Michel Sardou Life

Michel Charles Sardou (born 26 January 1947) is a French singer, songwriter, and occasional actor. Sardou is best known for his love songs ("La peine d'amour"), "Je vais t'aimer"), colonialism ("Le temps des colonies"), Marxism ("Le pétrole mais c'est tout"), or the death penalty ("Je suis pour").

"Les Ricains" and "Monsieur le President de France," for example, are another frequently discussed topic in his songs.

He has been accused of being a bigote after his 1976 album "Le temps des colonies," in which he sang highly of colonialism and slavery, but Sardou has always said the song was sarcastic.

"Les lacs du Connemara," his 1981 album "Les Lacs Du Connemara" was a worldwide hit (especially in the Netherlands).

A number of his hit songs were written in collaboration with Jacques Revaux and Pierre Delano, a few others (most notably "En chantant") with Italian singer Toto Cutugno. Sardou's debut at Palais Omnisports de Paris-Bercy in 2001 sold out eighteen days in a row, while his 2004 album Du plaisir debuted at number one on the French album charts for the first time.

Sardou has released 25 studio albums, 18 live albums, and has recorded more than 350 songs (not primarily in French but also in Spanish, Italian, and even English) and has sold more than 100 million albums.

He is currently one of the Francophone world's most popular artists and one of the most profitable, both in terms of sales and shows.

Personal life

In 1965, Sardou married Françoise Pettré, a dancer. Sandrine and Cynthia (born on January 15, 1970) and Cynthia (born on December 4, 1973). In 1977, the couple divorced. In October 1977, he married Elizabeth Haas, nicknamed "Babette." Romain, writer (born on January 6, 1974), and Davy, actor (born on June 1, 1978). In June 1999, the couple divorced. Anne-Marie Périer, the daughter of actor François Périer and the sister of photographer Jean-Marie Périer, married on October 11, 1999. She is Elle magazine's former editor-in-chief. They were married in Neuilly-sur-Seine by then-mayor Nicolas Sarkozy.


Michel Sardou Career


Sardou began serving as a waiter in Montmartre's cabaret. He eventually met Michel Fugain and auditioned for Eddie Barclay, but not for long. Sardou's debut on "Le madras" began in 1965, co-written with Michel Fugain and Patrice Laffont, as co-writers.

Sardou's career took off in 1967 thanks to censorship: while France's unified military command and the Vietnam War had ignited anti-American sentiment in France, Sardou's "Les Ricains" (The Yanks) a song that explained the debt to the US for France's liberation of France. Charles de Gaulle did not like the song and was told against having it broadcast on state radio and television. This brought the singer a new sense of fame, and the album enabled him to lay the foundations for his future artistic style. However, he did find it difficult to have big hits from 1967 to 1970.

Eddie Barclay decided to terminate his deal in 1969 after determining that Sardou was not cut out to be a singer. He founded Tréma (which stands for Talar Revaux Musicales Associées), which would produce his music, alongside his colleagues Jacques Revaux (who will be his most faithful composer) and Régis Talar, a French record producer.

He really hit his stride in 1970, when he launched J'habite en France, his first studio album. "Je viva en France" ("To die of pleasure"), "Et mourir de plaisir"), but it was mostly "Les bals populaires" ("Popular Dances") that soared to the top of the French charts, with three songs from this collection becoming hits:

The hits from this album will be uninterrupted into the 1970s. "Le rire du sergent" ("The Sergeant's Laughter") (1971) ("The Inspector") ("The Superintendent") ("The Superintendent") found a following with the public. However, his fame was securing in 1973 with the album La douleur d'amour. Its title track "La maladie de amour"), "Les vieux mariés" ("The old married couple," in English) is included, but "It's not too late to start again") and "Les villes de loneliness" ("The Cities of loneliness") will eventually be huge hits. This last song, on the other hand, caused controversies as Sardou plays a man who drinks heavily about his mundane daily routine (of robbing a bank and raping girls) but never responds. The feminist group MLF had a niggling reaction.

