Reading now: 952

Françoise Hardy, a popular French singer and actor who had numerous Top 10 albums and singles in Europe and appeared in films including Grand Prix, has died June 11 at 80.

Her son, Thomas DuTronc, revealed the news on social media but did not provide details, writing only, “Maman est partie” (mom is gone).

Hardy was diagnosed with cancer 20 years ago and had been in declining health. She broke out with the 1962 hit “Tous les garçons et les filles,” which topped the singles charts in her homeland and several other countries.

She followed that with a second French No. 1, “C’est à l’amour auquel je pense,” later that year. Known for her melancholic style, Hardy epitomized the “yé-yé” wave.
