Have you heard of Thomas Dutronc. He's my favorite French artist, followed by Jacques Dutronc who is kinda like the Beatles.

To cite some classics, there is Ne Me Quitte Pas, by Jacques Brel (translated to If You Go Away in English). Other songs by Jacques Brel include Amsterdam, Vesoul, Il nous faut regarder, or Quand on a que l'amour.

You can also try to listen to : Renaud, Barbara, Georges Brassens, or Les Ogres de Barback. These are pretty different styles (Georges Brassens is mostly sung poetry, Barbara is a little more interesting with her voice than Brassens, Renaud shows a rock influence in a lot of his songs, and Les Ogres de Barback use a lot of brass instruments).

I know that feeling, I started with the same songs 2-3 years ago ^^ It's nostalgic to listen to them nowadays :') I used to be a huge fan of the French version of Let it go and some other Disney songs too XD Now I mostly listen to Ridsa and Amir but I still like Louane, Indila, Kyo, Stromae, Merzhin, Nolwenn Leroy, Kendji Girac etc. I could go on all day :'DDD

Any time someone tries to suggest that the French language is sissy-sounding, I just throw "A la volonté du peuple" in his face:

Louane is a great singer. I also like her songs. My personal favourite of hers is "Maman".

If you like Louane, you may like Charlotte Cardin. My favourite songs of hers are:

-Les Échardes: https://youtu.be/TbMeXghMYpI -Faufile: https://youtu.be/4j8DVTkZdCE

Marie-Mai is also one of my favourtie artists, though her music is more pop-rock.

If you like songs from the 80's and 90's and musical theater, I highly suggest all the songs (all the songs are good, and many have been sang separately by other artists) from Starmania (opéra rock) and Notre-Dame de Paris. Great lyrics, fun music, superb singers :)
