EN

In most European countries Kate needs no introduction: the disco queen who is best known for giving a new twist to popular (often French) tracks. Although we have a soft spot for her own written material, the Belgian once again selected a cover. The choice was this time Comment Te Dire Adieu, the famous song that is written by Serge Gainsbourg and made Françoise Hardy a superstar at the end of the 60's.

In 1989, it became a hit again by the adaption of Bronski Beat’s frontman Jimmy Sommerville, and now Kate is trying to do it for a third time (although it is actually the fourth time if you also count the Vera Lynn version).

And yes , Kate knows how to make a pop hit: three minutes and a tune which stays in your head. She did it again. Not by imitating Françoise Hardy, but with her own Euro disco-style, although the beats are a bit lesser now. Conclusion? Pure pop!

In de meeste Europese landen hoef je Kate Ryan niet meer voor te stellen: de disco queen die vooral bekend is door populaire (vaak Franse) tracks een nieuwe draai te geven. Ofschoon we een boontje hebben voor het eigen geschreven materiaal, kiest de Belgische deze keer opnieuw voor een cover.

De keuze viel op Comment Te Dire Adieu, het door Serge Gainsbourg geschreven lied dat van Françoise Hardy op het einde van de jaren 60 een superster maakte. In 1989 werd het opnieuw een wereldhit door de bewerking van Bronski Beat-frontman Jimmy Sommerville, en Kate probeert dit voor een derde keer te doen (ofschoon het eigenlijk de vierde keer is als je ook de Vera Lynn-versie meetelt).

Tot spijt van wie het benijdt, Kate weet hoe een pophit moet klinken: drie minuten en het moet in je hoofd blijven hangen, en dat doet ze opnieuw. Niet door Françoise Hardy te imiteren, wel door haar eigen Eurodisco-stijl, ofschoon de beats wat achterwege zijn gebleven op deze single.
