GoodSongs: Sylvie Vartan

I stayed up way too late last night listening to Sylvie Vartan.  She exudes a level of coolness that most American pop stars of the era (early to mid-60s) could only hope for.

How popular was Sylvie in the mid-60s?  In 1964 at the Paris Olympia, she appeared as the main attraction on the same bill as the Beatles.

Pretty awesome.  Pretty.  Awesome.
