I´m one of those people who Love French music. That’s why I decided to put together this list of my top 3 favorite popular French pop songs. So here it is!

La Mer – Charles Trent

This song is very famous and It’s definitely one of my absolute all time favourites. The rumor goes that this song was written in just 10 minutes and recorded in 1946. La Mer, which means “The Sea”,  is about the beauty of the sea. You should definitely listen to it!

This is also one of my absolute favourite french song. Jasques wrote and recorded this song back in 1959 after that his mistress had left him. Left in despair he managed to create this absolute classic and beautiful song. Enjoy!

This song is a bit different, but wow so touching! Performed by the amazing Francoise hardy. This song became very famous back in 1962 when it was released and showed on television. The song is about not finding love, a girl who’s never been in love and is jealous of all the couples that she sees. The song has been performed and recorded by a lot of different artists aswell.
