Charts in France

Except for Jeanny (part 1)(#25 in oct '86), Falco never charted in France! For your information, there was no official charts in France before november '84.

The charts we use are clearly listed on the song chart page. That explains where our data came from and why we use it. That text explains the issues with French chart data, every data source (including the SNEP one) has serious problems but that is not a good reason to ignore the scant information that is available. All of our entries clearly indicate where they came from.

Just because SNEP only started a chart in 1984 does not mean that there were no charts before then. The word "official" is meaningless in this context.

If you feel that the charts used are not "notable" then just ignore those entries.

If you have a source of French charts tell us where we can find it.
