Biography

Early years

In spring 1963, Robert Gall encouraged his daughter to record some songs and send the demos to musical publisher, Denis Bourgeois. That July, she attended an audition at Théâtre des Champs-Élysées, after which Bourgeois wanted to sign her immediately. As France was minor, her father signed the contract with the music division of Philips.

At the time, Bourgeois was already with the label as Artistic Director for Serge Gainsbourg. Bourgeois thus becomes that of Gall as well, and she starts by recording 4 titles with jazzman, composer and arranger Alain Goraguer.

Heavyweight Team for a Minor

In 1963, on Gall's sixteenth birthday, her surprise gift was hearing the first airplay of her song on the radio. This single, Ne sois pas si bête ("Don't Be So Stupid"), enters the hit parade as of November, and was an absolute success. Serge Gainsbourg, whose career was faltering in spite of his several albums and his songs written for singers such as Michèle Arnaud and Juliette Gréco, was asked by Bourgeois to write songs for Gall. Gainsbourg's N'écoute pas les idoles ("Don't listen to the idols") became Gall's second single, which reached the top of the charts in France in March 1964.

At the same time, Gall makes her debut on stage by opening for Sacha Distel in Belgium. She teams up with Distel's business manager, Maurice Tézé, also a lyric writer. This team will allow her to create an original repertoire unlike the majority of her contemporaries ("yéyés"), who sang adaptations of Anglo-Saxon hits. However, under the immense weight of this team of music veterans, Gall would struggle to defend her choice of repertoire. This became a problem and left her with very bad memories to this day. Sacha Distel (January 29, 1933–July 22, 2004) was a French singer who had hits such as Raindrops Keep Falling On My Head and Scoubidou. He was born in Paris. ...

In addition to her father's songs, her success in the 1960s was built on songs written by the biggest names among the French composers and lyricists: Gérard Bourgeois, Jean-Pierre Bourtayre, Vline Buggy Pierre Cour, Joe Dassin, Jacques Datin, Pierre Delanoë, Jean Dréjac, Alain Goraguer, Hubert Giraud, Georges Liferman, Guy Magenta, Eddy Marnay, Jean-Michel Rivat, Jean-Max Rivière, Frank Thomas, Maurice Vidalin, André Popp, Gilles Thibaut, Jean Wiener.

As the first child-woman of the French music world, she would often be given to sing stereotyped lyrics of a teenager as seen by adults. However it is Serge Gainsbourg who will most dubiously promote her as the "French Lolita". The elaborate orchestrations of Alain Goraguer will blend the style, permitting her to navigate effortless between jazz, children's songs and anything in between: Witness Jazz à gogo (lyrics by Robert Gall and music by Goraguer), Mes premières vraies vacances, by Datin-Vidalin.

1965, the year of all the hits

Having previously resisted, Gall gave in to the demands of her managers at the end of 1964, and reluctantly recorded a single intended for children. The song Sacré Charlemagne, whose lyrics were penned by her father to the music of George Liferman, was an enormous hit in 1965, selling more than 2 million copies around the world. It sold across Europe to Africa and Japan, but passed the United States by.

Eurovision

Gall is then selected to represent Luxembourg for the Eurovision Song Contest. Out of the 10 songs proposed to her, she chose the Gainsbourg penned Poupée de cire, poupée de son[1]. March 20, 1965, the 3 G's (Gainsbourg-Gall-Goraguer) attended the Contest in Naples, where the song was booed during rehearsals. Although she delivered the song with a wobbly voice, the singularity of the song astonishes the jury, and she is elected Grand Prize-winner[2]. Success depasses the European borders and Gall will record the song in no less than 5 languages, including Japanese.

Summer tour

France Gall leaves for a tour in France for several months with "the Circus of France" in the summer of ’65 whilst she continuously garner hits written by Gainsbourg, namely Attends ou va-t'en ("Wait for me, or get lost") and, at the end of the year, Nous ne sommes pas des anges ("We are not Angels"). She also charted the hit song Amérique by Eddy Marnay and Guy Magenta.


Cinematic false-starts

After a TV film directed by Jean-Christophe Averty and dedicated to the songs of Gall was distributed in the United States in 1965, Gall was sought by Walt Disney to appear as Alice in a musical version in Alice in Wonderland, after having already made Alice into a cartoon in 1951. Although Gall had insisted she did not want to be in cinema, this is the only cinematographic project which appealed to Gall. Unfortunately, the idea disappears on Disney's death on December 15 1966.

In 1996, she solicits Jean-Luc Godard, whose film Nouvelle vague (1990) she particularly liked, and asked him to produce the video clip of her song "Plus haut" following the release of her album " France".

1966, pops, lollipops and flops

At the beginning of 1966 she puts out Baby pop, a new hit song written by Gainsbourg, the text of which Gall once described as "brutal" but whose dark undertones are not easily heard when sung by this 18 year-old girl. However, her next song would start a wind of scandal which would grow by the month: Gainsbourg had deliberately written the song les Sucettes ("Lollipops"), with double-meanings and strong sexual innuendoes, and the public furore would throw Gall’s career off-track for years. This song, although a big hit, sits in stark contrast to the innocent songs on the same album such as Je me marie en blanc ("White Wedding") and Ça me fait rire ("It makes me laugh").

Les Sucettes song (from French the lollipops) is one of France Galls most important hits along with Poupée de Cire, Poupée de Son, both written by Serge Gainsbourg. ...


