1965 Eurovision Song Contest with ‘Poupée De Cire Poupée De Son’, written specially for her by the legendary cultural icon Serge Gainsbourg. She was the first pop singer he’d written for.

As well as satirising Swinging London on ‘Made In France’, Gall brought her naive magic to subversive Gainsbourg songs like ‘Teenie Weenie Boppie’ (about LSD) and ‘Les Sucettes’ (a barely cloaked metaphor for a sex act – she had no idea what the song was about).

Also unique to this release is the first chance to hear her shelved take of Gainsbourg’s ‘Bloody Jack outside France, and the first-ever reissue of her Japanese-language version of Poupée De Cire Poupée De Son.
