"Ça plane pour moi" (French pronunciation: [sa plan puʁ mwa]) is a 1977 pop song song by the Belgian singer Plastic Bertrand. Despite being credited to him, the vocals were actually performed by the record's producer, Lou Deprijck. The song was composed by Yvan Lacomblez. "Jet Boy, Jet Girl", an adaptation recorded in November 1977 by Elton Motello, has the same melody. The song was covered by many artists, though Plastic Bertrand's original recording was the most successful, reaching no.8 on the UK charts in the summer of 1978.
"Ça plane pour moi" is a French idiomatic expression which is best translated as "Everything's going well for me" (literally: "It is gliding for me").
