Our family fave would have to be Maurice Chevalier singing the theme to "The Aristocats"!

I like so many, including, Jacques Brel, Francoise Hardy, Serge Gainsbourg, Josephine Baker, and of course Edith Piaf. I also enjoy cafe music. How much fun it would be to invite people to enjoy French food and conversation in an cafe atmosphere that I'd create using the French Putumayo CDs as the background music.

I enjoy listening to French music especially some of the traditional ones like "La Vie En Rose" while I'm cooking a French dish or have guests over for dinner. It creates a very special atmosphere.

I was recently introduced to the music of Edith Piaf and find it fantastic! I look forward to sampling this new CD during my next Whole Foods visit.

A favorite French singer is Carla Bruni Sarkozy. I also like the French band Phoenix.

My favorite French artist would have to be... ZAZ!!! Isabelle Geffroy (a.k.a. "Zaz") has an AMAZING voice. Not only that, but I enjoy the positive vibes I get when singing along to her honest lyrics. I also like Manu Chau, and; dare I say it, the French metal band GOJIRA \m/ ;) There's lots of musical talent coming out of France. I can't wait to hear some of the more classical sounds that Putumayo has come up with for this new album. I've heard several Putumayo compilations, and they were all quite enchanting. My favorites so far were Arabic Groove, Afro-Latin Party, and World Playground, which features a fun song from Manu Chau himself! :D

Moi, j'aime bien Madeleine Peyroux. She's got a perfect voice for jazz, folk, and other "music of the people." Warm and soulful, heartfelt and lyrical, Ms. Peyroux refreshes standards and puts a patina on new material.

Actually, I'm in need of a favorite! I always hear chanson during a movie, commercial or at a restaurant and think 'That's really nice, I'd like a copy for home" but somehow I never seem to find out the artist or forget by the time I get online. This could be my long sought after fav.

Of course Edith Piaf takes me back to the City of Lights...strolls along the Seine, getting lost in a book at Shakespeare & Co., a chocolate croissant sitting on the sidewalk and watching the world go by. Viva La France!

Georges Brassens - gotta understand the lyrics for best effect!

I love French music, I grew up in a country where the music was quite popular and singers like Sharl Aznabur (spelling), Edith Piaf and pop singers like Adamo, Christoph etc. were very popular. (sorry I do not remember the spelling of these singers names)

Edith Piaf will get your blood flowing or make you cry. Love the music piped in the metro.

"Chanson d'amour, da da da da daaah," ooh la la, my first impression of anything about French music! Just what I need to practice the language. Edith Piaf - she is/was quintessential Paris. Oui?

I don't really have one. I love Edith Piaf! But if just singing in French counts....... Santa baby...... It's Eartha Kitt forever! <3

I like the look it makes me think that if it created the mood of the colors and pictures that it would be joyous.

Being as old as I am, I never thought it would be a "new" cultural awakening to some of this very lovely music. My grandmother played 33 and 78 LPs of French "pop" music, and La Mer was also my favorite, and we also bought the English language Bobby Darin 45 record. Beautiful memories.
