Francoise Hardy pt iv?

The above is one of my favorite Francoise Hardy songs, "Le Temps de L'amour." Devoted readers may recall this post I wrote about it in 2007. I was recently pleasantly surprised to see it featured prominently in the trailer for the new Wes Anderson movie, Moonrise Kingdom:

Between that Dirty Beaches song and this, it seems like there is a recent upswing in interest in Francoise Hardy, which is cool. Wes Anderson always uses really cool 60's music in his films and tends to use more than one song by an artist (like all the Kinks songs from Lola Versus Powerman in Darjeeling Limited), or at least multiple songs from the same era, so I am curious if there are more French pop songs in the film.
