    Georges Brassens - La mauvaise réputation

    Noir Désir - L'homme pressé

    Paris Combo - Living Room

    Noir Désir - Le vent nous portera

    Les Rita Mitsouko - Marcia Baila

    Anything by Jacques Brel - but try this one sung beautifully by Bruno Pelletier - (in fact anything by Bruno - his diction is excellent)......

    You can find the lyrics translated, but try your own first......I always find lyric translation not only helps with another language but it makes you think more closely about your native tongue too.....

    La Chanson des Vieux Amants

    un favori d'asolute de plus de manières qu'une !

    Then try Bruno's 'Vivre Sa Vie'.........
