1982 ... a start on the hats of wheel with this wacky title. The trend is given, it will be Free Style !
1985 ... but it is THIS title which will make them fit One Shot into the musical history of the 80s on the French side. It is always as wacky but this time, the melody and the vocal trio, are of a level much higher than the previous song. And it works perfectly !
1986 ... it's still so light and airy but the mayonnaise doesn't set every time. Pity...
1986 ... in the same vein. It's nice but it's not enough to make the difference, let alone create an event
1987 ... they try it all with this luxury association with singer Tippa Irie. It's very nice once again but too out of step with the current musical trend which is very Dance oriented ... Not easy to do in the original, they will have learned it at their expense ...
