For those jaded souls who aren't already shocked and awed about my recent listening choices, here's another. I've recently been listening to the music of the French pop star, Alizée. Despite its sometimes annoying tendency to double as dance music, europop is fun to listen to because it's patently harmless, upbeat, and easy on the ears.

Alizée arrived on the scene three years ago and easily has a better voice than any Britney Spears clone the US recording industry could produce. Plus, the lyrics of her songs have a poetic, almost campy, flavour to them which reminds me a lot of music from the 80s.

I've included a sample clip and lyrics from the song, À Contre Courant, in case you want to try something new. If you like what you hear, let me know and I can recommend some other good songs. If you hate it, post a memorable comment on today's news post and get a laugh out of it.

À Contre Courant (MP3, 888KB)

Rien d'ordinaire
Rien que du bon temps
Tête à l'envers...
Pas trop longtemps.
Quand tu es sur terre
Mets-moi au courant
Que je devine...
Les intentions.
On s'électrise :
Tension maximale
Les corps-circuits...
De deux amants
On s'illumine
Lumière animale
L'école de l'électro-aimant.

Retrouver le sens
De la vie, je pense
Passe par l'ennui
Quand toi, tu es parti.
Retrouver les sens
Moments qui s'insolencent
Des défilés de doigts,
De mon envie de toi.
Quand le courant passe, aussi la menace
Du temps qui se barre, du temps qui nous sépare
Et le courant passe, j'ai en moi l'audace
Du champ magnétique, et ça c'est magnifique!
