Je besoin d'aide - chanteurs français

For my French homework I have to present one French singer / one French song that I like the most.
To be frank, I don't know any French singers (well, I know and like Edith Piaf, but I guess many of  my schoolfriends will present her, so I need another idea).

Which is your favourite French song?

  1. The list is too long! Here are a few classics I really like (not sure why):

  2. Oops sorry I didn't read the Piaf part... Here is one more (still alive, but barely):

    But it's french slang, it might be a challenge. E-mail me to let me know what genre you like and I might come up with something...

    Actually from Brel I like this one too:

  4. Stromae is the only French singer that I know, but I doubt you'll like him. I don't really care for his music. I bet that Celine Dion has some songs in French, but I don't know if French Canadian would work for the assignment.

  5. Hi Klara, I was also going to suggest Jacques Brel - I've listened to so many of his songs throughout my childhood... to me he's one of the greatest! There are many many songs that I could recommend, but this one is about a couple still in love after a long life which hasn't always been easy (and no kids!), so I thought you might like it:

    Another big classic is Charles Aznavour, with for example:

    And another I like very much, here with a song that even has a bit of Italian in it ;-) :

    1. Oh, j'avais pas relevé pour les vieux amants de Brel ;-) Je vais aller écouter ta sélection Aznavour.

  7. I don't know a lot of French songs, but Celine Dion came to mind. ;) Also, Ginette Reno, another French-Canadian chanteuse, who was also managed by Celine's late husband, Rene Angelil.
