    these cuts are totally lame and awesome at the same time.

    See, now, Vacances J'oublie Tout was my jam this summer, and I had the same version, but mine was credited to Elegance (spelled with accents on the first two e's). Also, check out what is either the album "Regrets" by Agathe, or the album "Agathe" by Regrets. The song Je Ne Veux Pas Rentrer Chez Moi Seule is excellent.

    Yes, "Vacances, j'oublie tout" (or in english "(when I'm on)Holiday, I forget about everything..." was by élégance >> http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CstPu4ZSmvE
    and Agathe was the name of that singer from Montpellier (south of France). Thanks BE for your posts !

    Thanks for posting. I agree with the above poster. I suspect this is not the Weather Girls but the (male?!) French pop band Elegance;

    Yes Elegance is the bang who performs "vacance, j'oublie tout".

    this Micky Milan dude is Yugoslavian (Serbian), real name Milan Zdravkovic, and actually speaks/sings in Serbian on the track (Volim te srce, ljubim te, dodji do mene, igraj do mene:)

    The Flash System tune is some sleeper fire. I'm working on an edit, anyone know if they ever put out a 12" with an instrumental?
