He began his career in the cabarets of the postwar Left Bank before making his name in the 1960s and 70s with a succession of lyrical love songs and political chansons, one of which was banned from French television.

Among his best-known songs were "La Montagne" (The Mountain), "Potemkine," "Ma France" and "La femme est l'avenir de l'homme" (Woman is the future of man). He was also known for his adaptations of works by the communist poet Louis Aragon.
