Niagara


6-8-09 Niagara


While these were new releases, I was quite a fan of the French 80’s band Niagara – Daniel C. & Muriel M. I wrote to them (in English), and she wrote back (in English) – sending me a CD & a PAL VHS music video! My friend Joe has her solo CD, and I have his solo CD, but the ones I really like are:

The sole reason they ever get compared to Eurythmics is that they were a male / female duo, and that they both made pop music. I think Daniel was a very slick producer and writer.


Seems like I just missed them by a few days, on several of my trips to Europe. Isn’t it about time for a “Best Of” CD?


Merci pour la musique, Muriel et Daniel!

You forgot at one point Muriel had bright red hair. Definitely Eurythmics!
