Artist: France Gall
Title: 夢見るシャンソン人形
Language: Japanese
Cover: A cover of her own song, ‘Poupée de cire, poupée de son’

I have just heard the very sad news that France Gall has passed away. I found this version of one of her most famous songs (from when she represented Luxembourg in the Eurovision Song Contest of 1965), recorded by her in Japanese, and I hope this stands as a testament to her amazing talent. It has been a truly dreadful couple of months for French pop, but we are lucky to have such a fabulous back catalogue of music to enjoy. I hope this will be a comfort to France Gall’s friends and family at such a difficult time.
