Yo La La! The French Rap Podcast is 2 years old! [29 Mar 2007|01:04pm]

yolala
That's right, exactly 2 years ago I uploaded my first show about French hip-hop and rap in particular. Sound quality was horrendous, I had no idea where it would take me, but I'm glad I kept doing it and haven't missed a monthly show in 2 years' time.

A big thank you to Yo La La! listeners and a big welcome to anyone who may be interested in "le 'ip-'op".

The last two shows are about French female rappers (classics and rookies) and the next one will be about French rappers' coverage of the upcoming presidential election.

Oxmo Puccino [10 Jan 2007|04:00pm]

yolala
The latest episode of Yo La La! is an Oxmo Puccino special, featuring a bilingual track with High & Mighty's Mr Eon.

If you like sad hip-hop, or funny hip-hop or jazzy hip-hop, check it out!

Oxmo Puccino is a great lyricist and has a fine taste in French music: he did an amazing cover of Jacques Brel's "Ces gens là".

Les Aventures d'Antoine Doinel [10 Sep 2006|01:53pm]

vertigoscott
Hey everyone,

I am trying to get ahold of the theme from Francois Truffaut's Les 400 Coups.  The only place I have been able to find it is on amazon.com as an expensive compilation of soundtrack snippets from the Adventures of Antoine Doinel series.  Ive also searched by the composer, Jean Constantin, and come up empty handed.  So, if any of you out there has the soundtrack for Les 400 Coups and would be willing to share the theme/prologue music, I'd be most appreciative.

You can reply here, or email me, my adress is my lj username @ hotmail.com

Merci d'avance!

Has anyone ever heard of

"Pistons Flingueurs"?

They gave a concert here in moscow and i thought it was great=))

So do you know by any chance where i can get their tracks? it doesn't look like you can buy a cd in russia and ordering them from france doesn't sound that easy...

thanx in advance!

French hip-hop/electronica [12 Jan 2006|01:45pm]

yolala
A little promo post to mention that the last few Yo La La ! shows feature experimental French hip-hop bands making heavy use of electronic sounds, as well as the odd acoustic guitar.

If you thought it all boiled down to MC Solaar, check these out.

Mostly Jane Birkin [05 Jan 2006|05:22pm]

[ mood | hopeful ]

I was introduced to youtube.com today, and was very pleasantly surprised! While the website did have its expected share of your various people off the street getting naked and suchlike, it also contains a rather impressive classic music video selection! I was introduced to Marc Bolan (not applicable here, I know) and to the French singer Michel Polnareff, back in his earlier, adorable days; and of course one of my long-time favourites- Jane Birkin. I felt like such a stalker, but she's really too beautiful in the video for Je T'Aime Moi Non Plus... Anyway- here are some untutored, but affectionate collages from the screen clips. Awww, they were so great together.

P.S. Does anyone else like, or even perhaps know of Lio? Also the cuteness.

lyrics request. [02 Jan 2006|11:58pm]

yeuxfumeux
I have been searching everywhere for the lyrics of Jane Birkin's "Je M'appelle Jane, " but have been unsuccessful. I do not understand enough French to be able to break down each word while listening to it. I'm wondering if any of you have the lyrics. Or if you have some spare time and are fluent in French, I would appreciate it if you could listen to the song and write down the lyrics for me. Here is a link to the song: Je M'appelle Jane"

Thank you so much.
