French singer France Gall's first single "Ne Sois pas si Bête" ("Don't Be So Stupid") hit the airways on her 16th birthday, and she was only 18 when she recorded one of her biggest hits, "Les Sucettes" ("Lollipops"). The risqué song was written by Serge Gainsbourg and was full of sexual innuendos that France claims she didn't realize until much later, causing her to split from her professional relationship with Serge. France also had a successful career in Germany, and one of her popular songs "Der Computer Nr. 3" (1968) was way ahead of its time — it's about using a computer to find love!
