 Jacques Dutronc - Mini, Mini, Mini/Francoise Hardy Blues
Now, I know I am not alone being driven to the point of madness by coming across music from adverts that you can place in terms of long term memory and ringing distant bells back in the old grey matter amongst the fluff and cotton wool filled dusty vaults but just can't quite put your finger on in the index cards and you search the internet....the websites devoted to such searches are largely not fast enough and some are really poor......but here's a recent Kleenex for Men advert soundtrack, featuring the French Pop legend that is Jacques Dutronc - 'Mini mini mini/Francoise Hardy Blues' check Youtube for the original video with Jaques and Francoise. It's a classic. Sadly I can't post it here because they've forbidden the embedding.......shame but still here 'tis..................


Jacques then........


"Mini, mini, mini"



Jacques now.........

It's always a strange surprise to hear about Dutronc in a non-french blog! He's as famous as he's discreet, but part of our life like "Camembert" or "vin rouge"!... And a great sens of humour!
Glad to read you!
