Brigitte...

...Today at some point a melody came up in my mind. A melody that I felt belong to Stereolab and, quite quickly, I realised it belongs to "Brigitte". I was right. I listened to it now and I can't believe I remember that pop hook! I think I only listened to this song once several months ago, but somehow it remained in my mind and resurfaced only now in my conscious. And obviously only now I realised how much I like it. Wow, so underrated in my books. And I thought there aren't anymore Stereolab songs left to appreciate for me! I was wrong.
And the second part of the song is great too.

Re: Brigitte...

I read the track listing wrong on ABC and I thought some other song was Brigitte until this past year. Then I discovered my mistake. and I was so surprised. it was a good surprise just it was so shocking. I like that ABC. that's a good one. today I'm going to make it my number one.

I'm sorry to hear that; didn't know that about her. It's a shame when great artists let that kind of hate into their lives. Maybe it's a form of mental illness. I remember Kurt Vonnegut (forget which book) talking about the "thunderstorms" inside the head of family friend Jack Kerouac that caused him to spew racist and anti-semitic babble. Vonnegut also described the writer Louis-Ferdinand CÚline in a similar way. CÚline wrote one of the great novels of the 20th century, "Journey to the End of the Night", yet he was a rabid anti-semite. Sad.

Re: Brigitte...

Is this for real?

The song is about Brigitte FONTAINE, not Brigitte Bardot.

Re: Brigitte...

Nine years ago, when I took my first job here in Paris, I found that one of my new colleagues was named 'Brigitte'. I excitedly started telling her about how one of my favourite bands had a song featuring her name, and she seemed intrigued.

I brought it the next day and played it for her. She hated it. She thought me a freak for even thinking she might not hate it.

That was the last time I ever spoke to anyone at work*.

Re: Brigitte...

wow. that's humiliating. I thought the other song was Brigitte, yeah, I think I thought spinal column was Brigitte and I like that song better. I don't like Brigitte.
