Timeless Classic Of The Day

Today, I’m dedicating the Timeless Classic in honour of French legend France Gall who died of cancer early this year.

France Gall is the muse who inspired the 1968 song Comme d’Habitude (by Claude François who wrote the song after his breakup with Gall) that later, adapted by Paul Anka, became the worldwide hit My Way on Frank Sinatra’s voice.

Gall, born into a musical family in 1947, recorded her first hit, Don’t Be So Stupid, when she was 16.

In 1965, she won the Eurovision song contest, representing Luxembourg, with the Serge Gainsbourg song Poupée de Cire, Poupée de Son. And enjoyed more international success in 1987 with her tribute to jazz legend Ella Fitzgerald, Ella, Elle l’a.

She retired from her music career following the death of the eldest of her two children in 1997, and spent the final years of her life working on various humanitarian projects.

Cette femme, inoubliable… Bravo et merci France!! Repose en paix.
