Marie-Claire Courcel: Brace for the Obscure (60s rock)! — February 22, 2022

364) Marie-Claire — “Un Petit Bigoudi”

Classic ye-ye from Marie-Claire’s only EP (’66) — “Un Petit Bigoudi” (” A Little Curler”). Google translate gives the gist of the song —

"A little curler on a blonde head.  A hairpin hanging from the roller, in a blowout, for a moment have become friends, have become lovers.  A little curler on a blonde head.  A hairpin, it was enough for a blond child think of prince charming who would be her husband by being her lover.  Pin and curler on that blonde head.  Above the head in folds, inside put in plan.  A love story which heated like an oven under his golden dryer.  The beautiful child dreamed that a little curler looks like many men, desiring to ride, gets pinned.  But the time has come to go to the meeting of the waited boy.  What was waiting like crazy.  Combing her hair, the pretty blond head laid close to each other hairpin and hair curler, wishing them to be happy. But already in his eyes happiness radiated Like a summer sun.  A little curler on a blonde head.  A hairpin gave birth to love."

Marie-Claire was wise beyond her years.  Yes indeed, a little curler looks like many men, desiring to ride, gets pinned.
