Musical palate cleanser, le ear worm edition

Here’s another song that popped up on my iPod last week that I can’t get out of my head.  If you watched Tarentino’s Death Proof, you might remember it playing at the close.  It’s April March’s “Chick Habit”.

That’s an Anglicized version of a mid-60s French hit by a teenaged France Gall, part of what came to be called yé-yé music.

My favorite version of the song is also in French: Fabienne Delsol’s “Laisse Tomber Les Filles”.

Love the percussion and the horns in that.

It’s amazing how many covers of this song exist.  Here’s a live version performed by Calexico, fronted by Guatemalan singer Gaby Moreno, that exudes cool.

See if this stays out of your head.
