FrÓnšois & The Atlas Mountains - La Fille Aux Cheveux de Soie I heard this striking song on the inimitable FIP Radio
Very nice! Since I didn't understand the words I ended up simply listening to it since the video was so incongruent and flashing too much for me. I love hearing things I wouldn't have otherwise known about.

Definitely worth a listen.

Ha mightshould. I'm glad you like it.

You can listen online to the Parisian radio station FIP Radio.
They play a truly eclectic repertoire; so I often hear off beat stuff like this on that station.

Btw I do understand a bit of French. But these lyrics sound rather poetic and inscrutable to me...

It's a bit much prettyprettypretty piano for me. But I am bummed I cannot get FIP to play.

Janet, I see what you mean about the pretty piano. For me there's something intrigueing in the singers voice; to me it sounds like an alto female voice. And it has a strange indolent quality to me.

I'm surprised FIP Radio doesn't work for you. I've never had any problems.
Do I remember correctly that you have an internet radio? As in: a physical device... On mine I can just search for 'fip' and I find the station instantly.

Here's a link to the underlying mp3 stream. Are you linux? In that case you may need to get Rob to install some required so called codecs.

I'd been trying it at work -- sometimes stuff just plain won't stream here, and there doesn't seem to be any reason why. One site will work, another won't. I bet I can get it at home. (yes, I do have an internet radio. Two!)
