Francois & The Atlas Mountains - 'City Kiss'

On the right side of 'affected'

Ah, Monsieur, how pleasant it would be to live in this world of jingle jangle, butterfly melodies, Gallic insouciance and romance where lovers “are so easily pleased”. Yet there’s something undeniably wonderful about ‘City Kiss’ that prevents it from coming over at all affected or smug, the darting between English and French suggesting the hurried joy of a mind in love.
