"Playa Bianca" (2000) is a musical composition by French writer Michel Houellebecq and Bertrand Burgalat. It features the "parlando" vocals of Houellebecq.

Charles Petit is the director of the video clip.

In the words of the director:

"Michel Houellebecq released an album five years ago on the French label Tricatel. The lyrics was from his poems, the music was from Bertrand Burgalat, and I was the director of the video."

The single was featured on the album Présence humaine, released on Bertrand Burgalat's Tricatel label in 2000.

The track is reminiscent of "Sea, Sex and Sun" by Gainsbourg, but also (and the link is more oblique here) of Deleuze reciting Nietzsche on Richard Pinhas's Le Voyageur composition.
