The winner of the 15th season of France’s version of American Idol (A La Recherche De La Nouvelle Star) was Julien Dore. He’s quirky, adorable, and has a good, contemporary singing voice. You can find quite a few songs he has done in English, but he is, afterall, the winner of the FRENCH verion of Pop Idol, so he is primarily a FRENCH performer.
He has one song called Les Limites, which I think is fabulous! It’s got a quirky little video – three of them actually – attached to it, and it’s a peppy, funky little song. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eH4khf0AM7k Go – listen to it – you’ll enjoy it.
But do you have to know French to enjoy the song? I’ve found a pretty literal translation, which is hard enough to read in English, but I don’t think it matters. He could be saying his name over and over, it’s just a fun song to listen to.
Does it matter?
