Chansons pour les pieds was a 2001 album by Jean-Jacques Goldman sung in French. The album was recorded at the Théâtre du Cratère d'Alès by Eric Van de Hel and Gildas Lointier, assisted by Renaud Van Welden. All songs were written by the singer himself. Released by JRG, the album met smash success on the charts : it topped the French and Belgian Albums Charts and remained charted for almost two years, and was #2 in Switzerland. As the title ("Songs for the Dance") suggests, all the tracks are devoted to dance and represent music styles (canon chorale, gigue, technoriental, slow, tarentelle, R&B, ballad, disco, rock, slow zouk, fanfare swing, pop).

There was a sole single from this album : "Et l'on y peut rien", which peaked at #7 in France, 37 in Belgium (Wallonia) and #61 in Switzerland.
