A lot of people find my blog (the one in Portuguese) looking for expressions like romantic French music, the most beautiful French songs or French love songs. And since I believe this blog exists to help people find what they want, I decided to create a post only for the subject “love songs in French”.
Whether you’re gonna use this list for some romance, or to cry over the lost lover, or even inspire a lonely heart, I made it list as a form of sentimental service, a romantic cuddle for the souls of the world.
The cynic and cold hearted ones will have to excuse me, but this post is all about romance.
La vie en Rose – Édith Piaf
Que reste-t-il de nos amours – Charles Trenet
Vous qui passez sans me voir – Jean Sablon
Tous les gaçons et les filles – Françoise Hardy
La Noyée – Serge Gainsbourg
Perhaps the most romantic song by Gainsbourg, this song was recorded only once in a live presentation, therefore, the video is mandatory. But careful: it’s heart breaking. Carla Bruni made her own version of it click here to listen.
Tous les visages de l’amour – Charles Aznavour
Puisque vous partez en voyage – Jean Sablon et Mireille
Quand on a que l’amour – Jacques Brel
And last, but not at all least, the cherry on top of the ice cream. This song is by the same man who wrote Ne me quitte pas. And since there’s a video of Brel singing this song with such strength and so much soul, I just couldn’t post just the song for you to hear. If that guy didn’t know what love was, well, then I guess no one else will ever know.
Deixei aqui só as músicas antigas. Da nouvelle scène française, prometo fazer outra seleção ainda essa semana.
