Sheila the Ye Ye Girl
While in Tokyo a few months back, I picked up this Sheila cd at a second hand cd shop. Like Sylvie Vartan, Sheila covered a lot of American pop songs (eg. Doo Wah Diddy) in the chirpy, happy early Ye Ye style. Born Annie Chancel, she got her stage name after her first teen pop hit - a French version of Tommy Roe's 'Sheila'.
Sheila - Papa t'es plus dans l'coup
Sheila's original Scopitone for Papa t'es plus dans l'coup
Ludivine Sagnier's cover of the song, as featured in '8 Femmes'. This is a remixed version not included in the film!
