French charts update

Popstars winner Sheryfa Luna remains at the top of the French singles chart. Another pop-r’n’b singer to add to what is already becoming a crowded market in France. Is it just me or is "Quelque Part" a little reminiscent of "Genie In A Bottle"?

Unfortunately Fatal Bazooka aren’t going away but I still don’t get the joke. "Parle A Ma Main" is no. 2 this week. Jenifer is at no.4 with her comeback single "Tourner Ma Page" which failed to reach no.1. Another former no.1, Koxie’s "Garcon" is no.5. Things still not moving very quickly in the French singles chart then.

It’s that time of the year when...France’s most famous Christmas song,."Petit Papa Noel" by Tino Rossi is exhumed yet again and is back at no.10 in the French chart. I won’t scoff though because the UK chart is about to be overrun once more with "Christmas classics"!

Over in the album chart, it's same-old, same-old. Johnny Hallyday's latest album "Le Coeur d'Un Homme" is at the top with Christophe Willem's "Mon Paradis" still doing very well at no. 2. Florent Pagny's "Pagny Chante Brel" is also in the top 5. Christophe Willem's excellent "Inventaire" is climbing the chart again thanks to the success of "Jacques a Dit".
