    Old Yannick Noah's (him off of the tennis) still quite popular over there and I liked this song from 2006 or so that always cheers me up

    Also Mylene Farmer- great voice, sometimes rather haunting and here's a track you won't hear on Radio 2

    Back in the 80's when I lived in Brittany (not France!) for a while this was a favourite from old John Jacques Goldman. And I had the same haircut.

    For your ultra typical French pop song with a cracking tune , you can't really get better than Lolita by Alizee (from 2000 or so?)

    For this and other assorted nonsense, our radio is usually tuned to...

    Glad to help, go for the Moon Safari album first or their new one Love 2, but avoid 10,000Hz Legend - it's a stinker.

  13. I skipped though without trying all the links but Edith Piaf does French better than anyone.

    I also put in a vote for Vanessa Paradis. I dont know the track linked by 3BM at post #3 (but anyone that chucks a topless girl playing an electric guitar is OK by me).
    I would go for "Be My Baby"

    I bought a "Negresses Vertes" tape once, played it a few times, kind of liked it... thought "hmm... are they trying to be the french Pogues". I still have it somewhere, possiblym, though it might have gone during a tape-cull I had some years ago... generally, the french should stick to shrugging and running the TdF.
