64. Michele (Gerard Lenorman)

Frenchman Gerard Lenorman (image credit) scored a string of hits in French-speaking countries as well as in The Netherlands in the mid seventies. Examples are Voici les cles, La ballade des gens heureux and Si j'etais president. His best effort is Michele, a hit in France, but disappointingly not in my home country. In this tender ballad, Lenorman reminisces on his high school sweetheart in the best French chanson tradition - with obvious homage to the Beatles both in the title and the lyrics.

Other songs by this act that would have qualified: not applicable.
