France Gall, born 1942 in Paris, started her career in the early 1960s, assisted by her parents' acquaintance Serge Gainsbourg and promptly won the Grand Prix Eurovision for Luxembourg in 1965 with her song "Poupée de cire, poupée du son". After winning Eurovision, she left for Germany, recording a number of German language songs in the years between 1966 to 1973, scoring some moderate hits in the German charts.



France Gall later went back to France and disappeared into relative obscurity until 1987, where she managed what she didn't achieve in her earlier German-language career - a Number 1 hit in Germany, this time sung in French. Her song "Ella elle l'a" (a song about Ella Fitzgerald) reached the top of the charts in Germany and Austria in May 1988, as well as scoring number 2 in France.
