I love the music of Stromae (especially Formidable, Papaoutai, Tous les mêmes and Ta fête) and Dernière Danse from Indila.

If I were to put my favorite songs, those would be them! Haha We must have the same taste in music or something

J'aime bien beaucoup de chansons francaises, mais je ne sais pas s'ils sont actuelles. Ces deux semblent les plus actuelles.

Ta vidéo de Yelle (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZKxQdZ32S5o) est sous-titrée en anglais et en français, c'est intéressant pour apprendre.

Currently, my fave French song is this:

The Wounds Which Cannot Be Seen
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KG_IGg4MbBUlist=PLhQqmUXcVE0eD6LBhwMOS7Qr3iQswI3Jyfeature=mh_lolz

(Don't watch the video; it's just distracting and doesn't seem to fit the song. Just listen).

Someone was kind enough to post the lyrics:

Génial !   Je l'aime !  Trés français !
That video is (from my American POV) the epitome of French-ness.
Merci beaucoup pour partage. :-)

EDIT: I found the lyrics (in French and English). Elles sont trés drôles; hilarant !

Amesoeurs - Amesoeurs / Coeur de Pirate - La Petite Mort / Paris Combo - Dans les Bras d'un Loup / Alcest - Écailles de Lune / Les Discrets - Une Matinée en Hiver / Les Fragments de la Nuit - Des Restes Vivaces / Ridan - Passe à Ton Voisin /

And then tons of really interesting metal stuff that no one seems to care about.

Also, just because non-current is just as good as the current, some more accessible ones :

Charles Aznavour - La Bohème, Jezebel, Emmenez-moi, etc. / Françoise Hardy - Mer, Je Veux qu'il Revienne, Effeuille-moi le Coeur / Noir Desir - Aux Sombres Heroes de l'Amer / Indochine - 3me Sexe

And then tons of really interesting progressive rock stuff that no one seems to care about

My two favourite songs at present are «Amour, t'es là?» by Banda Magda, the French version of "Let It Go" from Frozen - «Libérée, Délivrée» and Tokyo et Paris, a French song from an anime cartoon.

Pfft! Dudes! What about Jacques Brel and Charles Aznavour! They are true legends of 'La musique française! - I learnt 'Champs-Élysées' by Joe Dassin on my guitar, gonna bust that out next time I'm busking :)

If you want to know all the recent popular French songs, I highly recommend checking out some of NRJ's web radios such as NRJ French or NRJ Made in France.
