Trivia:

After a break-up with singer France Gall in 1967, he was very depressed. In order to help, Jacques Revaux, a friend of his, proposed him a little melody. With Revaux and Gilles Thibault, he wrote the lyrics about a failing couple, destroyed by their usual life habits. It was titled "Comme d'habitude". A little time later, the song had an English version: "My Way". See more »
