When I first heard Nouvelle Vague, I stopped in my tracks and had to ask the store what was playing. (Clearly, pre-shazam!) The song was “Making Plans for Nigel,” and the band was Nouvelle Vague: a french band covering New Wave music a la Bossa Nova… genius!
This video is just another example of how Nouvelle Vague makes everything beaucoup mieux. (much better!)
