What are you serious??? Rose Laurens is dead????????
Oh my God. I was just listening to Night Sky few nights ago. I had no idea.
She had a great voice and was in the original French musical version of Les Miserables.

French 80s - I like Corynne Charby, Sandra Kim & Annabelle and of course the big hits of Niagara.

I discovered this today and just listened to it for the 50th time.

Yianna katsoulos - Les Autres Sont Jaloux
https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_cont ... kghUuGjnBo

The video is perfect. I wish I was a teenager in the 80s. The 90s were too boring.

Let's precise Plastic Bertrand is belgian. Etienne Daho is still very appreciated in France. He keeps on releasing pop-rock albums and it seems that they sell very well. For those who love french synthpop, his 2nd and 3rd albums "La Notte, la Notte" and "Pop Satori" are great.
