This man has a fever in his blood ...



By his real name Alain Le Govic, Alain Chamfort will stay in history as one of the most gifted artists of his generation and the 80s. Despite a rather slow start in the 60s where he went from group to group without real success, it was by collaborating in certain ways with a certain Jacques Dutronc that he knew his first successes. Then it was with Claude François, 2nd mentor (he was the one who found his stage name, namely Chamfort), that his career took off. But it was a third meeting, that with Serge Gainsbourg, which propelled him to the top of the hit parade with, in 1979, the release of the now cult ‘Manureva’, of which Gainsbourg signed the lyrics. A decade of hits will follow, including the now famous Bamboo, Ivory Hunter, Paradise, Good kisses from here, Rendez-vous, Traces de toi, Fever in the blood, Smile since it's serious ... Still active today, Alain Chamfort unfortunately surfed on chess like many "colleagues" of the time. Either way, her sweet pop melodies will continue to ring wonderfully in our ears for decades to come ... Discography (among others ...) :

Clips :

1972 ... the particularly promising beginnings of a young boy who will become one of the greatest singers of the years to come. But at this point, no one knows yet. Not even him ...

1973 ... he returns a year later with a crazy, light and airy title as we knew so well in the 70s. What a blessed time !



1973 ... it's fresh, it's marshmallow, but what does it feel good ! And it looks very strangely like Patrick Juvet ...



1974....the title of the true revelation. A title that will forever change the destiny of the singer but at this stage he does not necessarily know it...



1974 ... he now connects hits at a staggering speed. Few at that time were able to produce as many high-quality titles in such a short time ...



1974 ... his first big romantic ballad. We can already see the boy's full potential in this area. And the best is yet to come !



1975 ... in the same vein, he signed in the process a luxury revival of the legendary title of Barry Manilow "Could it be magic". Title itself from Prelude N ° 20 Opus 28 by Fréderic Chopin !



1975...and here we go again for light and aerial titles. What talent ! Nothing and no one can stop him and it will go on like this for a few more years...



1975 ... and it rocks seriously ! Another super fresh track against a background of Bossa Nova rhythm. We want more ...



1976...an Intimist title this time with a jazzy influence. And again, it works ! Anyway, when luck is there, whatever we do, everything works !



1978...an inspiration that never falters and produces magnificent titles in this style. A title that precedes another that will literally explode the notoriety of the young singer...



1979 ... the HUGE intergalactic hit which makes him definitively enter the musical legend of the XXth century on the French side. Surely one of the biggest Dance hits of the decade and of this end of the century, all on the French side. Thanks WHO ? Thank you Gainsbourg !



1980 ... the first WONDER. The confirmation of an extraordinary talent and inspiration. A change of decade perfectly negotiated. MA-GNI-FI-CENT !



1980 ... and what about that one. As long as this song lasts, time stands still, suspended like magic ...



1981 ... back to Dance with a new mega hit which confirms the status of the star of the moment for this singer, who is decidedly out of the ordinary...



1981 ... the WONDERS follow one another at an impressive speed ! Surely one of the biggest suppliers of pure emotions of the 80's...



1981... an incredible inspiration constantly renewed and which always hits the mark. The singer has become in just a few years a real phenomenon, it is clear...



1982 ... the years go by, Premium quality is constant. Admittedly, he does not have the voice of a Johnny, but on the compositions side, he will really remain as one of the very best !



1982 ... of the dance class XXXL hit. Hyper versatile, it is good in all areas. And that is not given to everyone !



1983...in the same vein. Always so effective, the Dancefloors still remember it ! A know-how in this field among the most effective of the moment, that's for sure...



1986 ... a new Ultimate Slow of very large caliber. More than 15 years after the singer's first steps, it is clear that he is still on top !



1986...one last big Dance hit for the road. This time, the machine does indeed begin to slow down. But don't worry at this stage, the adventure is far from over...



1987...certainly, it's over on the Dance hits side, but on the Intimist song side, it's far from over. The proof once again with this title !



1990 ... new decade change. After going through the 70s and 80s, here comes the 90s. And still there !



1990...still there and still so inspired in high-caliber ballads. He surely do not intend to stop there and still have things to offer and especially to sing !



1990 ... we thought he was out of breath on the Dance rhythms. What a mistake ! The proof with this title which runs at 200 km/h !



1993...another title of certain quality which shows us that the animal is far from finished. Then we're not going to lie to each other, the best years are now behind...



1993 ... he is already in his third decade of career and continues to deliver absolutely sumptuous titles to us. What talent !



1997...an adventure that goes on and on. It is out of the question for him to leave the stage without fighting until the end. We have been warned !



1997...he won't have any more major successes but what he continues to offer is far from being ridiculous. In any case, we will largely be satisfied with what he now offers...



1998 ... the end of a decade that rhymes with the title delirium, a story to show that ridicule does not kill, far from it ...



2003...and here he is entering its 4th decade. He will begin to convey subliminal messages in these titles and especially to settle certain scores with people he considers harmful...



2003...the hardest thing for him now is to manage to situate himself in this era. Should he stick stupidly to the latest musical trends of the moment or does he keep his freedom of writing ? Good question...



2003... he is sure that with this kind of song he is not likely to attract more than that the younger generations. Young generations who want noise and a boosted tempo, which is not really the case with this title...



2010...we will lose sight of him for almost 7 years and here he is back in this new decade of 2010. So, a winning comeback or a losing comeback ? The future will tell us...



2010... what is certain is that he did not really succeed in positioning himself on the new French music scene during the 2000s. Not sure that he manages to do better during this new decade...



2012...a timeless style that he particularly likes but which de facto marginalizes him. Doing what you love is good but doing what others love is also important and there, at his level, he blocks...



2015...we feel like a desire to evolve a little. But the lag behind the competition is such that he will never be able to catch up with the leading pack...



2015...this time the evolution is obvious, both in terms of sound and style. Why didn't he perform this maneuver long before because it could have been a real game-changer...



2015...a mid-decade 2010 which sees him find a level of inspiration worthy of the name. Like what, as always, in music, nothing is ever over as long as you believe in it a little bit...



2018...in the end a great decade 2010 but which paradoxically did not allow him to be talked about more than that. Difficult to exist at the highest level when you come from the 70s...



2018...another title that deserved to be highlighted a little more like most of its titles of the decade. But when it no longer wants, it no longer wants...



2018...yet another example. At 69, the singer shows in a dazzling way that when you have talent, you keep it until the end. Let this be a lesson to younger generations...



2021...new title for new decade. Always and again there and determined not to let go of anything as always. So we imagine that the adventure is far from over...
