Plastic Bertrand – Ca Plane Pour Moi


Ça plane pour moi” (French pronunciation: ​[sa plan puʁ mwa]) is a 1978 song by Belgian musician Plastic Bertrand, though its vocals were actually performed by Lou Deprijck, the record’s producer and composer.”Jet Boy, Jet Girl“, a song by Elton Motello, has the same backing track that was later used in “Ça plane pour moi”.

The song has been covered by many artists, though Plastic Bertrand’s original recording was the most successful, reaching No. 8 on the UK charts in the summer of 1978. While mainly regarded as a punk song, “Ça plane pour moi” has also been described as parody punk and as new wave. The song’s name is a French idiomatic expression that is best translated as “everything’s going well for me” (literally: “it is gliding for me”).
