English disco in French
Yep, the songstress and actress covers several English disco songs in French on this one (she has also done English songs on other albums), including "Reunis" (should be Réunis), a.k.a. "Reunited", with Pierre Lalonde, who also had an impressive music career in Québec and hosted a fun game show called The Mad Dash and then The Pierre Lalonde Show immediately thereafter.
But anyway, back [cover] to Michèle!
She reminds me of Madeline Kahn and maybe a bit of Bernadette Peters there. :) More info on Michèle here. (in French, but even if you don't understand it, you can still see the massive discography)
Listen to her version of "I Will Survive" ("Je Survivrai") here:
Sounds pretty decent, I must say!
