Boby Lapointe- Comprend Qui Peut (Best of comp.)

I first came across Boby Lapointe in Francois Truffaut's "Shoot the Piano Player." His song, "Framboise," kind of annoyed me the first time I heard it, but with every next viewing of the film, I came to love it (see it below). I was also a little disappointed that the album version was much slower, even though "Marcelle" is about the pace it was in the film. I love his mannerisms too.
This is subtly strange music. I can't think of anything else quite like it. Yet another CD that almost automatically puts me in a good mood.
Maybe it's the bouncy, almost march like, rhythms or his seemingly primitive vocal delivery, or both. I don't know much more than that it makes me bounce and laugh, and that's enough for me.
