What you're about to read is a collection of pointers to some of the music I've discovered on the iTunes Music Store, music I like enough that I want to share it. If you're an iPod owner and an iTunes fan (and if you aren't, what are you doing here?), maybe you'll find something new. Click on any of the CD covers to bounce over to the store and sample a few tracks. And then maybe stop by my other blog for a few well chosen words (and maybe a random snark or two).RSS feed

C'est Si Bon / Arielle Dombasle
C'est Si Bon was the trigger for another of those "Thank heaven for Google" moments. I'm sure you have them at least a few times a week, when you see a reference, know you know it but don't know why, and then praise the powers of the Internet for the ability to track it down so quickly and easily. This was one of mine; I knew I'd heard Arielle Dombasle's name before but had no idea what the context might be. I probably should have thought "actress" first, which would have saved a stop at Google on the way to IMDB. But no matter; in a few seconds I was skimming Ms. Dombasle's filmography for something, anything, that would explain that little tendril of memory that was tickling. Eventually I found it; a truly awful TV movie called Lace. Which is famous largely for one truly wonderful line: "Which one of you bitches is my mother?". And what's even more embarrassing than knowing that line is that I even remember the answer.

Which has nothing to do with this album by the American-born Dombasle, who sings mostly faux-French songs with her excellently acquired French accent. And which is rather fun, in a genuinely faux-French sort of way.
