Let's remember him ... ouap, douap ...




Very little information about Philippe Timsit other than the fact that he is a French singer who made his artistic debut as stage manager and lighting designer for Claude François.


But he will be remembered above all for the enormous "Henri Porte des Lilas", his only single of big caliber but which will be enough to make him enter the legends of the 80s.


Like what, 1 title is enough ...


To discover or rediscover.

Clips :


1979 ... quiet beginnings in ballad mode. All in a 70s version. And the voice is already there ...



1980 ... we change the decade but nothing changes in terms of style. We stay in the Intimate area, this time in Ultimate Slow mixed ballad mode. And frankly, it holds up ...



1981 ... then comes THIS title. The title of a lifetime that makes One Shot fit the singer into the musical legend of the 80s. Undeniably one of the flagship titles of the decade on the French singer side



1981 ... simple melodies, without fuss or chacha. Of course, we are far from the top of the French Top50 but whatever ...



1982 ... the tempo suddenly accelerates. Unfortunately, that won't be enough to make it the success of the year ...



1983 ... ouad, douap. The return of Henri. A title which will not know the same success as the original ... But once again, it is nice and it is already that !