The scandals in 1976 hit their high point with the release of La vieille (The Old Woman). Valéry Giscard d'Estaing, who had just sold the ocean liner SS France, was the first single from it, "Le France" ("SS France" ("SS France). Even though Sardou was seen as an archetypal reactionary singer, the trade unions and the Communist Party supported the tumultuous song as an anti-reactionary artist. And after the album was a hit (more than a million copies were sold), several extracts, such as "J'accuse" ("I charge men of...") or "Le temps des colonies") are about a singer who continues to promotes old conservative values. He has been accused of being a racial and a colonialist critic, but he has always maintained that the song is written in character rather than as an expression of his own opinions. Sardou is depicted in the role of a man in favour of the death penalty because his own son was killed, as the song "Je suis pour..." ("I am in favour of..."). Anti-Sardou protests were launched in the aftermath of this and other political positions held by him; their protests regularly interrupted the singer's tours; however, some left-wingers believed that Sardou was entitled to his expression.

Sardou's next year, in 1977, he stepped away from politics. "La java de Broadway" ("The Java of Broadway"), "Dix ans plus tôt" ("Ten years ago"), and a revival of Claude François' "Comme d'habitude" (the tune of which is most well known to English-speaking audiences as "My Way" is among his new albums). The album was a huge success, exactly like Je vole (1978), which gave him one of his biggest hits, "En chantant" ("Singing"), written in collaboration with Italian singer Toto Cutugno.

The 1980s saw promising omens for the singer, with the release Les lacs du Connemara ("The Lakes of Connemara") and "Being a woman" ("Being a woman").

Sardou had a lot of success throughout the decade, including "Il existe" ("Red") in 1982, "Chanteau de jazz") ("He was there") in 1984, "There was no water" ("In 1982), "There was no water") in 1988, "Chanteau de jazz") ("Jazz Singer") in 1980, "the same water circulating") in 1988, despite the fact that a large number of his contemporaries had been forgotten during the disco" ("Re" ("Redou" ("Re" ("Redou" ("Re" ("Re" ("Re, coule") ("Re" ("Re" ("Re" ("Re" ("Re" ("Re" ("Chant" ("Re" ("Re" ("Re" ("Re" ("Chant" ("Re" ("He" ("Re" ("Red" ("Red" ("Rex coule" ("Red" ("Re" ("Chant) in 1985, "He was coule" ("He was coule") in 1980, coule" ("He was coule" ("Red" ("The same water" ("He was coule") in 1988, coule") in 1980, "He washe" ("He" ("Red") in 1980, coule") in 1980, "Chant" ("He" ("Chant, "HiHis, "He was not coule")

However, he didn't shy away from controversial songs, and in 1983, "Musulmanes" ("Muslim women"), which recalls Lenin's absence from the Soviet Union as a result of the resistance between the free school and the private school as well as the criticism of Muslim women in Islamic countries, but also pays homage to Arabic history.

Sardou earned the respect of his peers by receiving a Music Award for his 1980s hit "Musulmanes" as the year's best song of the year.

And if his four albums had high sales in the 1990s, the hit singles market was dwindled. Sardou performed in Paris in 1989, 1991, 1993, 1998, 2001, and 2001, and the Palais Omnisports de Paris-Bercy packed this tiny stadium for a total of 88 times, with more than 17,000 spectators attending each time. In addition, he holds the most seats and performances for this stadium.

He was named on stage in 1990 and 1999 for the greatest number of spectators at the end of a tour (in 1998, nearly 580,000 people attended him).

Sardou resigned from performing after the album Français (2001) and its promotional tour.

Sardou signed a new album titled Du plaisir in 2004, and he organized an international tour in 2004 and 2005, visiting France, Belgium, Switzerland, and Canada.

The double album Hors format was announced on November 13, 2006, which was the same as the one on November 13, 2006. This collection features twenty-three new songs, one of which is a duet with Chimène Badi, "Le chant des hommes" ("The Song of Men," on the album. "Hors Format" has reached 400,000 copies and is a double platinum. In 2007, he began a new tour, visiting places like the Olympia and the Zénith de Paris. On the date of: 2004-01-01, "Le Blues Black Brothers" was first published.

On the 30th of August 2010, he released the album tre une femme (2010). The DJ Laurent Wolf of his own 1980s hit "tre une femme") and a duet with Céline Dion, "To Fly") are among the tracks. The subsequent tour has met with greater success.

Les grands moments (The Great Moments), a compilation album of his greatest hits, was released on October 22, 2012. Sardou's work appeared in 2012 and 2013 in a show of the same name, showcasing his art from the mid-1960s. The performance was held at the Palais Omnisports de Paris-Bercy for three dates in December 2012 and five at the Olympia in June 2013. Sardou had to cancel the twelve dates due to health issues.

He took lead in a play written specifically for him by Éric-Emmanuel Schmitt in September 2014.
