Your favorite songs with French lyrics?


I like to listen to music while I work. I would like to listen to more music in French. I don't have preference for genre or anything like that.

I have been listening to the French recordings of Les Misérables and artists like Emilie Simon. I would love to listen to more songs with French lyrics! I'd appreciate any recommendations.

I love Cœur de pirate; here are a few of my favorites by her:

I also like:

I'm probably forgetting some....

If there are any without lyrics already in the video, you can usually find them on lyricstranslate.com


Here is a list of my favorite French song from French-Canadian artist Marie-Mai:

Qui prendra ma place https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JM7MjTet5m0 with lyrics https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vRECdkupITg

Mentir https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zLui7MMcajY with lyrics https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eNA3lp257G8

C'est Moi with lyrics https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7Ohv4FF2NPQ

Overall I found this great YouTube Channel that can help you improve your French. There are many music videos that have both the French and English translations side to side. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCLOGvUn51HA7iVgUL2yFS6g/videos?shelf_id=1&view=0&sort=p


Merci beaucoup! I really enjoyed Coralie Clément and Charles Trenet! And Edith Piaf of course :)


I have made a Spotify list with French chansons by Serge Gainsbourg, Joe Dassin, Jacques Brel and many others.



I liked the song for eurovision ; requiem by alma and most stuff done by her, also j'ai demande a la lune - indochine and trois nuit pas semaine by the same guy, or derniere danse by kylo something


Merci pour vos recommandations! I'll give them all a listen :)


en anglais s'il vous plait
