Looking for a French music playlist? You're in luck because I created a playlist of some of the best French songs I handpicked personally. Currently there are already 600 French songs in this playlist but I will add more as I go along.

Feel free to go through the playlist. There are different genres there. Who knows, you might discover your next favorite French song!

If you're learning French, music can be an awesome way to get exposed to more French. You can check out more learning tips here: 

How to Use Music to Learn French

Ready to dive into the French music playlist? C'est parti !

1. How to get access to the 600 songs

As you can see below, the embed version of this playlist is limited to 200 songs. To access the 600 French songs, you will need to sign-up with Spotify (it's totally free). 

You can sign-up here.

 

Again If you want to add the playlist on spotify go here.

 

2. How to get the lyrics and turn your computer into a karaoke

Add the app called musiXmatch. Here's a video to help you know all about it.

Please note that some of the songs are not synchronized. If some native French speakers are reading this message, please help me sync the lyrics (the app makes it very easy). I already did work on it and I think 80% of the songs have lyrics but less popular songs need some work.

  

The French Music Playlist is Also Available on Deezer

For those of you who do not have access to Spotify or would rather go for Deezer, don't worry, I also prepared the playlist on Deezer. Check it out below.

  • hi…

    My name is Ramya and i came across your website in Benny the polyglot’s blog. I just subscribed yesterday. My question is i tried to listen to the list of 400 french songs in spotify.com…but it says its not available. Could you recommend the songs ( not all 400) but the names of the artists? The reason why its not available is because im from India.

    Also… I do know french but its been so long that i remember a few words and verbs. Is it recommendable to start from the beginner’s level? Using the Beginner’s package?

    • Hello Ramya, can you let me know what kind of genre of music do you like? Perhaps I can give you a list of recommendation for you.

      Now concerning the Beginner’s package, are you talking about the French Learning Package?

      I think you can have a look. Check it out the grammar lesson as well. It might be good for you. You can start again from the beginning if it is been a while you did not study French. My guess, you will be able to recall a lot of things just by rechecking again.

  • I dunno why but I am trying to click on the link to the spotify list but the I can’t see the list on spotify. What is the list name? Maybe I can use the name to find it. merci

  • Bonjour, est-ce qu’il y a une autre app ou un autre moyen pour ecouter votre playlist? Spotify est pas dispo pour mon pays (Indonésie). Merci.

  • C’est formidable — merci!

    Je serais ravie de voir plusieurs chansons de Christophe Willem et encore quelques chansons de Corneille. 🙂

  • hi! your work with the playlist is great, i really enjoy the songs! but there is a problem now, the texts of musicxmatch are not avaible on spotify now 🙁 how can we see texts of songs?

  • Perhaps you could add some songs by Cassandre, a French pop duo based in Paris. I discovered them last year and I love their music! Wonderful list, thank you Frederic!

  • Merci pour cette belle collection de chansons françaises ! Je voudrais y trouver aussi des chansons de Thomas Fersen ; la version de “Quelque chose de Tennessee” chantée par Eva ; “Sympathique” de Pink Martini ; vos préferences de Georges Moustaki, Serge Reggiani et Yves Duteuil ; “Le parapluie” de Brassens, bien sûr ; Et “Père prodigue” de Georges Chelon; “Petit Pays” de Gaël Faye ; “Je t’aimais, je t’aime et je t’aimerai” et “Samedi soir sur la Terre” de Francis Cabrel….
