So this is what is twirling around my head of late. Zou Bisou Bisouuuu Zubizubizuuuuuuuu
Strangely enough I don’t watch Mad Men; I’d like to but just never have. I think mainly because I find January Jones to be as cold as forgotten fish fingers in the freezer. Don’t get me wrong, I love the styling and 50s into 60s culture referencing but maybe as I haven’t watched more than five minutes I haven’t allowed myself to get sucked in. Yet.
Whether you watch it or not, this clip from the premiere of the series fifth season is Don Draper’s new wife, Megan, singing a lithely sexy version of Gillian Hill’s 1961hit, which has also been recorded by Sophia Loren.
Actress Jessica Paré stated how the song was perfect for showing Don’s want for privacy, especially in front of his friends and co-workers, whilst also highlighting Megan’s oblivion by “unknowingly putting their intimate connection on the line”.
It proved so popular that ‘zou bisou bisou’ trended worldwide and now it’s being released as a single on iTunes!
