Chanson Du Jour: Volia l’ete (Summer)

Les Négresses Vertes – Volia l’ete (Summer)  

Heard this song playing outside at a wine tasting today, and it reminded me of a truly great band from the late ’80s – Les Négresses Vertes.

If The Waterboys had been born French, they would have sounded like these guys. Lead singer Helno Rota, who died of a heroin overdose at the age of 29, in 1993, was the real deal – a great singer, performer, and hell-raiser.

This song is from the band’s classic from 1988 Mlah
