The most covered French rock song

"La Poupee Qui Fait Non." The original by Michel Polnareff (who weirdly resembled Fisher Stevens) was a hit in 1966. Jimmy Page played the guitar in the session. Then it was covered by The Birds, Jimmi Hendrix and a bunch of other groups up to the present day. The best version is this one by Luna in 2006.

The lyrics are about finding a doll that can only say 'no.' He tried to teach it to say 'yes' but no success. Quell Domage! So maybe it's a song about not scoring but there have been other interpretations as well.

Wikipedia's (incomplete) list of artists who have covered La Vie En Rose has 77 entries.

what about Plastic Bertrand's song... 'Ca Plane Pour Moi' .. ?

I'll bet heaps of bands have covered that song.... and is probably the only French pop song they know from recent times...;)

That's like saying "Typical skinny American" or "ferocious mouse"...
