Recommend me some music with French vocals!
Sup 'Pit,

I'm in my last year of teacher training and I need your help. I study English and French and as a musician, I've chosen to do my dissertation on the different ways music can be used in class. Choosing English songs to use is no problem but it's a much bigger challenge to find interesting songs in French. So:

Recommend me some interesting music that has French vocals! With interesting I mean songs that consist of more than 4 chords and have a challening lyrical concept.

Thanks in advance!

You could try AqME. I think their ex-frontman (he recently left the band) was doing an interesting job with the lyrics.

An exemple :

Thanks a lot for the quick replies! I'm listening to them all right now and so far they all sound great, just checking into the grammar in the lyrics and determining if it's useable. Keep it coming!!
