Carla Bruni: Nobody Knows You When You're Down and Out

Today's video comes from the first lady of France. Heiress to the CEAT tyre manufacturing fortune, Bruni has colourful and disputed parentage. She began as a model, but later devoted herself to music. She married M. Sarkozy last year.

Sexy, chic, beautiful - that's more than you can say for Sarah Brown, Cherie Blair or Norma Major. Or for Denis Thatcher, for that matter.

And she can sing, even if the arrangement here has a bit of an oompah feel to it.

For another performance of the same song, try the Spencer Davis Group (in their pyjamas) from the film The Ghost Goes Gear.
