    Not sure how old do you exactly mean, but I really like Françoise Hardy

    I also wonder what "old" means in this context. In our French basic course we dealt with Boris Vian's Le déserteur and while it's not my favourite music to listen to, it's got some inspiring lyrics and the historical background is quite interesting.
    Je n'ai qu'une philosophie: Être acceptée comme je suis. Malgré tout ce qu'on me dit, je reste le poing levé.

    Say no to streaming!

    Piaf is fierce yet dramatique, Joe Dassin is so romantique.

    We should revive this thread but we should change the title, classic or new, this thread should be an appreciation of French music

    You guys may like "Debut" by Zoë (the Austrian ESC 2016 candidate). Yeah, she's Austrian and not French, but the album is still good. The whole album is in French language and I personally wouldn't notice that she isn't French if I had never heard of her before. The songs sound like those typical cute French chansons.
