Affair with French pop

I have had a love affair with French pop music going for the last 15 years. I know a lot of really bad music comes out of France, but they do also make very special pop music, which contains that very special French flavour and sensual element. That's when things become interesting.

I've been particularly following artists Mylène Farmer, Zazie, Jean-Jacques Goldman and Francis Cabrel. Where the first two are female pop with a twist, the last two are singer-songwriters or troubadours. All are characterised by a very atmospheric and very French flavour. J'aime beacoup!

Take a highly recommended tour:

Mylène Farmer: California

Zazie: Des Rails

Jean-Jacques Goldman: Sache Que Je

Francis Cabrel: Je t'aimais, je t'aime, je t'aimerai
