    Crayons To Perfume's Girl of the Week is Christine Pilzer and the fabulous Femmes de Francais!

    Christine Pilzer was the ultimate ye-ye girl! A disc jockey, a mod, a teenager in France who loved just being a teenager! Sneaking out from her parents, hanging with her gang, loving pop music, fashion and comics. She was also an illustrator for comic books! But the one thing she had not done was make a record - and so she did!

    Christine is one of the few ye-ye girls who was able to take a light hearted approach to her two EP musical career, and be in control of it - and it's why she still enjoys the memories. See her perform, looking almost exactly as she did in the 60's in her bowl haircut with petite figure and mod dress - with Les Terribles in 2006!

    Now listen to a full hour of Crayons To Perfume 16 - French girls, Canadian Girls and other girls who sang in French!

    Christine Pilzer: Mon P'tit Homme Spatial
    Christine Pilzer:Ils pataugent
    Christine Pilzer:Ah-Hem-Ho-Uh-Err
    Violaine: Dam dou ah
    Violaine: J'ai des Problèmes Décidément
    Cleo: Et moi, et toi, et soie
    Cleo & Cedric: Le Jour Se Lèvera Sur Tout Ça
    Karine: Une Autre Autoroute
    Les Intrigantes - Mets Chinois
    Michelle Richard - Les Boites A Gogo
    Claire Lepage - Bam Bam Bam
    Karo - dans le ventre d'une enorme baleine

    This week, Crayons to Perfume is IN TROUBLE! GIRL TROUBLE! with our Girl of the Week, Linda Flavell Scott!!

    Little is known about our girl of the week, Linda (Flavell, as she was known in the US) Scott except for a handful of rather obscure girl pop 45's. Linda is however best known for her version of 'The Trouble With Me Is You' - our theme for this week!
    As far as I know, Linda stopped recording in 1969, and here's one of her last releases, 'You Wanted Me To Be Your Baby' which to me sounds a bit like Lulu's later 60's material.

    Now, check out the rest of our troubled girls on this week's Crayons To Perfume show 15

    Linda Flavel Scott: The Trouble of Me Is You
    Linda Flavel Scott: You Made A Fool Of Me
