Music a gogo : rare France cover!

Rare alternate version of France Gall's German sung "Der Computer Nr. 3".
Freddy from Germany solved the mystery! "Very interesting post but,sorry Bruno,Version II is not France.It's Charlotte Marian,published on Tempo-Records (No.: Tempo 1016). Charlotte just tried to imitate a french accent to sound like France.
In the 60s,Tempo was a well known record company in germany.They recorded popular songs using unknown artists. Tempo singles were sold half the price than the original.Charlotte Marian (real Name Charlotte Bruhn) was married to Christian Bruhn, the composer of "Ein bisschen Goethe ..."".Thanks for the info Freddy!
MORE INFO! Just checked my mail and ..."Yes it's Charlotte Marian but her real name is...Katja Bischoff (°16.2.1937 Obernburg).Under this alias she recorded several records for the Teeny record label,the Tempo record-label in Germany.Katja Bischoff was also one of the 3 Sweetles,known from "Ich wünsch mir zum Geburtstag einen Beatle".The other 2 members of The Sweetles were Tina Rainford and Monika Grimm." WOW! A cover by a member of Die Sweetles :) Oh I've changed the tag.

    The second version makes me grin :) Always been rather partial to this tune, but hadn't heard the other version posted here. So what's so great about it? Well, the instrumention with its alterations is really quite cool (love the intro in particular). But blimey! Gall messes up the vocals (hehe). Forgive me good folks, but she never was a great singer and here she sounds just corny.

    All this makes it a smashing share! And, for the record, I love France Gall's 60s catalogue. So don't chuck them tomatoes at me just yet!

    Much obliged, Bruno :)

    Hi Bruno
    This is a really interesting post as there are cetainly enough differences to the original version to make it a really enjoyable track.
    Of course there's only one thing better than listening to France Gall and thats seeing and listening to her and you have got that covered too.
    Loved it

    Odd... my first thought was that the second version wasn't her, but maybe the pitch has been altered?

    Very interesting post but, sorry Bruno, Version II is not France. It's Charlotte Marian, published on Tempo-Records (No.: Tempo 1016). Charlotte just tried to imitate a french accent to sound like France.

    Aha, mystery solved before I even heard the whole track! It's a pretty good version regardless.

    Love those vids, especially the shots of the starchy, bored audience members.

    HI Roar,well I just like this song! ;)
    Of course now that it's clear it's not France all is forgiven and I won't throw tomatoes! :)
    Hi yeyeohyeah,glad you are enjoying!
    Hi Christine,blimey you must be a France Gall fanatic,and you're right! :)
    Hi Freddy,nice to see you here again and thanks A LOT for the info! :)
    HI marko,yes that audience could use some fun juice! :)

    Smiling. Well, I'm still partial to this tune and the vocals are funny. Pity I can't blame it on the adorable France Gall. So what next? Well, a great game of footie, a couple of cocktails (too many), and wooing the lasses will do as punishment for Bruno and I :)
