Claude François was a very popular french singer during the 60s and 70s.
His most famous song is probably "Comme d'habitude" aka "my way" (cover by Frank Sinatra and many others...). By the way, it's also wonderful lyrics
Je me lève
et je te bouscule
Tu ne te réveilles pas,
Tu dois te réveiller...
His music ranged from pop to disco. One of his last song is "Alexandrie, Alexandrie"
Les sirènes du port d'Alexandrie
Chantent encore la même mélodie,
Les lumières de la lanterne d'Alexandrie
Font naufrager les papillons de ma jeunesse.
On stage, he was surrounded by a group of girls called the Claudettes. Meanwhile, he lived in a mill, surrounded by swans.
Unfortunately, he died in 1978 while he was playing PS3 in the shower.
