On A Rien A Perdre

It is freezing out and it finally feels like Winter is here in our beloved city.  So to warm you up, here are some truly astonishing disco tunes from Saint Tropez.  Taken from the 1978 album Belle de Jour,  "Fill My Life With Love" will inspire you to well,  fill your life with love, specially during those cold winter nights.  Enjoy!

Like many disco groups of the '70s, Saint Tropez was a producers' creation, in this case of American producers Laurin Rinder and W. Michael Lewis who had already been successful with disco groups El Coco and Le Pamplemousse.  Saint Tropez was composed of a female menage-a-trois of three hot ladies doing some Lesbian chic.  Belle de Jour was the follow up after the success of Je T'aime which gave Serge Gainsbourg and Jane Birkin's well know classics some pornesque disco symphony treatments. My personal favorite from Je T'Aime is the feel good "On A Rien A Perdre" (It Has Nothing To Loose), a song that is entirely sung in French but sometimes the chorus sounds like they are questioning themselves if they are " I in a better mood" so here it is so listen for yourself and see if this can  put you in a better mood.  Enjoy!
