Top Tracks # 2 - Sebastien Tellier 'La Ritournelle'



Okay, the second in my invaluable (oh alright then, mildly interesting) guide to the greatest tracks ever made (that you might not have heard of) is a few years old now but, despite listening to it time after time it's still just beautiful...from beginning to end. Sebastien Tellier himself seems like a bit of a character and isn't averse to taking the piss out of himself (witness his Eurovision performance) but this track (a love song...ahhh...bless) seems to play it pretty straight. It's a biggie too. 7 minutes and 31 seconds. You'll have to wait 3 minutes and 58 seconds for any vocals too, but they're worth it. Enjoy.

Let me guess...you've seen him live too? Doorstep?!

He supported Senor Coconut and yes it was a doorstep challenge. Did you attend?

The Baron said...

No comment. Where is the Coconut these days...I'll have to track him down. Maybe Kev knows where he is?

This track is one of the highpoints on Chill Radio's (dab) woefully small playlist.

The arrangement / dynamics waft in a strangely arhythmic way, clever. It also seems to get shorter every time I listen to it...
