My French is AWFUL, like I only know how to...French kiss (!!hubba hubba!!), ah oui' oui'!!! It's true. I have no idea if I'm any good tho'... ANYWAY, so Jacques Dutronc is well known the world over; however, I'm not sure if folks in the US care much. Um...for lack of a better comparison, please correct me if I'm wrong, but he was SORTA the male version of FranÇoise Hardy. He was a pop singer, for sure, but never had the "adult" nods other French vocalists were afforded. His entire '60s catalog is fantastic, tho'. Most of it is on EP, too, so FOUR songs per record...YEAH!! However, outta all his action, "Le Responsable" is TOPS!!
DAMN...this song rules. Everyone that knows it, loves it, and it always fills the dance floor. I could almost hear this playing at Emerald City Soul Club.
