Not much information about Philippe Lafontaine other than the fact that he is a Belgian singer-songwriter.
Singer who will remain mainly in the musical history of the 80s for the high-caliber single "Cœur de loup" released in 1989.
As such alone, he deserved this article.

1980 ... a smooth start that already highlights a more than obvious potential. It remains to be seen what this young singer will propose next ...
1982 ... a predisposition for the Intimist which is confirmed title after title. Nothing exceptional for the moment but a good job, quite simply ...
1983 ... the tempo accelerates slowly but surely. Here he delivers a light and airy title that smells of the Caribbean and especially the hot sand ...
1985 ... even if the qualitative level is certain, he still cannot manage to release THE title which could set him apart from the crowd. We will therefore have to be a little more patient ...
1985 ... and yet there really isn't much missing. Everything is there, the style that goes well, just like the sound. It just remains to find the little extra that will make all the difference ...
1987 ... the Intimist fits him like a glove, it is clear once again. And yet, paradoxically, it is not in this area that he will win the cup ...
1989 ... then THIS title comes ! Finally, the title of the consecration. All thanks to this perfectly calibrated Dance title which will give him its direct ticket to posterity. MAS-TER-FUL !
1990 ... the 1980s saw him hatch and then explode. What does the 90s have in store for him, good question. Either way, he starts it off in the best possible way with this sumptuous track that literally floats in the air !
1992 ... unfortunately, the fall will be severe. He will not have been able to adapt to new trends and his style, even if he remains sympathetic, is no longer able to compete on equal terms with the competition now ...
1993 ... the adventure continues anyway. Rightly or wrongly, that's something else. The future will tell if it was worth believing again ...
1994 ... unfortunately, the miracle will not take place. The decade advances without the singer being able to hang up the cars. From now on, it is a solitary race that awaits him ...
1994 ... he does not demerit, far from it. But in a decade where the rhythms border on the speed of light, his soft rhythms can only marginalize him irremediably ...
1995 ... a nice track full of finesse which simply feels good. Afterwards, do not expect a miracle on the Charts side with such special titles ...
1995 ... a great adventure which comes to an end with this title. In the end, a busy career with the production of a very high-caliber track which at least allowed him to leave a significant mark in the musical history of the end of the 20th century. What more !
