French Music Friday -- Vol. 5: Coeur de Pirate

Now that I'm back in France, French Music Friday is back. As with Claire Denamur, Coeur de Pirate (Beatrice Martin) is an artist that I knew about before crossing the Atlantic. However, she is better-known than Claire Denamur -- the Coeur de Pirate wikipedia page is translated into six languages while Mlle Denamur's page is only available in French.

I had a hard time choosing which song of hers to post because I have many favorites, but this music video is the most entertaining with a story easy for non-francophones to follow. You know that part in Monty Python and the Holy Grail when King Arthur chops off all of the Black Knight's limbs in a duel? If that made you feel squeamish, you might want to look away at around 2:12-2:16 when the brunette is flirting with the football player. Just a heads up. No pun intended.
