Three Imaginary Girls

Seattle's Indie-Pop Press – Music Reviews, Film Reviews, and Big Fun

Is it strange to anyone else that two songs I've been listening to quite a bit in 2008 include the word derriere?

It's surely more eloquent that the words that can be substituted for it. Who knew it rhymed so well, too?

Oh, how beautiful it sounds when Claudia sings it in the Magnetic Fields' song "California Girls:"

They ain't broke, so they put on airs,
the faux folks sans derrieres

There's no video for it yet, but here's the MP3.

(Sidenote: Here's a link to download my FAVORITE song on the new Magnetic Fields' album, "Drive on, Driver" – go to the bottom of this page for the MP3)

Next is the more bootilicious use of the word: Britney Spears in her latest single "Piece of Me:"

There still gon' be pictures of my derrière in the magazine
You want a piece of me?

Now, are there any other songs out there that mention this frenchie word for fanny? Or places it could have been used?
