If I would like to make the best compliment to the singer, it would be: he has his own style.
You hear him singing, and you do not even to know the song - it's Daniel Lavoie.

Allain Leprest

Nu, j'ai vécu nu
Naufragé de naissance
Sur l'île de Malenfance
Dont nul n'est revenu
Nu, j'ai vécu nu
Dans des vignes sauvages
Nourri de vin d'orage
Et de corsages émus
Nu, vieil ingénu
J'ai nagé dans tes cieux
Depuis les terres de feu
Jusqu'aux herbes ténues
Nu, j'ai pleuré nu
Dans la buée d'un miroir
Le cœur en gyrophare
Qu'est-ce qu'on s'aimait... Samu

Nu, j'ai vécu nu
Sur le fil de mes songes
Les tissus de mensonges
Mon destin biscornu
Mais nu, je continue
Mon chemin de tempête
En gueulant a tue-tête
La chanson des canuts
Nu, j'avance nu
Dépouillé de mon ombre
J'voulais pas être un nombre
Je le suis devenu
Nu, j'ai vécu nu
Aux quatre coins des gares
Clandestin d'une histoire
Qui n'a plus d'avenue

Nu, je suis venu
Visiter en passant
Un globule de sang
Un neutron des nues
Nu, le torse nu
Je voudrais qu'on m'inhume
Dans mon plus beau posthume:

«Pacifiste inconnu»
