Music I gratefully discovered in Paris, part X

Yes, I’m not lying, I discovered these while still living in Paris, I’m just showing them a little late… (insert angel emoji)

Yseult: One comment on youtube says she is French Lizzo. I love them both and would gladly attribute such awesomeness to this French lady, but I must say I find her too different to actually say that myself, her voice, the way she sings, the open dark note to most of the songs… Anyway, decide for yourselves. I will always appreciate an urban take on la chanson française, to whichever side of the spectrum she takes it. I discovered her with the song below, right now though I’m all into Corps and 5H (hint to the song of the week widget on my blog).

la réalité me rattrape au réveil je suis dans tous mes états il n’y a pas de place pour les regrets

Hollydays: This one song was on repeat after I left Paris, actually, altough it is not new. It’s just so soothing. Like, you can dance, but you can also just lay down on the couch and do nothing but listen.

tu peux peux tu peux éteindre la lumière

Bagarre: These guys are something. I remember reading an article about them with all those superlatives on how different they are, in their sound, but also in their approach to pretty much everything, it almost made me not listen to them, because, you know, when reactions are exaggerated, they often lose me. I still did, I’ve come to trust the label they’re at for unique acts and their name means fight in French, so … ok  …  Anyway, they still intrigue me and they wrote a couple of songs I could sometimes (more often than I would admit) decorate with the #currentmood hashtag. I never saw them live, so here’s to one more reason to go back to Paris. For more, just listen. And, bye bye!

au revoir à toi la fin du monde au revoir à toi la fin du mois

I’ve just finished watching the French pop show on Netflix which I never should have watched…. bad idea, Ivona, bad idea. It’s happening in Paris of course and too many scenes take place near my old home. So, for reasons totally obscure I now love this song, joining the second one above for to dance or not to dance dilemma.

The title is lying now and don’t care. (insert devil emoji)

  1. Hey there, I loved the first two and it led to me listening to more of them so thanks! I’m so out of touch of everything – and over here they never play French music anywhere – I guess I could try to fond some on Spotify now that you inspired me! Those first two songs remind me of what I loved about the vibe in France – always new music to fall for, great movies, so much culture and art to enjoy in all its forms. Always something happening and that expectant feeling in your chest… ah 💕

    1. You’re welcome, I love it when someone also appreciates sounds I like 😊
      yes, tell me about it, they never put it on here neither, luckily youtube knows me well and I have a couple of other channels by now so I think I’ll keep finding more even here, plus I still have a lot of them on my old lists!
      Again, you captured my feelings about France perfectly, that vibe yes 🥰 I think it was one of the things that made me feel most at home in Paris.

    1. Thank you, I’m glad you appreciate these posts, it’s one of my favorite things to do and I never know if anyone is actually interested in going through them 😊
      I haven’t! Truth be told, I’m kind of avoiding this director, not sure I can/want to handle him 🙂
