Again a French song which was later covered by Kate Ryan. Though both versions are completely different, you can hear they are identical in some parts. In 1987, the original, made by France Gall, was released. It was meant as a tribute to Ella Fitzgerald, a great jazz singer by the way, who will be featured later. In quite some charts it ended in the top 5. Kate Ryan made her version in 2008. However, today we go for the original. Enjoy
France Gall- Ella Elle L’a
A French song today, released in December (!) 1986. The song went to number one in Germany and Spain, but stayed on number 2 in France. A bit strange, since French song mostly do not have worldwide success… In 2008 the song again appears in the charts, now in the version of Kate Ryan. For today, we enjoy the original from the eighties. Enjoy
Desireless- Voyage, Voyage
Okay, I must confess: I am no big fan of the French language. Not that I had bad notes for French, no. And also not because of the sound of the language. Just because it was so difficult to learn. I never could remember words, or understand what they ment if it was spoken. Reading went a lot more easy.
But I love the sound of the language, because it sounds fantastic! And therefore, I love Kate Ryan’s French period, with songs like Voyage Voyagen and Ella Elle L’A.
And Désenchantée of course! Summer sounds are coming your way on number 11!
Number 11: Kate Ryan- Désenchantée
And no, I don’t know where the song is about.
