I have no idea what this song is or what it’s doing on my music player.The opening intro, with phone-pad tones chirping out the melody, seems
jarringly bright compared with the opening verse and the soft vocals.
This one plus the Bola Johnson could make a nice mini-set of
garçons fragiles en anglais, although Bola wasn’t singing in
English. Aha! It’s a cover of the Cher chestnut. “Do you believe…in life after love?” Jonathan’s snap judgment: So-so. The dialpad-tone accompaniment comes
across as gimmicky, but then so does covering a Cher song without
belting it like the karaoke veteran inside you.
