Noir c'est noir

This is the one of the biggest hits of french rock'and'roll star Johnny Hallyday, who is farely unknown outside of France, but in his home is big pop-icon.

You will see that we have pages for Johnny Hallyday, both for songs and albums. The region maps on those pages does emphasise how important he is in France and how little impact he has had elsewhere.

On his songs page "Noir C'est Noir" is listed as being his third highest song.

We have put a comment at the top of this page, so readers can see the link you point out. However this has to be done on a case by case basis, there is obviously no easy way to automatically identify songs or albums that have similar titles in other languages.

Thanks for the input
