Francoise Hardy

Francoise Hardy - "Et Meme", 1964
Francoise Hardy - "However Much", 1965

Francoise Hardy is one great lady. She recorded her own songs and there is a sincerity and assertiveness to her voice that separates her from other French female singers of this era.

This song is possibly the best thing on earth. It's difficult to say if the French or English version is better... both are great... but there is some real punchiness to "However Much"... which is quite enjoyable. "Et Meme" has a bit more background vocal.

je t'aime Francoise Hardy! Have you heard Soleil? It's one of my favorites, a bit more dramatic.
