Clips :


1984 ... a first quality title which already shows more than certain potential. It remains to be seen what the young singer will do with this famous potential in the years to come ...



1985 ... she confirms a year later that there is every reason to continue believing in her. But still no classified title for the moment ...



1986 ... it still does not want to take off despite all her efforts. She is far from demerit, it is clear but faced with a competition that does not give any freebie, she really struggles to stand out from ordinary people ...



1988 ... nothing helps, for the big takeoff, it will not be for this decade. We will therefore have to wait the following decade to hope for a miracle ...



1991 ... and the miracle, here it is ! A single title, THIS title, was enough to see her finally rewarded for all her efforts of the previous decade and obtain her direct ticket to posterity. A well-deserved reward. HU-GE !



1991 ... she delivers here a title which literally floats in the air and which shows that she is good in all the fields. Unfortunately, in a decade where everything is moving at the speed of light, this kind of title can hardly find a place in the sun ...



1992 ... unfortunately she failed to capitalize on the enormous suction effect generated by "J'ai des doutes" and slowly but surely falls back to the level of notoriety that she had in the 80s...



1992 ... and yet it is not for lack of trying and putting good will into it. But the world of song is ruthless and we disappear as quickly as we appeared. Hard law of the trade ...



1993 ... an attraction for Asia omnipresent in its titles and this since the beginning. A hint of exoticism always welcome but which unfortunately will not change the situation ...



1993 ... Sara Mandiano or Mylène Farmer ? The resemblance is disturbing, as much in the way of singing as in the melody. A title which would have been a hit with Mylène then at the height of her glory and which will go unnoticed with Sara at the bottom of the wave. Destiny when you hold us, no need to fight ...
