Françoise Hardy is the first studio album by the French popular singer Françoise Hardy. Like many of Hardy's earlier albums, it was released with no title, except for her name on the cover. The album has therefore colloquially become known by the title of its most successful song, "Tous les garçons et les filles".

The twelve tracks were also released on three four-track Vogue EP’s in 1962:

  • "J'suis d'accord" / "Tous les garçons et les filles" Contact avec Françoise Hardy Vogue EPL 7967[2]
  • "Ça A Raté" / "Le Temps De L'Amour" / "J'Ai Jeté Mon Cœur" / "C'Est L'Amour Auquel Je Pense" Vogue EPL 8047
  • "La Fille Avec Toi" / "Il Est Tout Pour Moi" / "On Se Plait" / "Ton Meilleur Ami" Vogue EPL 8048

In the United States, the album was released in 1966 under the title The "Yeh-Yeh" Girl From Paris!.
