French pop singer M. Pokora, from the city of Strasbourg in the north-east of the country, jumps into the chart at #7 with "Cette année-là" ("This Year"). This is his tenth trip into the top ten in his homeland; he topped the list back in 2008 with "Dangerous". You can hear the interpolation of the Four Seasons' "December 1963 (Oh What A Night)" in the melody...
