  • Lyrics
  • Stromae is Paul Van Haver, a songwriter and music college graduate of Belgian and Rwandan extraction. This Euro disco song about dancing to take one's mind off life's problems was one of the biggest hits of 2010 in continental Europe, topping Billboard's pan-European Hot 100 Singles chart for ten weeks. The tune reached #1 in 11 individual European countries, including Belgium, France, The Netherlands and Switzerland. Also in Germany, it became the first French-language single to reach pole position since Vanessa Paradise's "Joe Le Taxi" in 1988.
