-Les Champs-Elysées by Joe Dassin is a really good one. It's calming and pretty sounding. The lyrics are simple, and every time I listen to it, I pick up on new words.

-Comment ça va by Patrick Sebastien is a really fine one that will get stuck in your head.

-Bella by Maître Gims is another very popular and good one.

-I also find it helpful to listen to French dubs of English songs too.

French is one of the most beautiful languages, and I love the sound of French songs, hope this helps!

    I've made a list on YouTube of my favourite French songs. You might like them too: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLu-6_ze1HUTQNMDbsp9u7nRJojeX0GveS

    Translations into English for nearly all of these songs can be found on the LyricsTranslate website.

    Jacques Dutronc is a must for great, easy to learn, famous songs, e.g. 'Mini, mini, mini', 'Les cactus', 'La fille du père Noël', ‘Le bras mécanique’… I would also recommend Brassens and Bobby Lapointe but that will require a huge deal of knowledge to appreciate.

    If you want an easy song to learn - 'La mer' by The little Rabbits is an obvious one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZcBn34ZFcCU

    Hey! Songs are a great way to learn a language. I find that learning vocab and grammar gets tedious after a while, so I will go back to listening to music and testing myself with a movie or the news. I made a playlist on spotify with my favourite go-to french songs.

    I'd recommend Stromae, Corneille, Maître Gims, Elle me dit by Mika, or Nekfeu if you really want to test yourself!
