Sacrebleu is the debut album from Dimitri from Paris.

Cult movies samples[edit]

Some tracks sample quotes from 50s and 60s cult movies such as Breakfast at Tiffany's, La Dolce Vita, and The Party.

The Prologue opens: "Hello There and Welcome to the exciting world of Hip. This is a new departure in language instruction for English-speaking people who want to talk to - and be understood by: jazz musicians, hipsters, beatniks, juvenile delinquents and the criminal fringe." This is a sample from Del Close John Brent's 1959 comedy spoken word album How to Speak Hip.

Track 4, Nothing to lose, uses Claudine Longet's vocal performance from Peter Sellers' The Party.

Track 10, Une Very Stylish Fille, samples quotes from Breakfast at Tiffany's. Holly (Audrey Hepburn) asks "How do I look?" and Paul (George Peppard) replies "Very good. I must say I'm amazed." The song is titled after Mrs. Failenson's (Patricia Neal) quote, "I am, a very stylish girl." This track was also used by Volvo for a commercial.

The second part of Nothing To Lose (Lounge Instrumentale), also titled separately as Toujours L'Amore, samples this quote by character Sylvia Rankinfrom (Anita Ekberg) from Fellini's La Dolce Vita,: "I like lots of things, but there are three things I like most: Love, love and love." The song ends with a sample from the beginning of Fellini's , which says: "Bella ragazza! Americana, eh?"
