Top 10 Best Amanda Lear Songs

Amanda Lear is a French icon known for her paintings, her modeling history & her wide variety of music, ranging from Eurodisco to funk, new wave (including its subgenre synth pop), pop rock, house, Eurodance, Latin pop, club, jazz, etc., along with her novelty-style singing, plus her revolution in fashion. Yet due to her whiskey voice, she's been nicknamed the Marlene Dietrich of Disco (due to its resemblance to Marlene Dietrich's voice).
The Top Ten
1 Follow Me

The best you'll ever hear from her & her only top highest hit. It's powerful, catchy, uptempo & has a touching storyline. Not to mention it uses the wall of sound (created by the late Phil Spector) & is 3 minutes 57 long on the standard version but a whopping 10 minutes 48 seconds on the 12" mix or full version, which adds to the timing. From her 1978 album Sweet Revenge.

2 Queen of Chinatown

The song that almost gave her an honorific nickname. It also sounds powerful & meaningful for the theme of the song. Yet it's another top hit for her.

3 Fashion Pack (Studio 54)

An absolute masterpiece. A perfect tribute to fashion designers while you kept on dancing. Yet it was another top hit for her. Studio 54 was the place for dance parties & fashion in the 70's.

4 Enigma (Give a Bit of Mmh to Me)

A powerful song with a touch of beauty, like an enigma, as she defined. A truly powerful classic & another top hit from her.

5 The Sphinx

The album-titled song & a relaxing song to listen to after several uptempo dance bangers. Yet again it's another top hit of her's.

6 The Lady In Black

This song almost gave her an honorific nickname as well. At least she wore a black uniform during this & on the cover you're seeing. Yet this was perfect for Halloween in the late 70's.

7 Lili Marleen

A splendid cover of a war-themed ballad turned into a hi-NRG Eurodisco masterpiece. Marlene Dietrich sang it in a good deep voice too, but Lear made such a deep-voiced cover danceable. It's her most famous cover obviously. The original song was by Lale Andersen (R.I.P. 1905-1972).

8 Gold

That's the simplest description for this song & all of her songs. Gold. Like nobody else, she mastered the minds of the world in & outside French territories with her music. This's uptempo & deserved its spot as a high-scoring hit of her's.

9 Egal

A clever song that uses such a mystic title. Some say its sounds like Eagle, but Egal really means equal in French. She spoke French in this song & it's perhaps her most famous French song for a reason.

10 Diamonds

The song has a powerful vibe & is sharp like the glare of diamonds. Originally from her 1980 album Diamonds for Breakfast.

The Contenders
11 Fabulous (Lover, Love Me)

Like the name says, it's fabulous.

12 La Bagarre

A classic dance song with some Hound Dog flair. It means the fight.

Eurodisco with a touching classic rock tribute & a traditionally festive atmosphere.

13 Solomon Gundie

Underrated. It means Solomon's bundle in German.

A good song. It means Solomon's bundle in German.

14 Japan

A touching tribute to Japanese culture.

15 Miroir
16 Incredibilmente Donna

Incredible Donna, yet describing the song as incredible is an understatement.

Incredible Donna, yet she gave the song its description which's the least to say.

17 It’s a Better Life

Life was so much better in the 70's. She told us how life was in the 70's.

Good lyrics & story over a catchy beat.

18 Oh Boy

Clever, novelty storyline & lyrics.

19 Tam Tam

A very fast paced song with comical vocals & lyrics.

A very fast-paced song with comical story & lyrics.

20 Never Trust a Pretty Face

There are many tracks describing this. This's no exception. Most people these days aren't thinking about the beauty within them. Yet what we see outside isn't always what we see inside. Good meaning.

Everybody knows tracks with this title, this is no exception. Good story & beat.

21 When
22 Rockin' Rollin' (I Hear You Nagging)
23 Magic

Like the name says, it's magical.

24 Berlin Lady

Clever novelty storytelling.

25 These Boots are Made for Walkin'

1 of the most vivid covers of Nancy Sinatra's signature hit.
