5 days of Beatles covers - Day 4
From Radio France Internationale: Claude François has become the undisputed icon of French kitsch. His first hit "Belles Belles Belles" (Claude's French adaptation of an Everly Brothers' song) rocketed into the charts in the summer of '62, launching the young singer's career. Claude went on to record a whole string of hit singles, rocketing to the top of the charts with songs such as "Marche tout droit" and "Dis-lui". Meanwhile, Claude's fan club soon reached staggering proportions. Indeed, it was not unusual to find hordes of screaming teenage girls pressed up against the stage at Claude's early shows. The singer's well-groomed look - all slicked-back blond hair and dapper suits - and his sentimental songs were guaranteed to find favour with female audiences.
