The holiday is upon us, regardless of your feelings. Some of you may hate it, some of you may love it, and some of you may consider it a pleasant experience, but nothing that you and your partner don’t share on a daily basis. No matter where you fall in the V-Day argument, we’ve got a little something everyone can agree on: French love songs.
Seriously, is there anything more romantic than Serge Gainsbourg crooning in French? We don’t think so, so we put together A Very Left Bank Valentine’s Playlist. Enjoy, loves.
Serge Gainsbourg // Je t’aime moi non plus
Serge AND Jane? Count us in.
Francoise Hardy // Comment te dire adieu
Francoise Hardy is the ultimate in Parisian chic, and we can say the same about “Comment te dire adiue.”
Brigitte Bardot // Moi je joue
This song is as charming, sunny, and effortlessly sensual as the singer herself.
Gillian Hills // Avec toi
Love 60s pop and the Stax sound? Check out “Avec toi” by Gillian Hills; it’s all that, plus French.
Louis Armstrong // La Vie En Rose
Okay, I’ll admit: Louis Armstrong isn’t French, and the song is in English, but you know what? “La Vie En Rose” is Paris in a song to me, and you’ll never change my mind.
