"Tu m'oublieras" is a 1998 song recorded by French singer Larusso. It was the second single from her debut album, Simplement, and was released in October 1998. It remains to date Larusso's best single, topping the chart in France and Belgium (Wallonia), and can be deemed as her signature song.

Song information[edit]

The song was originally performed during the 1970s by Régine, Irma Jackson (You Will Forget, 1979), then by Jeane Manson, under the title "Tu oublieras". Yves Dessca, who participated in the composition of the song, had previously written some songs for Michel Sardou and for the Eurovision Song Contest 1971. Unlike the original version, Larusso's cover contains many scats, modern gimmicks and some lyrics in English-language.[1]

In France, the single featured in the top 100 for 42 weeks, from 28 November 1998. It debuted at #34, then climbed almost every week and finally reached number-one on January 31, 1999. It stayed there for 12 weeks, before dropping first slowly, then rather quickly, totalling 26 weeks in the top ten and 38 weeks in the top 50.

To date, it is the 43rd best-selling single of all time in France,[2] and the 6th biggest hit in terms of chart positions.[3]
