Tueurs de la Lune de Miel - Route Nationale 7

Although Tueurs De La Lune De Miel (The Honeymoon Killers) were beloved in their native Belgium, the band went unfairly unnoticed in the Anglosphere. The French-speaking sextet explored new-wave, jazz and rockabilly, although here, a more straightforward route was taken: covering Charles Trenet's memorable Route Nationale 7. The song was quirky and inventive, comparable to the Flying Lizards and arguably paving way for acts like Stereo Total in the 1990s.
