Yé-yé ( /ˈyɛˈyɛ/) was a style of pop music that emerged out of France, Quebec and Spain in the early 1960s. The term "yé-yé" derived from "yeah! yeah!"

Bébé requin (Baby Shark), a song which met with some success for Gall. This was followed by Teenie Weenie Boppie, an anti-LSD song by Gainsbourg, which was a huge flop. Gainsbourg then sang an anti capital punishment song in tandem with Gall, Qui se souvient de Caryl Chessman? death row prisoner, but this song never saw the light of day.
