23min of Ska : Nikita

23skaNIKITAOkay, I’m going to level with ya’ll. I’ve never seen “Nikita” AKA “le Femme Nikita.” Hell, I have never even seen “Point of No Return.” But after picking a few songs after reading a plot synopsis on Wikipedia, I decided this episode needed more French bands. So a lot of early picks got replaced, because, well, this is the perfect excuse to get into some French ska! Sure, two American bands remained from the original song line up, but those are good songs which I think are relevant to the film… right? Alright, fine, I just really liked those two songs and didn’t want to replace them, are you happy? Also, I don’t speak French, so I hope that in the songs sang in French those bands aren’t saying some really horrible stuff!
