Marilyn John

Marilyn was russian
And she called john...
The sun...
Admiration, vibration
Just an l.a.
Fast song
Just power, just soul
Just rythm and a view
And just swing from the south
And from there he knew
Marilyn was alone

On the wrong vibration
Just a phon-call coin away
From the sun...


Marilyn was an alien
And she called john
Admiration, frustration - ignore ass fucking
Just an l.a.
Fast song
Just perfume, just flesh
And from there he knew
Marilyn was alone
In the wrong direction
Just a phone-call coin away
From the sun...
It’s only broken english, but we like it

Vanessa Paradis was discovered on the TV show L'École des fans in 1980. She recorded her first single La Magie des surprises-parties in 1985. Although it was not a hit, it paved the way for the song with which she would become internationally famous - "Joe le taxi" in 1987, while she was still only 14 years old.[1] It was #1 in France for 11 weeks[2] and, unusually for a song sung in French, was released in the United Kingdom the following year, where it reached #3. It was taken from her first album M&J (it stands for Marilyn & John) which, although it gained a number 13 placing in France, drew little attention in the UK and did not chart.

In 1992, now 19 and working in the United States with rock musician Lenny Kravitz, who was her boyfriend for a while, Paradis began work on a new album sung in English, in which she had become fluent. Written and produced by Kravitz, the album, titled Vanessa Paradis, topped the French chart and briefly made the UK listings (number 45). One of the singles from it was Be My Baby, which made number 5 in France and gave her another Top 10 UK hit (number 6). She has since appeared in several films, most famously "Noce Blanche", for which she won the 1990 César Award for Most Promising Actress; 1999's La fille sur le pont (aka Girl on the Bridge), which became an arthouse box office hit in the United States[citation needed]; and 2004's Mon Ange.[1]

In 1991, Paradis promoted a fragrance for Chanel, entitled Coco. In the advertisement, she is dressed in all black and feathers, portraying a bird swinging in a cage. In 2004 she promoted Chanel's new handbags called Ligne Cambon. In 2006 she modeled for Chanel again for The New Mademoiselle handbag. On the musical side, she is included in the French children's album and concert "Le Soldat Rose". Paradis currently released a new album (Divinidylle). There are three versions (regular, limited edition which includes two songs that weren't released on the regular version and the Christmas edition which will be released later this year and will include another rare song titled "Abracadabra"). She started the Divinidylle tour in October. Some concerts will be filmed for the future release of a DVD. She is also in a new movie La Clef. The trailer and other promotion have currently been released. Vanessa recently won two Les Victoires de la Musique awards for her new album Divinidylle. Also, she is starting a summer tour for Divinidylle. In July, Vanessa is among the artists scheduled to appear at the Francofolies de la Rochelle festival and at Musilac festival. The dates for this year’s Francofolies de la Rochelle are July 11 – 16. The dates for this year’s Musilac are July 11-13.[citation needed] she also starred in a musical called "le soldat rose " her character was "made in asia"
