Early on in his career, at the height of the success of his hit “Alors On Danse” (So We Dance), Stromae used to play a little game with his audiences around the world.  When he raised his arms, the audience would scream at the top of their lungs.  When he lowered them, there was supposed to be “complete silence.”  😉

He called this the “Stromaeometre,” or Stromae-meter.
