Clothilde “Fallait Pas Ècraser La Queue Du Chat”

AMAZING psychedelic French pop from 1967. Just awe-inspiring. Her real name was Elizabeth Beauvais. She only recorded two discs in 1967 with music by Germinal Tenas and lyrics by Jean-Yves Gaillac.

This particular cut is rather tongue-in-cheek and slightly morbid. The title translates in English to “Should Not Crush The Cat’s Tail”.

I love the arrangements. Like a slightly off-kilter Move with lovely female vocals in a language I can’t understand. One of these days I’m learning to speak French.

A cute little French model I adore translated this for me!! Thank you!!!

FRENCH:

L’était pas superstitieux ! L’aurait dû l’être un p’tit peu L’aurait mieux fait d’éviter L’innocent petit minet

Fallait surtout pas Ecraser la queue du chat. Non,non ,fallait pas.

Il travaillait dans le bois C’était un garçon adroit Qu’arriva-t-il ce jour-là ? La scie lui coupa le bras ! Comme il sortait d’ l’hôpital Une voiture l’accrocha Sa jambe droite lui faisait mal C’est la gauche qu’on amputa! Son malheur fut qu’il surprit Sa femme, un homme dans son lit ! De colère, il les tua Et la tête, on lui trancha. On remet ça parc’que c’était joli: Fallait surtout pas Ecraser la queue du chat. Non, non, fallait pas.

C’était la morale de cette histoire ! Hep !

ENGRISH:

He was not superstitious! He should of been a little bit He better should of avoided it, the innocent cat

He shouldn’t have squished the cats tail. No, no, he shouldn’t have!

He worked in the woods, he was skillful boy. what happened that day? the saw would cut his arm!

When he was leaving the hospital a car cut off his right leg was the one that was hurting but it’s his left one they had to amputate!

After this disaster, he found his wife in bed with another man! In anger, he killed them both and his head was sentenced to be cut off

Let’s get that into other words because it is a beautiful story:

He shouldn’t have squished the cats tail. No, no, he shouldn’t have!

That is the moral of the story! Yep!

My fave Serge Gainsbourg record is 1971’s Histoire de Melody Nelson which is essentially a concept album about Serge’s lust for cover model Jane Birkin. It’s a lecherous masterpiece of perversion, desire and corruption. This is Serge Gainsbourg at his best. The lush arrangements which he is known for are mixed with funky rhythms and sleaze-drenched guitar. Seductive, dark, disturbing. You don’t need to speak a word of French to get this album. Fuck yeah, I love this record.
So love the album cover as well. Looks like something I would shoot.

Day 09: A song that you can dance to

Jacques Dutronc: Les Gens Sont Fous, Les Temps Sont Flous (Disques Vogue), 1966.

This is a song you can dance to if you live in the Sixties or spend enough time watching films of people in the Sixties dancing and wishing you were there. :\
