This afternoon I’m rocking out to the Poppy Does Paris ‘soundtrack’. I made one of these for The Out of Office Girl so I wanted to do one for PDP as well. You can find the full list on Spotify, these are the highlights …
Ca Plane Pour Moi – Plastic Bertrand
My husband introduced me to this song which sounds like the Beach Boys going mad in Paris in 1975. Love it.
Sympathique – Pink Martini
Pink Martini are one of my favourite bands and Poppy loves their retro vibe too. The refrain ‘Je Ne Veux Pas Travailler’ obviously means ‘I don’t want to work’ which is appropriate considering all the skiving Poppy does in this story
Sous le Ciel de Paris – Juliette Greco
This might be THE classic Parisian song, to be hummed while strolling down the Champs Elysees wearing a stripy top and cigarette pants – you have definitely heard this before even if you didn’t know what it was.
Sexy Boy – Air
This song is on Poppy’s mind as she leaves Jonathan’s apartment … As she puts it, her subconscious isn’t exactly subtle.
Joe Le Taxi
This is one of my go-to karaoke songs – just ignore all the weirdness about underage girls making friends with taxi drivers and sink into the atmos.
Un Homme et Une Femme
This romantic film soundtrack number is the best way to finish Poppy’s story (this part of it at least …)
