VERY VERY BAD THINGS

Owing to huge popularity - nearly 230 downloads to date (Ahem, would be nice if some of those people would be good enough to leave a comment to say thank you...) - and by request of Monsieur Guuzbourg I've finally had time to post this other Ewa Swann track.

If you missed Le Couer Fou, a lilting, yet twisted piece of J-C Vannier lolita-pop, you can get it here.


Now, if Le Couer Fou is a chanson to wild, tragic love, I imagine this - the A-side - could only be the soundtrack to VERY VERY BAD THINGS happening

Take a listen for yourself, and don't have nightmares...

Ewa Swann - Pour Quelques Secondes
[There are no re-issues of this to my knowledge, but as stated previously, the vinyl 45 is currently going for a fairly handsome sum on cdandlp.com]

Great song - Mordi's description totally nails it. Thanks for sharing!

Thanks for the comment Larry - see also the other Ewa Swann track I posted previously, here, http://lamourelectronique.blogspot.co.uk/2012/05/le-coeur-fou.html
I think you might enjoy that too!

credit where its due, Dom first posted the other side of this awesome Ewa Swann 45 on 27th May and said

"it brings to mind a more twisted version of the Lullaby from Rosemary's Baby sung breathlessly by a Lolita-esque Jane Birkin/Léonie impersonator."

Rather similar to mordi's comment a month later, no?

Dom said...

Oh thanks John, it's nice to know someone has read some of my musings that accompany the mp3s.

Stats fans might like to know that the downloads for this post have now reached over 1400! This is thanks in part to Mordi posting a link on Blow-Up Doll and Guuzbourg posting a link on Filles Sourires. So I'm very grateful to both of them for driving extra traffic to my blog.
