1,2,3...




Catherine Ferry is a French singer whose artistic career really started on April 3, 1976, when she represented France at the Eurovision Song Contest with the title "1,2,3".


A remarkable and remarkable performance since she finished 2nd in particular thanks to the vocal support of its 4 choristers including a certain…Daniel Balavoine. A Daniel Balavoine then totally unknown and with whom she will live as a couple for 4 years between 1973 and 1977.


A shattering success but short-lived success because everything that came out until the end of the 1970s had only mixed success.


Although she no longer lives in a relationship with Daniel Balavoine, the singer will continue to work with her, especially in the early 80s and try to raise the bar. Whether it was on the track "Bonjour, bonjour" in 1982 or on the album "Vivre avec la musique" in 1984. Unfortunately, even the singer's extraordinary talent did not produce a miracle.


After the singer's death in 1986, she received help from another musical genius, Jean-Jacques Goldman, on the track "Quelqu'un quelque part". Without further results.


Then it was Robert Fitoussi (FR David), accompanied by Dany Darras, who took up the torch in 1988 on the title "Manille" in particular. A last title which will unfortunately meet the same fate as the others.


To discover or rediscover.

Clips :


1975 ... a light, playful and airy title as we knew so well during this decade. Bodes well for the rest of the events ...



1976 ... then THIS title comes ! The title of a lifetime, the one that makes you fit One Shot into musical legend and offers you a direct ticket to posterity. Especially when you have a certain ... Daniel Balavoine as a chorus-singer. MAS-TER-FUL !



1977 ... still light and airy. Unfortunately, it's difficult to bounce back when you have had an enormous success like on the previous title ...



1978 ... big caliber ballad that shows all its versatility. A multi-faceted singer who asks only to do well !



1979 ... very simple songs, just like the melodies, but formidably effective. An undeniable know-how in all-terrain song !



1980 ... over the carelessness of the 70s, here comes the 80s and its new musical standards. Standards to which she has adapted, that's clear. It remains to be seen whether this will be enough to keep her in the big leagues ...



1982 ... we immediately recognize the Balavoine style. A easily recognizable style which will work wonderfully for him, but which unfortunately will never benefit the singer. Cruel paradox ...



1983 ... she will have tried everything but she will never have succeeded in finding her place in the 1980s. And yet, she will not have missed much ...



1984 ... it just missed a title on inspiration a little above average to land at least 1 notorious hit. A hit that could have made all the difference and created the momentum after which she will have run throughout the decade ...



1984 ... we find Daniel Balavoine at the controls of this track. But once again, his musical genius will not reverse the trend. When it doesn't want, it doesn't ...



1986 ... she will have collaborated with the best composers of the decade and of the end of the twentieth century, quite simply, a great feat. Without this allowing her to touch the stars, go figure ...



1989 ... she will never be unworthy, far from it. His whole career is paved with titles of obvious quality composed for the most part by the best composers of the moment. And yet she will never have managed to find a place in the sun as she should have. Hard law of the trade ...
