Crave: Hollywood, Mon Amour

The French have an uncanny ability to take anything and make it chic — just think about how cute they look toting loaves of bread under their armpits! On Hollywood, Mon Amour, Nouvelle Vague producer Marc Colin takes songs from ’80s movies — “Take my Breath Away” from “Top Gun,” “Don’t you Forget About Me” from “The Breakfast Club,” etc. — and has various singers record them in a way that sounds sexy but simple. After listening to Yael Naim’s rendition of “Flashdance What A Feeling,” you will never again associate that song with oversized, off-the-shoulder sweatshirts or Jennifer Beals’ fancy footwork.
