 Cristina: La Poupée qui fait non (single Version)

The Doll That Says No

I picked up this French compilation LP recently called La Musique du Faubourg and there are some superb old french pop numbers on it, compiled by Malik Aiary it concludes with this 1980 version of La Poupée qui fait non by Cristina.

La Poupée qui fait non (English: "The Doll That Says No") is a 1966 song written by Franck Gérald (lyrics) and French singer/songwriter Michel Polnareff the music. It was recorded by Polnareff, becoming an immediate success in France and one of Polnareff most definitive songs. Jimmy Page (Led Zeppelin/Yardbirds) played guitar on the recording. Later, the english version was a hit for the Byrds and Saint Etienne covered it on the 1999 album A Tribute to Polnareff.

I've since discovered there are loads of cover versions of this song, many in french but also loads in English, German, Italian and Spanish. Cristina Monet-Palaci's 1980 version here adds a funky baseline and cowbells to disco up the track, which is also sampled by Dimitri From Paris' La Rythme Et Le Cadence track from his Sacrebleu LP.
