My love for France extends on many levels, but the language is probably the strongest element that got me so attached to the french culture.
Every time I say that I am a fan of french oldies, lebanese people expect that I listen to Dalida, Aznavour, Joe Dassin, or Claude François. Well guess what? There's much more than the cheesy love songs that your grandma listens to, honey! Not that I mean to diss any of those artists previously mentioned; they're just not my kinda music.
Here's a bunch of french songs by francophone artists which I am particularly fond of, hoping to change your mind on french oldies ;]
Hope y'all having a great Sunday!
