Stereolab are very good too.

How about Nolwenn Leroy's Histoire Naturelle and Mon Ange?

There is also Emilie Simon's Fleur de Saison. She is the girl who sings in the film "March of the Emperor".

I also like Tina Arena, especially her Je m'appelle Bagdad.

And I like Alizee.

Azelle Red is a great Belgian singer who sings mostly in french. She's been around for years and has got loads of stuff on youtube.

another hit from Alizee here.

I could link you to all the Axelle Red songs as she's my favourite french singer but I will stick to Rester Femme - worth watching till the end and
je pense à toi

I'm enjoying listening to the music on this thread.

Ella, elle l'a

belgo Mon 14-Jul-08 19:28:56

I hadn't realised Kate Ryan's Ella Elle L'a was a cover.

Kate Ryan's Desenchantee.

DaDaDa Mon 14-Jul-08 21:22:53

France Gall peut etre?

DaDaDa Mon 14-Jul-08 21:27:57

I see Marina beat me to it (but the early stuff is better) smile

Etienne Daho... and there my knowledge of French Pop shudders to a grinding halt.

UnquietDad Mon 14-Jul-08 22:43:54

Ah, belgo, I see you have linked to Alizee's tribute to the Smiths guitarist. wink

belgo Tue 15-Jul-08 08:31:40

Not really pop, and you probably already have it:
