5 By Francoise Hardy – Past Daily Weekend Soundbooth
Continuing our suspension of regular posts this weekend (at least for today, Saturday), here are 5 songs by the legendary Francoise Hardy – one of the most recognizable and influential voices in French Pop music.
A phenomenal career which is continuing, even after some 50 years – Francoise Hardy is more than a legend, she is an institution and one of the most enduring singer-songwriters of a generation.
And as a sample of just a small portion of her work, here are 5 tracks recorded between 1962 and 1971:
1. Je Veux qu’ll revienne
2. Rendez Vous D’Autonme
3. Le Temps Des Souvenirs
4. La Maison
5. Bati Mon Nid
If you’re familiar with her work, you need no introduction – if you’re hearing her tonight for the first time, I would urge you to search out her vast catalog of highly evocative and memorable music.
Here’s a taste to get you started.
