Gentlemen prefer blondes I only like bleached blondes Starry face long eyelash A touch of gloss A drop of snow to light the look of you Would you like me to become to blonde? Become blonde Would you like me to be ? I want you to be I want you to be blonde with long eyelashes floating in the air Starry face long eyelash A touch of gloss to blur the past Warp to warp warp my life Why ? hum don’t know, you don’t like blonde? I like bleached blondes , platinum blondes So you like all kind of blonde? I like all kind of blonds who are not blonde Blonde She does not suffer She does nothing She’s such a child No sense of sin Blonde A touch of gloss to blur the past Warp to warp, warp my life I like bleached blondes, platinum blondes, I only like bleached blondes Warp, warp my life I like all kind of blondes who are not blonde Warp, warp my life I like bleached blondes, platinum blondes, I only like bleached blondes Warp,warp my life Blonde A touch of gloss to blur the past

An easy tune for an easy trip An easy tune for an easy love to paradise The boys are bemused The girls are amused The boys, the girls, the boys, the girls are bemused The girls A new form of melancholy Let’s go to a club somewhere in Chicago somewhere in Berlin somewhere in Chicago let’s go Let’s got to Chicago An easy tune for an easy love An easy trip, trip, trick, to paradise, to paradise Let’s go to a club somewhere in Chicago somewhere in Berlin in Chicago let’s go to Chicago Just a potential for distraction She’s living all the time in suspension An easy trip, trip ... to paradise, to paradise Paradise

My Shapes 03:48
My days will be so light and I don’t care now if you have blanked me Cos I will reveal stood in front of me And no matter what you think I ‘ll be surfing My shapes, my lines, my luscious skin And all that pulse that breaks inside of me And all that pulse raging inside of me The water cleans my skin but my body’s bleeding If you accept it doesn’t hurt that’s what I keep saying that’s why I keep shifting Cos I will reveal stood in front of me And no matter what you think I ‘ll be surfing My shapes, my lines, my luscious skin And all that pulse that breaks inside of me And all that pulse raging inside of me My shapes My shapes, my lines, my luscious skin My luscious skin Cos I will reveal stood in front of me With only me

about

Olivia Louvel embarks on her cinematic opus “Lulu In Suspension” inspired by silent- movie star Louise Brooks and her book “Lulu in Hollywood”.

“Lulu In Suspension” was released in 2008 as a digipak CD edition with booklet on Optical Sound Records and Fine Arts which is run by French artist Pierre Belouin.

“Lulu In Suspension” CD edition Worldwide available at Optical Sound Records www.optical-sound.com/releases/os.027.php

Featured on the Louise Brooks Society:
"Many years ago I came across Louise Brooks' autobiographical book Lulu in Hollywood, a collection of her essays which I thoroughly enjoyed. I composed some tracks, taking an inspiration from the imaginary landscape it created in my mind, and also more directly from the Georg Wilhelm Pabst film Pandora's Box. At times I tried to embody Louise herself, at other times, perhaps, a modern Lulu from Berlin..."
