Here’s a Christmas song by George Michael that I didn’t even know existed. It’s so beautiful and the video is so moving. What a great artist we’ve just lost. But today, there’s something that makes me even sadder than George Michael’s death. It’s how artists, whose music was the life soundtrack for a generation, often since childhood, can […]
I fell in love with David Bowie and his voice as a child when I first saw Labyrinth. He has fascinated me since. Such an amazing and brilliant spirit… a true legend. This brings back so much memories. Some David Bowie’s quotes I don’t know where I’m going from here, but I promise it won’t […]

Emily King. Here’s a soul I would definitely like to meet one day.
Doesn’t it happen to you sometimes? You see someone in the street, or you sit across someone in the subway or hear someone talking at the table next to you at the restaurant, and you think : ”Yeah, I really wish I knew that person.” ?
Well that’s how I felt the very first time I heard a song by Emily King. And that’s how I’ve been feeling ever since, listening to the soulful and elegant folky/soul songs she’s been writing in collaboration with Jeremy Most.
So we all know Thriller, Wanna be startin’ somethin’ and Beat it, Billie Jean and Bad, Remember the time, Man in the mirror, Black or White and Smooth Criminal… but although most of true Michael’s fans know them, a lot of people never heard some amazing Michael songs that simply weren’t released as singles, some that remained unreleased for a long time or some that appeared on albums that were taken down by the press, preventing many people to enjoy beautiful, magical and often powerful songs like only Michael himself knew how to create.
I miss you Michael… <3
I found it really interesting and funny to read some of the comments people made about my last comic 30 years of little girls learning dance moves from music videos around the web, especially on Tumblr, which is known to be a social network used by young or very young people. First, there were people […]
Some people might think I’m old fashioned. Some young people might think I’m a very old woman who spends her time saying things like “In the good old days…” with a shaky voice. Some other might even think I walk around all day long without makeup, wearing turtlenecks and long dark ankle length skirts. It’s fine with me.
It won’t change the fact that what I see and hear everyday on TV and on the radio sometimes drives me to despair.
I know I don’t usually post reviews, but I just cannot NOT mention that Amel Larrieux’s new album, Ice Cream Everyday, is finally OUT ! And she does have big long curly hair doesn’t she, so no wonder why I love her so much ;) I’m no music critic, I’m a music lover, so I […]
