I just LOVE when someone I adore makes a good cover of a song I like. It’s like mixing up two very delicious things and putting them together in a blender, something like Nutella milkshake. That’s why I got super excited when I found this morning a version Benjamin Biolay made of J’suis snob, by Boris Vian. The original, that was already awesome, became something else in the voice of Biolay. Check it out:

I’m definitely diving into another Benjamin Biolay phase. Again. (Will I ever get sick of him? I don’t know, only time can answer that). So I found today a version he sang if his own Ça valait la peine, a beautiful song he wrote for his sister Coralie Clément. I always loved it in the voice of Coralie, but now I can’t decide which version I like the most.

A few months ago, I made a list of the top 10 songs to help you lean French. The list became so popular that I decided to make a second part, with 10 other songs, since learning French is not exactly an easy task and there are so many songs that can help a beginner to understand better the language of Baudelaire. Here they are, organized from easiest to not so easy. 1. Ces mots stupides, this version of Something Stupid (made popular by Frank and Nancy Sinatra) is ridiculously simple and the lyrics are so much like the original…

My best friend, who lives in Paris for more than 5 years, knowing that I’m a huge fan of the good old radio, introduced me to FIP the last time I went to Paris and, so far, it’s the best station I’ve ever listened to in Paris. So the other day I was browsing fun stuff in the Apple App Store and I found an app that allows me to listen to FIP. It for free, obviously, and I highly recommend it!I’m sorry the image bellow is in Portuguese, but apparently I’m not allowed to access the American App store…
