Corine – Un Air De Fête À Tokyo [Japanese Version]

One year ago, French nu-disco queen Corine released her debut album Un Air De Fête. A party record indeed, to which it’s impossible to sit still. I’ve recommended several of the album’s singles, but the title track was my favourite. Not in the least because of the irresistible synth, that appears to be borrowed from Donna Summer’s I Feel Love. There’s no denying Giorgio Moroder has been a big influence, anyway.

Two years ago, Corine put out an Italian version of her debut single Pourquoi Pourquoi (called Perché Perché). Now, she chose Un Air De Fête as her next single. However, as the new title Un Air De Fête À Tokyo gives away, it’s sung in Japanese. That doesn’t make it an easy choice for radio stations in Europe, for whom French is difficult enough. But it’s a clever move for her to break through in Japan, with its 126 million inhabitants. And for those who listen first and foremost to the song as a whole, it’s still the same fun track it always was.
