This was delightful. Thanks baleen.
Nice work baleen. I submitted this a long time ago AND you commented on it.
BTW I watch this video over and over again.
Also she is Portuguese/Belgian.
Lio is a Belgian singer and actress, born as Wanda Ribeiro de Vasconcelos in 1962 in Mangualde, Portugal. In 1968, she and her family moved to Belgium.
She was a pop icon in France during the 1980s. Her first selftitled album was produced by Marc Moulin and Dan Lacksman from the electro-trio Telex. In 1982 the American music duo Sparks worked with her on the album Suite Sixteen, on which some of her previous songs were translated into English. Suite Sixtine. Suite Sixtine was compiled and art directed by Ralph Alfonso for Attic Records Canada, where it originally appeared. She worked with Etienne Daho and Jacno. She is known mainly for her song, "Banana Split" redone on the Suite Sixteen album as "Marie Antoinette." She first appeared on the screen in 1983 in Chantal Akerman's film The Eighties. Ackerman recast her in the 1986 film Golden Eighties, a lighthearted, humorous French pop musical about the people who work together in a Parisian shopping center. Lio plays a carefree hairdresser in the movie. Lio is a judge on French idol show Nouvelle Star.
I know you submitted it but it's giving me a valid ID grab. Don't be mad.

this is great. Yelle pretty much copied this!
Hmm, I don't remember seeing this one at all on Quebec's MusiquePlus in the late 1980s/early 1990s (the period of time I watched that channel extensively). I mean, it would have been a few years old by that point, but MusiquePlus had a "Flashback" show and they did show European French videos too, not just Quebec French videos.
I'm sure it must have been shown on MusiquePlus occasionally, but somehow it didn't leave an impression on me, and this is precisely the sort of 1980s cheese I thought I had an excellent memory for.
