* EurovisionSongContest: He wrote France Gall's entry "Poupée de Cire, Poupée de Son" which brought a victory for Luxembourg (their second) in 1965. It is also notable for being the first winning song in the contest not to be a ballad.
** He also wrote Monaco's entry in 1967, "Boum Badaboum", though not as popular as "Poupée".
** One of his last songs was the 1990 French entry "White and Black Blues". It placed second, the best placing for the country since their last win in 1977, and (along with Spain's entry that year) started a trend of ESC entries with national elements, a trend that continues to this day.
