The 60s have this unusual feature that they modified for ever the musical landscape. From now on, no need to take itself seriously to make a career, nor to repeat ranges or singing exercices for hours to hope to see its name on top of the charts. We finally understood that the song could also be a playful art, and that it was not necesarry needed to be a great professional to seduce.
That the public considerably makes look younger itself. The yé-yé idols brings dreams and cheerfulness, they are very young and carry the carefreeness of their twenty.
A lightness which we find highly-rated public because we do not still sepak unemployment, and which is translated in music by a fresh and necessarily unsuspicious pop. Even if all this is only short-lived – How can we hope to build a career with the pleasure ?
So much take advantage of the present moment. Yet, contrary to all expectations, several singers will manage to settle down for an indefinite duration in the heart of their fans. But beyond these exceptions, the great majority will return to the anonymity. Bad timing. Bad distribution. Tiredness of the public. Effect of double. The causes of theses failures are as well uncountable as uncertain, but especially inexplicable as their quality is obvious. It are some of these jewels which we present you here. Young ladies, who, with two or three exceptions, will have registered very little.
Marked by the seal of innocence, their records have often aged better than those eternals hits we all know. The patina of time has saved them, the nostalgia effect is not appropriate. There are only a few sharp collectors who until now have been drinking these delicious nectars, the latter knowing very well that jewels were hinding in the forest, they have not stopped finding them. These singers Òall have in common, a natural casualness, a sense of swing unstoppable and a sexy charm that, even if it has become indifferent because too familiar, has long seduced the whole world. A sex appeal made in Paris, a little « je ne sais quoi » good home !
We have deliberetaly completed the list of these obscure singers by some more famous stars, just to establish a faithful panorama of this wave of young talents who made their classes in the sixties.
