"Un garçon pas comme les autres (Ziggy)" (meaning "A Boy Unlike the Others (Ziggy)") is a hit song from the "Dion chante Plamondon" album by Céline Dion.

[cite book | author=Glatzer, Jenna| title=Céline Dion: For Keeps | publisher=Andrews McMeel Publishing| year=2005 | id=ISBN 0-7407-5559-5]

" musical in 1978.

Céline Dion recorded this song also in English. It was included on the "Tycoon" compilation in September 1992, which achieved platinum status in France.

There were two similar music videos made for the French and English version (1993). Both of them were directed by Lewis Furey (husband and producer of Quebec actress/singer Carole Laure). The first one can be found on Céline Dion's DVD called "On ne change pas" (2005). The music video features Dion sitting in the bleachers of a stadium and longing for a soccer player who is preoccupied with teammates. At the end, he is walking up to what appears to be a guy in a pullover with a hood over his head. When the hood is removed as they embrace, it is revealed to be Dion.

Live version of "Ziggy" became a part of Dion's later albums: "À l'Olympia", "Live à Paris" and "Au cœur du stade". The song was also featured on two collections: "The Collector's Series, Volume One" and "On ne change pas".

"Ziggy" peaked at number 2 in France and was certified gold for selling 365,000 copies. The song spent almost a year on the chart, including 7 weeks at number 2 position and 18 weeks in the top 10. It was Céline Dion's breakthrough single in France and her biggest hit at that time.

Dion performed this song lately during her 2008-09 Taking Chances Tour.
