I listened to "Quelqu'un M'a Dit" and it was history. A couple days later I went to Rome and bought her CD and it's been a regular on my playlist ever since. Quelqu'un M'a Dit is completely in French and has a soft melodious sound that's sometimes melancholic (in a good way) that will lull you into a state of tranquility. The genre is considered folk/rock/jazz. FYI: Carla Bruni is married to Nicolas Sarkozy, the French President. Girl got the moves, she wasn't a model/actress for nothin.

  • I don't know what she's singing about but I just listened to it 3 times in a row. The sound of Carla's French Accented voice is so lovely.

This is great music to listen to while studying, reading, drawing, anything! Upon hearing M83's track "We Own The Sky," I wasn't sure whether or not I liked it. After a few days, I had it on repeat while I was thinking of it's meaning. I think M83 introduced a new form of experimental indie to all it's listeners. You will not be disappointed by them!

Edith Piaf had a very interesting way of rolling her R's that is not done in standard French. The songs take you to another era, yet the things that last are her trilling voice and moving lyrics. éternelle is a compilation CD of some her most famous and best work. It includes the universally known 'La vie an rose' as well as some more obscure, but equally solid work.

Coralie Clément (stage name) is a sister of the amazing Benjamin Biolay (French singer/songwriter/arranger/producer extraordinaire ), which is a good thing. This album is lots of fun. It's all in French (except for a word or 2) but even if you don't understand a thing, the songs are still great. She sings in a throaty, almost whispering tune, which is very, well, French. For some of the tracks it's a bit overkill, but for most of them, it's kinda cool. All the tracks are really good, but here are my favorites: Indécise - Almost waltz like, you really get a feel for her voice here. Catchy in a slow, wait for the beat way. L'Enfer - Slightly off time pick up and background guitar - very cool. Distortion guitar and leads, which contrasts interestingly with her whisperings. Avec Ou Sans Moi & Beau Jour un Pour Mourir - Though different songs, they lead into each other on the CD. 'Avec' goes on much in the style of the songs above. 'Beau Jour' picks it up a bit - Catchy beat that alternates between an Arabic and 60's style. Benjamin Biolay also sings great, base duet. Faster and fun! Kids (Jeu du Foulard) - This was a top hit in France. Though in much the same time as her other songs, it has a more recognizable, modern pop feel. Catchy lyrics with a good hook.

Sometimes I daydream about living in Paris in the 40s. I'm going to have a very fabulous Parisian brunch some day, and this will be the background music. No reason it should only be relegated to late night bathroom beauty regimens or when I'm making coq au vin or boeuf bourgogne by myself.

  • This is a couple of years old, but new to me! I have been on a quest for some cool french pop and this fits the bill - it's mellow and kind of like a cross between Madeleine Peyroux and Bobby McFerrin at times. I love it!

This was my first album by Indochine (singles first sent from Miumina!) in 2002, and it probably still stands as my favourite album. During a time when I craved more French music and French culture (French being one of my majors at university) this definitely fulfilled my needs. I could describe the songs as dark, emotional, but still with traces of pop. The expansion and experimentation of instruments and sounds, and the mix of energy and dark serenity were also an unexpected bonus. If you are a fan of Placebo this is album I highly recommend checking out.

There is a reason I recommend so many female artist, it's because they bring a feeling to music which is of a color that male artists seldom (if not ever) attain. In the case of Yelle and "Pop-Up" the pairing of GrandMarnier's contemporary dance production and Yelle's voice is spectacular, I'm not able to understand a word she sings (and I have to admit it's liberating not to have to enter the music through the meaning of words), and yet the sound, beat and texture of their collaboration is instantly addictive. Here's what happened to me, one moment a song from "Pop-Up" was playing in the record sore I was in, the next moment I was buying it, one moment I was driving with "Pop-Up" playing at normal volume, the next moment I had turned the volume up to the MAX!!! What's more is here in this age of bespoke playlists where one can download just the one good song off any album, I feel "Pop-Up" is a really good album as a whole, it's well balanced between it's many moods. For me Yelle is the missing link between Françoise Cactus of STEREO TOTAL and MIA. I do wish I did know what Yelle is singing about just in case she is the French version Kathleen Hanna or Le Tigre.

I don't speak French (I wish), but I still enjoy the music. While her vocal range is a bit limited, she uses it to her best here, using songs that fit her child-like voice beautifully. It's a stark, hollow kind of sound that still resonates with warmth. Every track is worth listening to, but if you want my favorites, here they are: Dimanche en Hiver - excellent intro, with a sweeping, goose-bump inducing key shift Décrocher Les Étoiles - a sweet duet Jardin d'Hiver - sort of a latin, Girl from Ipanema style Aéroplane - a cover of Red Hot Chili Peppers I believe, but very different, and worth a hear Sur le Fil - nice background, though her voice stretches just a bit The CD's an expensive import, but she is also available on iTunes.
