Nouvelle Vague - Bande a Part
While I'm not a big fan of artists that do covers, Nouvelle Vague's Bande a Part has become an exception. The album is exceptional. The music style is "Bossa Nova" and their spin on the covers they did are amazing. I still have not been able to identify who does the female vocals, but they are seductive, sultry and just absolutely beautiful. If you are a fan of Bossa, this is a must have album. Favorite Tracks: The Killing Moon - Originally recorded by Echo and the Bunnymen Dancing With Myself - Originally recorded by Billy Idol Heart of Glass - Originally recorded by Blondie Let Me Go - Originally recorded by Heaven 17
To be honest, I'd never listened that closely to the lyrics of "Sweet and Tender Hooligans" or "Blue Monday" before hearing Nouvelle Vague's swanky Bossa Nova versions of them! Now I'm addicted.
I love Nouvelle- Dancing with myself is the perfect song to sip mimosas to!