At the same time, Gall appeared in the television film Viva Morandi, made in the same psychoanalytical mould as the (1965) Federico Fellini film Juliet of the Spirits. She plays "La Grâce" alongside Christine Lebail who plays "La Pureté", both singing Les Sucettes (prominently labelled "Fantasy"). These contradictory interpretations of les Sucettes caused considerable unease. Gall is not left unscathed: she belatedly understood that she had been used: the song was deliberately conceived with the aim of attracting publicity. All her records which followed, even expunged of the Gainsbourg signature, would be suspiciously viewed as having crass commercial motivations. Her song dedicated to John Fitzgerald Kennedy Jr., Bonsoir John John would be tarred with accusations of necrophilia. Sullied by her association with Gainsbourg, her songs fail to chart for a long time afterwards. // Events Top grossing films North America Mary Poppins The Sound of Music, starring Julie Andrews Goldfinger My Fair Lady Whats New Pussycat?

Even some of her children’s songs recorded in 1966, for example, Les Leçons particulières ("private lessons"), have not been spared pernicious assumptions. It was not helpful when Jean-Christophe Averty corrosively choreographed a troupe of men on all fours to illustrate her children's song J'ai retrouvé mon chien ("I’ve found my dog") on his television program Les Raisins verts ("Green grapes").


Baby shark, LSD and decline

At the beginning of the year 1967, she sang a duet with Maurice Biraud. La Petite, which evokes a young girl coveted by a friend of her father, will drag her to new lows, thus eclipsing Gainsbourg’s poetic Néfertiti.

Her next single would be recorded with the orchestration of English composer David Whitaker. New authors, Frank Thomas and Jean-Michel Rivat, were brought in. They wrote Baby requin (Baby shark), a song which met with some success for Gall. This was followed by Teenie Weenie Boppie, an anti-LSD song by Gainsbourg, which was a huge flop. Gainsbourg then sang anti-capital punishment song in tandem with Gall, Qui se souvient de Caryl Chessman? ("Anyone remember Caryl Chessman?"), after the death row prisoner, but this song never saw the light of day[3]. Her next record Toi que je veux, again with Whitaker, also stalls.

German career

Although struggling in her home country, Gall would regularly record in Germany from 1966 to 1972, in particular with the composer and orchestrator Werner Müller. She would have a successful German career with songs by Horst Buchholz and Giorgio Moroder: Love, l'amour und liebe (1967), Hippie, hippie (1968), Ich liebe dich, so wie du bist (1969) and Mein Herz kann man nicht kaufen (1970). Some of her other Germanic successes include: Haifischbaby (Baby shark) , Die schönste Musik, die es gibt, Was will ein Boy (1967), A Banda (Zwei Apfelsinen im Haar), DER Computer NR 3 (1968), I like Mozart (1969), Komm mit mir nach Bahia, Miguel (1972). For all her German success, many Germans would believe for a long time that Gall was one of their own.

New label, new beginnings

She had several other releases in France in 1968, none of which aroused any great interest. At the end of 1968, on attaining the age of 21, Gall would separate from Denis Bourgeois and stretch her wings upon the expiry of her contract with Philips.

She moves to a new record label, "La Compagnie", born from the association of artists Hugues Aufray, Nicole Croisille and Michel Colombier. At "La Compagnie", Gall made a number of recordings, but she never succeeded in finding a coherent style with Norbert Saada as Artistic Director. She went her own way in 1969 with two adaptations: one Italian and the other British: L'Orage / La Pioggia) ("The Storm") which she sang with Gigliola Cinquetti at the 1969 San Remo Music Festival, and Les Années folles ("Gentlemen Please"), created by Barbara Ruskin.

The early seventies continued to be a barren period for Gall. Although she was the first artist to be recorded in France for Atlantic Records in 1971, despite prestigious authors C'est cela l'amour (1971) and Chasse neige (1971), faltered in the charts. In 1972, Gall returns to see Gainsbourg, who wrote Frankenstein and Les Petits ballons, which she recorded for the label EMI-Pathé, which also fail. Teaming up with Jean-Michel Rivat as artistic director, 5 minutes d'amour (1972) and Par plaisir or Plus haut que moi (1973) all disappointed.

Berger (the Shepherd)

France Gall was seduced by Michel Berger’s music when she heard his song Attends-moi ("Wait for Me") one day in 1973. During a later radio broadcast, she would ask him for his opinion on songs which her then producer would like her to record. Although he was disconcerted by the quality of the songs, there would be no question of collaboration. Michel Berger (28 November 1947, Neuilly-sur-Seine - 2 August 1992, Ramatuelle), born Michel-Jean Hamburger, was a french author-composer-singer. ...

Only 6 months later, in 1974, after she sang vocals on the song Mon fils rira du rock'n'roll on Berger's new album, Gall's publisher asked him, at her behest, to write for her. Gall had already made her mind up that "It will be him or else it will be nobody" (documentary France 3 France Gall by France Gall). Thus, in 1974, La Déclaration d'amour was to be the first in a long line of hits which marked a turning point in Gall’s career.

France's early career was also much aided by her encounter with the legendary singer/songwriter Serge Gainsbourg.
France continued to perform her late husband's repertoire at every opportunity, participating in countless gala tributes held in Berger's honour, where she was joined on stage by the couple's closest showbiz friends.
