Song Of The Year - Christine And The Queens - 5 Dollars
It really has been Heloise Letissier’s year. Letissier – aka Christine and The Queens, aka now it appears just “Chris” – conquered the world with her brilliant second album, reinventing pop music in a euro kind of way, and turning her stage appearances into her own unique form of performance art – but with banging tunes. "Chris” the album has topped just about every end of year poll going, with its lead single, Girl Friend, doing the same for many Song Of The Year listings.
Good as it is, we didn’t go with that one. We went for the sublime 5 Dollars instead (seen here in a performance from the BBC’s Live Lounge – to give you the opportunity to see how she integrates her magnificent dancers into what she does so well.) Why this one? Aside from the fact it’s great – we just love the way her French accent takes on the word “Dollars”, makes it sound slightly off, but wins! Genius.
Hit “Play” already. Damn!
