It’s Tough to Be a Baby

Posted in Uncategorized by Alastair on October 17, 2010

“Dur dur d’être bébé! (It’s Tough to Be a Baby)” is a 1992 song recorded by French singer Jordy Lemoine, who at  only four years old became the youngest singer ever to have a charted number-one single. “And mommy says go to bed, brush your teeth. Don’t pick your nose, don’t do this, don’t do that.” The song achieved quite the success across the world, particularly in France. Don’t ask me how or why this came to mind, but I just had to share. The video is ridiculous.

    Thank god I was in college and generally eschewing all pop culture around that time. I guess that’s what the 80s did to us. I have to say the video was mesmerizing. Will repost!

    And why are his parents so scantily clad in the beginning? And all the animal prints?
