Very sad news. She did a version of "I'll Be Seeing You" together with Iggy Pop. Fantastic.

[youtu.be]

My wife introduced me to it and it was played on our wedding.
It was the first version of this great tune, I listened to and I started to work on it by myself. Since then it's one of my all time favorites to play.

RIP François Hardy. So sad to hear about her passing. It seems she was a great inspiration as a songwriter and icon for many to come after her. Mick Jagger described her in an interview as his ideal woman. I only know a few of her songs. I must listen more.

About Bob Dylan and Françoise Hardy :

1966, Bob Dylan plays at the Olympia.
He had been captivated by Françoise's beauty for some time.
Françoise Hardy was in the audience, Bob saw her and during the interval he refused to resume the concert unless Françoise came to see him in his dressing room.



After the concert, Françoise, Johnny Hallyday and some friends went to Dylan's suite at the George V Hotel.
In his room, he played her a few tracks from his forthcoming album, Blonde on Blonde, which would be released shortly afterwards.
One track in particular had a very clear message: 'I want you'.

(all this was related on books and on TV by Françoise Hardy herself).

=============

1964, release of "Another Side of Bob Dylan":



On the back cover, these are not the lyrics but unpublished poems:



One of which is dedicated to "Françoise Hardy, at the Seine's edge":



=======

1965, release of one of the three greatest monuments in Dylan's discography, "Bringing It All Back Home".
The cover photographer was Daniel Kramer.
Everything that appears, books and magazines, has been carefully chosen.



A whole series of photos were taken, and the one on the cover was cropped to fit a square format.
Here's one of the photos where you can see all the objects chosen by Dylan, some of which will disappear after cropping and the lenticular blur effect.
A wink in the wink: the cover of Dylan's previous album ("Another Side...") can be seen on the sofa next to the lady in red.



A 7"EP at his feet:



The very first single by an 18-year-old Frenchwoman, released in June 1962:




From Rolling Stone France :

The passion took him by storm, driving him to a café in New York's Greenwich Village to spend hours typing on his typewriter. A ton of papers crumpled, rewritten, lost... but recovered, first by the owner of the café, then by another. "These two people, who took a long time to find me, had inherited some documents. They thought they might be of interest to me", Françoise Hardy explains. Françoise Hardy recovered an entire sheet of letters clearly marked "For Françoise Hardy".
