The French are très magnifique!

CineMUSic is turning into this more-often-than-not feminist style music blog. I feature a lot of ladies in this blog, but hey, that's the music I tend to like at the current stage of my life.

Charlotte Gainsbourg's sexy little song "Trick Pony" was featured in the opening (and also sexy) montage of last week's episode of "Grey's Anatomy." It's sexy in that strong, confident way as opposed to strictly sultry and "We are so gonna do it" way.

Gainsbourg has released three studio albums, the first being in 1986, titled Charlotte For Ever, when she was just 15 years old. That kind of thing makes me wonder what I've been doing with my time for the last five years of my life. Better yet, she's a film star. Not like Jenny Lewis who had a brief stint as a child actress and a role in Pleasantville (wonderful film). Charlotte appeared in 21 Grams, Jane Eyre, I'm Not There, and Antichrist.

Want to know why her latest album IRM will crush your soul into oblivion and make your heart explode? As if Charlotte herself wasn't enough, Beck wrote and produced 12 of the 13 songs. I think that about covers it.
