Sounds like a good weekend to me

Do you ever get to work on a monday with the tunes from the weekend still buzzing in your brain?

Today, my poor, funny, lovely, underpaid, overworked assistante - from here on in to be known as Debbie - had to put up with my almost non-stop singing. And whistling. And humming. And none of it good. Even less of it in tune.

She bought a radio at lunchtime to shut me up. I kid ye not.

So what was I singing? Well, if I'm going to share these classics with you, you have to promise that you won't laugh/think any worse of me/tell anyone.

We have a deal? OK, here goes....

Top on today's sing-list was Moi...Lolita, the Mylene Farmer classic, sung most recently by Alizée - with the excellent 'c'est pas ma faut-e' line. The shame of it.



I annoyed Debbie all day with this one. She was putting up a poster and I was singing 'mais pas si haut-e' ...and then when she made me coffee I pointed out that 'c'est pas trop chaud-e'. And so it went on.

By the end of the day I was practically peeing my pants with these. She wasn't laughing.

A very (and I mean very) close second was Estelle and her lovely American Boy. Too cool, really.

This one was pretty big this morning, but died down towards the afternoon, when it was replaced by Katie Perry and her hilarious 'I kissed a girl and I liked it'. Debbie looked at me very curiously as I sang that 'I hope my boyfriend don't mind it...'.

Maybe she hasn't worked out my gayness yet. You'll excuse me whilst I stitch my sides back together, won't you.

Luckily I didn't get too far into singing the other songs of the weekend - Alphabeat's 'Fascination' and 'A cause des garcons' by the lovely Belgian that is Yelle. Both are very good songs for dancing to, too.

And I hear that 'Fascination' is particularly good for dancing to on the way home along the Avenue Daumesnil at five thirty in the morning. I'm not sure who told me that, though...

So, what have you been listening / dancing / drinking / misbehaving to this weekend?

Go on, show us your soundtrack....

Got to admit I am constantly humming "I kissed a girl" myself. :)

Softy! I'm shocked, surprised and not a little excited by your revelation. Tee hee.

Having listened to Owen Money on Saturday am, Tobacco Road, and Lets Dance an old Chris Montez number. Then having listened to a favourite CD - Oh Mio Bambino Caro has been murdered a bit and my final number - Calon Lan, just because I love it and I am a Cymraes

Poor, poor Debbie! You might think of singing lessons if you want to keep her! =)

My weekends are SO nothing like yours! You would think them boring. No dancing. No drinking. No music.

I did like your song, though, but I didn't quite "get" it all. I know NO French (I got the "moi"), so the beginning was almost lost on me.

Be extra nice to Debbie tomorrow!

VM, how very classy. That's quite the playlist....je suis impressed.

Louise, the song is basically about a young woman realising she quite likes the attention of older men, and who then goes, 'well, so what if I do?'. It's a bit weird, to be truthful, but very good for dancing!

I have an award for you at my place :)

.......shamefully Beware of the Dog, by Jamelia, a fair amount of ABBA, and heaps of Earth Wind and Fire.....

Hi Brett, thanks for the award! Even though I don;t put them on my site, I really love receiving them....thanks so much!

it's always good to know people appreciate these random words...

KP - there's no shame in that playlist! In fact, I'm definitely coming round to yours if that's the kind of music you play....

American Girl has infected me. It's going to take a few days to get it out of my system.

Yelle is... Belgian? Surely not? I mean, Belgian music is so.. so.. Belgian!

Love Estelle, have Alizé playing in my head now thanks a lot and Alpha Beat is just too goode-two-shoes for me.

I've been listening to .. almost anything basically. Predominantly KT Tunstall, Chris Rea (the beat goes on, because it links nicely with my thesis topic) and the Wombats - let's dance to Joy Division - I'm going to their concert in the Hague tomorrow night! :)

Torny, it gets in there and it doesn't get out!

Marjolein...oui, elle est Belge...et vraiement belge! Bon concert demain soir, alors...

Merci!
