I started learning french just to understand Lara Fabian songs like je t'aime, especially live concerts, also you can try Alizee songs like Moi... Lolita, of course your taste of music can be different but you may want to try them.

This topic comes back every week or so. Check out this discussion. I've even linked 5 other discussions in the same style in that one.

William Sheller is great, too. All of his songs are wonderful. There is also Julien Clerc, Jean-Jacques Goldman, Charles Aznavour, Daniel Balavoine, Eddie Mitchell, Edith Piaf, France Gall, Francis Cabrel, Jacques Brel, Jeanne Mas, Joe Dassin, Lynda Lemay, Pierre Bachelet, Serge Reggiani,...

And I pretty much just listed all of my favorites. Most of them are major french singers, and pretty much unavoidable if you want to explore french songs ^^

There is also this one I can't stand, but he is a legend and maybe you'll like it : it is Georges Brassens. Most people can't understand how I can not like his songs. Guess I just don't have the taste for his style.

Georges Brassens might be my single favorite among French singers ;-) ! I can understand how people would not like him though. Can you tell me what it is specifically about him that you don't like? Ironically, I have more trouble with Jacques Brel. Although his texts are among the most powerful and poignant in French music, I have difficulty with his apparent complete lack of rhythm.

Ils ont des styles bien différents l'un de l'autre (question d'époque aussi), mais ils font tous les deux partie de la culture musicale française.

I feel like there is barely any melody in his songs, and his rythm is broken, it grates on my nerves, I can't stand it

Lack of rythm ? Jacques Brel ? oO I guess it really is a matter of personal perception xD

Haha ! En effet, ça ne semble être qu'une question de préférence. On s'entend donc pour dire qu'autant Jacques Brel que Georges Brassens étaient de grand poètes, qui n'ont peut-être pas réussi à rejoindre tout le monde avec leurs façons bien personnelles de mettre leurs textes en musique. ;-)

My favourite French radio: "Le Mouv". With the emission Francosonik you can hear the latest good French songs (and not just commercial songs). Latest podcasts can be found here: http://www.lemouv.fr/diffusions-francosonik
