Song of the Day - May 1, 2006

Kill Rock Stars have been releasing the back catalog of Stereo Total, which have been previously relatively unavailable in the US. If you are not familiar with Stereo Total, they sing in a variety of languages, most notably German, French, and English. Their Europop sound is a blast. Serge Gainsbourg is one of their biggest influences and the track "Vilaine Fille, Mauvais Garcon" on their 1999 release My Melody is a cover of a Serge Gainsbourg tune. Stereo Total even cover the Beatles' "Baby, You Can Drive My Car" under the French title "Tu Peux Conduire Ma Bagnole." One of the greatest and most fun tracks on My Melody is "Diskjockey" which is sung in French accompanied by what sounds like a toy electronic keyboard. Click here to listen.
