Sylvie Vartan "Je Voudrais Etre un Garçon"

I don’t know much about ye-ye, but I really dig it. Sylvie’s sound has a slightly harder edge than more well known ye-ye girls such as Francoise Hardy and France Gall (who I also dig). The guitar solo on this one sounds a lot like the proto-punk garage wail of the Sonices (!) but the song writing sort of reminds me of Boyce/Hart. I actually like the crazy 60s editing and charming and disarming unvarnished emotion Sylvie displays at the end. They sure as hell don’t make them like this anymore!
