Yé-Yé

Lately I have been listening to a lot of 60’s french pop. The Genre “Yé-Yé” is a style of pop music that emerged in France and other places in Europe in the 1960’s. Young female singers became very popular with this genre. Some of the most famous were Françoise Hardy, Chantal Goya, Jane Birkin, and Brigitte Bardot. Imagine, Brigitte Bardot singing about Harley Davidson motorcycles while wearing thigh-high boots and a black leather mini skirt.

When I was a little girl, I pronounced girls as “guls” and I told my mom that we could only listen to girl singers. If the radio was playing I would ask if it was a “gul” and if it wasn’t I would tell her to change the station. I was quite sassy and girly.
