Claude François – Comme d’habitude (1968). Written by Claude François and Jacques Revaux in 1967, the song was originally recorded by Hervé Vilard. However, Revaux was disappointed with the recording and asked François to re-record it in 1968. François was excited about the recording but adamant they should include the theme of a couple suffering from an oppressive relationship, as a consequence of his hostile breakup with French singer France Gall. The song has been of great inspiration to many writers, most notably Paul Anka, who attained the rights to the song after hearing it in Paris.
