Marie-Claire has an annoying tendency to mix everything...
Buzy, whose real name is Marie-Claire Girod, is a French singer who started her artistic career through tap dancing, a discipline she will teach and which earned her the role of Columbia in the Rocky Horror Picture Show.
Everything accelerates in 1980 when she is noticed by Etienne Roda-Gil who sees in her a potential singer and who signs her in stride. This allows her to release in 1981 his first single "Dislexique", single which will make a real success and sell more than 500,000 copies ! The album "Insomnies" from which it is extracted came out the same year.
In 1983 the album "Adrian" was released, which offered her two new hits with the singles "Adrenaline" and "Adrian", the latter being carried by a high-flying clip which greatly contributed to his success.
Two years later in 1985 released the album "I love you Lulu" in tribute to Serge Gainsbourg, album which will mainly produce the single of the same name.
But he had to wait until 1986 to see her experience a new notorious success thanks to the enormous "Body physical", the flagship single of her discography which will work particularly in Germany and Japan.
Notable success which will be the last despite the release of other titles thereafter.
To discover or rediscover.

1981 ... the title of the revelation and what a title ! Typical sound of the early 80s, this title will be one of the biggest hits of that year and of the 80s short on the French side. We couldn't have asked for a better start. HU-GE !
1983 ... after a literally shattering start, the rest will prove to be much less inspired. Can and must do better !
1983 ... well, it was enough to be patient. Back in force with this title much more up to the talent of the young woman. Phew, we were afraid !
1985 ... single tribute to a certain Lucien. She doesn't love him either. Definitely, he will have had them all !
1986 ... she does it again the following year with this nice Intimist title, very simple but of formidable efficiency. Definitely, she has him in the skin !
1986 ... then here comes the title of the ultimate consecration, the one that makes her fit definitively in the musical legend of the 80s on the French side. MAS-TER-FUL !
1987 ... another title with certain quality. A multi-faceted and multi-talented artist who will undoubtedly remain one of the best artists of her generation
1989 ... this time with finesse, she provides in all areas. An obvious talent that has literally exploded throughout the decade !
1989 ... the year of the keep cool attitude. Two magnificent Intimist titles back to back, what more could you ask for !
1990 ... as good artists of his generation, the 1990s will prove to be ruthless in terms of competition. Difficult to fight with new musical trends that are gradually taking hold ...
1993 ... everything has changed, the style as well as the sound, but unfortunately that will not be enough. And this despite a title with more than certain quality ...
1994 ... a decade of 90 that will see her gradually disappear from radars. Her obvious good will will not avoid the sinking unfortunately ...
1999 ... almost 20 years after her debut, the singer resists against all odds. But it blows stronger and stronger. How to resist in these conditions ..
2000 ... she resists rather well in any case. Certainly the best years are now behind her but what she continues to offer is far from devoid of interest, that's clear...
2005 ... she will disappear from the radar for almost 5 years and here she is back in a form that we will qualify as certain. Certain but insufficient to return to the race...
2006...her main problem now is that she is losing her voice over the years. It will therefore become more and more complicated for her, it is clear...
2006...a pretty title full of finesse where she pushes the song with Daniel Darc. When 2 former glories of the 80s simply have fun...
2010... the air holes are multiplying but she comes back again and again. A desire to believe in it to the end which undoubtedly commands respect...
2010...we imagine that she necessarily takes pleasure in doing what she does, otherwise she would have thrown in the towel a long time ago. Who would complain...
2010...the only thing that could really stop her would be losing her voice forever. For the moment there is enough left to continue the adventure...
2019...this time the air hole will last almost 9 years. We could have imagined that she would not survive it but it was very bad to know her because here she is again...
2019...new duo with certain quality. All on a title where the singer wants to send a message about the future of the planet in a way that is obvious to say the least...
2019...so, will this title be the last ? We now know that with her, everything is possible. If the voice still holds a little, there is a good chance that we will find her at some point or another...
