"Les Champs-Élysées" is a 1969 song by French-American singer Joe Dassin. It is a French adaptation of "Waterloo Road", written the previous year in English by the British songwriting team of composer Mike Wilsh and lyricist Mike Deighan. While "Waterloo Road" enjoyed modest success, "Les Champs-Élysées" entered charts in multiple European countries (more on Wikipedia).

The Avenue des Champs-Élysées needs no introduction. A fixture on the list of the French capital’s top attractions, it is visited each day by nearly 300,000 people, who come to admire its majestic monuments, enjoy a shopping spree, or get caught up in the excitement of the major festive events that are organized here. There’s always something going on here, along the world’s most beautiful avenue, by day or by night (more on Paris official website).
