So, Buzzfeed published a list (duh) lining up 50 French Songs You Need To Hear Before You Die (HERE). I agree with it to some extent; if you haven’t heard Brel’s Ne me quitte pas or Trenet’s La Mer, you really need some catching up. But Ophélie Winter? For Me…Formidable by Aznavour? Mireille Mathieu?! I think we can do better. So I’ve made a collaborative Spotify list, 50 French Songs You Need To Hear – The Alternative. You can add as well. If you don’t have Spotify, drop suggestions in the comments. Biolay, Dominique A, Frehel, Gillian Hills, Niagara, Air… please add!
