If you follow this blog for a few years, you know two things: around the 21st of June, I put up Perfect Summer Song compilation (on Spotify) with just the right songs for your Autoroute du Soleil (wherever that route may lay) pleasure. And 2: The name, Parfait Eté, is a crime against the French language but I just don’t care. So, for the 2024 edition (the 15th compilation) you go HERE

This year, I chose mostly 80s inspired songs, by bands & artists like Le Couleur, Ricky Hollywood, Fishbach, Petit Nuage and Perez. Songs that, to me, sound like the music I heard in the 80s when was sitting on the backseat of my parents car, on our way down the Autoroute du Soleil. Songs French radio played to death, like Rouge et Noir by Jeanne Mas, any Princess Stephanie single, Cargo by by Axel Bauer and anything by Indochine and Niagara. Those days. But then, now.

French girls, singing. No, sighing. Making me sigh. Ah.
