:iconcarr0w:
carr0w Featured By Owner Nov 22, 2012
Hello!
I'm studying French right now, and I was wondering, since French music and culture is kind of new to me, if you have any favorite musicians or songs? What are the greatest musicians now and then?

It can be any Genre!

i had exactly the same problem as you :) unfortunately, i could find no french music to suit my taste. after hunting around a bit, i was told that the french do not apparently do alternative rock -___- i was peeved. i study french and german and german music is so good.

sorry to be incredibly unhelpful... but if you miraculously stumble across some french alternative rock please let me know ^u^

I don't know about France, but here in Quebec we're swimming in alt-rock bands. I don't know but the surface- Grim Skunk for a heavier sound, Les Georges Leningrad, Malajube, Karkwa, Les Breastfeeders, Les Colocs, Jean LeLoup. I'm sure there are tons more.

thanks :D i will listen to them. I completely forgot that Canada had french-speaking parts too! I listen to Canadian alt rock a lot already, but only ones with english lyrics so far.

I understand! Well for the moment I mostly listen to French classics, but I'll let you know I find something :), maybe someone here has already posted something? Sadly I haven't had the time to checked all the music here, yet.

Here's a French metal band with supposedly-poetic lyrics. I say poetic because I'm only going off reviews written by people who, unlike me, can actually understand French: [link]

These are classics of French music and I think that you've already heard at least one of these :)
I'm glad to see people like you learning french.

Merci!! :D I love to have some classics on my playlist :)

I love French, It is a very beautiful language! The lessons are so fun, and my teachers are awesome, but we do get alot of homeworks, so it's kind of nice to have a pause and listen to music. It is a little hard sometimes, thou, like, Article partitif, dose not exist in my mother tongue, so sometimes its hard to understand when to use : P .

Thank you :)

(I watch you too, If you don't mind, I liked your art style)

Yeah, french is a very weird language but it also very poetic ( you can say a sentence with a lot of ways). You can try to take a gap year in France, if you want. That's really great to learn.:D

I was waiting for someone to ask that question. Here are a few songs I know (couldn't get the links).


L'amour est bleu - Vicky Leandros

L'oiseau et l'enfant - Marie Myriam

Poupée de cire, poupée de son - France Gall

Tu te reconnaîtras - Anne-Marie David (This one is my favorite!)


These are just a few of the best French songs from the Eurovision Song Contest. They have ALOT of French songs that date all the way back to 1956.
