Friday's French music break - Irma and Jason Mraz, "Can't take my eyes off you"

Friday's French music break this week is admittedly something of a stretch because neither of the singers is actually from France.

Nor is the song come to that: one that is more than 40 years old and has been heard time and time again because it has apparently been covered by more than 200 artists.

Add to that the fact that one of the artists was featured just a week ago in this same slot and...well, you could be forgiven for thinking that it's all a bit of a cheat.

Besides, it would be all but impossible to come up with a version of a song sung by so many that would impress wouldn't it?

Think again.

This live performance of Franki Valli's 1967 hit "Can't take my eyes off you" came during a screening of France 2's music show Taratata recently.

It's Cameroonian-born Irma - you remember her from last week's post - and US singer-songerwriter Jason Mraz getting together to blend voices in an acoustic version of the song.

Quite simply, it's music our ears were meant to hear.

More please.

So, click on the link below, it'll take you to the performance on Taratata - and enjoy!

They both have wonderful soothing voices. I think I may be tempted to buy Irma's new album.
