"Je voulais te dire que je t'attends" is a ballad song originally recorded in 1976 by the French singer Michel Jonasz. It was covered by The Manhattan Transfer in 1978 on the album Pastiche (fourth track),[1] by Isabelle Boulay, Maurane and Patrick Bruel in 2001 for Les Enfoirés' album L'Odysée des Enfoirés,[2] and by Hoda, Lucie and Sofiane, three contestants of the French version of Star Academy 4 whose cover is available on the 2004 album Les Meilleurs Moments.[3]

The most famous cover version was that of Belgian singer Jonatan Cerrada in 2003, the only one that was released as a single, which achieved a great success in Belgium (Wallonia), France and Switzerland. The song was the debut single for the singer from his album Siempre 23, on which it features as fourth track.[4]
