Some classic French songs, some of which were covered or popular in the USA too.


YouTube - ‪La vie en rose - Edith Piaf‬‏ - Louis Armstrong's cover is also famous.


YouTube - ‪Charles Trénet - La Mer (live Olympia)‬‏ - "Beyond the Sea" by Bobby Darin is a cover or variant from this.


YouTube - ‪Mireille Mathieu sings La marseillaise‬‏ - I was going to avoid this, but it's one of the most famous French songs of all.
