    i want to know the name of the French band that sang a pop song in the movie, Scene of the Crime (1986) with Catherine Deneuve. It is at her nightclub in the movie when this song is played. Can’t find it for the hell of me…hope you have more luck! Thx M

    What is the song played at the disco Krypton when he is doing his own investigation and seeing Ange with Gaëtan ‘Tany’ Zampa? It´s not in the soundtrack.

    • Ro says:

      @Vidar Smith: That’s another club owned by Zampa. The Kryton will be opened later in the movie.
      The track which is playing while Pierre Michel enters the club and sees Ange with Gaëtan Zampa is Love to Fly by Venus Gang.

    Can’t find the details of the song at start of end-titles of La French 2014. I believe I saw somthing like “She’s mine”, but it is not the famous one.
