French yé-yé Françoise Hardy is a singer, actress, astrologer, and fashion icon. She signed her first contract before graduating university in 1961, and the record "Oh Oh Chéri" came out the following year. One of her most popular songs from the '60s is "Tous les Garçons et les Filles" ("All the Boys and Girls"), and it portrays the innocent side of the yé-yé movement, with its lyrics like: "All the guys and girls my age know how it feels to be happy, but I am lonely. When will I know how it feels to have someone?"
