More Friday Night Videos:: Nouvelle Vague with Julie Delpy


I think I'm unfair in my dislike of some actors crossing over into singing. The other way around isn't such a problem with me, as I still believe that Mick Jagger in Freejack {1992} was cinematic gold {cue laughter} and still remember Chris Isaak in Silence of the Lambs {1992}. Anyway. I've been irked by Zooey Deschanel and Scarlet Johansson dabbling in recording. Maybe I'm just cranky.

Somehow, Julie Delpy doing "La La La" works for me. I tend to like Nouvelle Vague and I think this song is a good vehicle for Delpy. The retrovideo doesn't hurt...


I wanna dance like we used to
When it was pure, when it was new
Love me whole, like I love you
Wanna be free, but free with you
I wanna dance like we used to
And not worry about you and me
We’re gonna die of global warming
Or even flu or creating smoking
I want to stay here for a while
Until it’s time to let go
I like to really take my time
Explore all that comes to mind
I like dance like we used to
Before the new world order world
Don’t wanna do what others do
Let’s pretend there’s no rules
I wanna dance like we used to
We’re so lucky and so spoiled
You and I have such futile jobs
Let’s stop acting like kings and queens
I want to stay here for a while
Until it’s time to let go
I like to really take my time
Explore all that comes to mind
FRENCH VERSES
Lalalalala…
