We’ve all got Le Bateau Blues today. Or should that be Les Blues Le Bateau? I dunno. I did German. But, let’s head on into the weekend with good memories of the place. Like, here, for example, is our Spotify Seven. The seven songs that most remind us of Le Bateau nights. For better or worse. We don’t choose our memories, they choose us. Like that time we danced with Janice Long to Jason Nevins vs RUN DMC the week after Crash FM opened. Happy days.

So what’s your favourite Le Bateau tunes? These are ours, on a Spotify playlist. We’d love to find out. Especially if they’re Echobelly free.
