Jesus Kitsch! Another Sunday flea-market 7 inch haul.

Jesus Kitsch. Dalida. Sonopresse. 1972. France.

Jesus Kitsch. Why? Because Dalida says so. This post is dedicated to my good blogging buddy Jeanine AKA BeKitschig. Why? Because the 7 inch vinyl records I found at my latest Flea Market visit are all a bit kitschy. And kitsch is cool. And we all need some good music to kitsch out to!

Jesus Kitsch. Why? Because Dalida says so. Don’t believe me…


Told you. Next up… Everybody’s Got To Learn Sometime by The Korgis. Crazy cover art. Dreamy song. Anyone else think that Air’s ‘Playground Love’ from The Virgin Suicides is so similar to this?

Everybody’s Got To Learn Sometime. The Korgis. 1980 Rialto Records. France.


Next… Carousel Waltz by Jo Boyer and his Orchestra, from the film Carousel.

Carousel. Jo Boyer. Philips Minigroove. 1957. France.


Next… Mexican Corn. Herb Alpert’s Tijuana Brass.

Mexican Corn. Herb Alpert’s Tijuana Brass. EMI. 1963. UK.


Next… It’s French entertainment legend Chantal Goya riding a pelican, in a style not unsimilar to the kid in The Neverending Story riding Falcor the Luck Dragon, or Jon Snow and Daenrys riding dragons in Game of Thrones. I choose life, I choose pelicans, because my mate is a pelican!

Mon Ami Le Pelican. Chantal Goya. RCA. 1979. France.


Next… Heidi!

Is Heidi kitsch? Maybe she is, maybe not. Only you can decide. Use your powers of kitsch-judgement to discover! My mind is already made up, so is our intrepid office cat Wooof, who is currently dressed as a little lamb and skipping about the scanning room, singing:

Halala hidi, halala hidiHalala hidi, halala hidiHalala hidi, halala hidiHalala hidi, halala hidiHalala di hadi hadi haldihaha

Heidi. Sang by Danielle Licari. Disques Adès. 1980. France.


Next, and lastly… is ABBA kitsch?

Why, dear vintage mates, if ABBA isn’t Kitsch, then something surely must have been in the air that night!

Fernando. ABBA. Melba. 1976. France.


Thanks for reading, listening, smiling and kitsching about with us 😎😍🀩
