Title: French Welcome
Post by: Mylene on January 16, 2022, 21:10:12
Bonjour tout le monde !

As you probably already know, I am French and I like to share my songs and covers in French (and English) with the Songwriters in the Kitchen's forum. This community is so kind, open-minded and passionate. It is an international place where different languages can build many songs and French is welcome to be more a part of them. I have heard that some people on this forum would love to have more French around here.

It would be interesting for French people or people who know even a little bit of French ;) to share their favorite French songs/style and their own French creations. That could be a wonderful experience for us to see how you feel about French music or art in general.

So welcome to French singers, musicians, writers, composers and non French artists to the Kitchen who would like to share with us a little bit about your perspective and your tracks in your own French way.

I am looking forward to listening to you all.
Thank you @LePlongeur and @oorlab for wanting to initiate this French introduction into the forum.

Bonne journée à toutes et tous.
Prenez soin de vous.

Amicalement,
Mylène

un grand merci @Mylene  pour cette heureuse contribution. J'adore Jacques Brel, Stromae et Arno Hintjes - souvent francophones de Belgique. Mais aussi Sappho, Mylène Farmer, George Brassens... et Barbara Pravi, bien sûr qu'elle aurait dû gagner le dernier Concours Eurovision de la Chanson.

Je suis aussi une grande fane de Mylène Farmer, Jacques Brel, Barbara Pravi et Stromae ainsi que la grande Barbara.
Merci pour le partage, je ne connaissais pas Arno Hintjes et Sapho.
Sa prestation à l'Eurovision est effectivement mémorable  :loveit:

I hope that this is the result/tool @oorlab had in mind.
And thank you @Mylene for writing it!

I’ve pledged my love to french music before. In love since the yeh yeh years.
That list is sheer endless, specially if you leave the trodden path and embrace the more obscure ones. Like I did.
But I never left offcompletely. Thanks you huge (and more mature) talents like Zaz, Patricia Kaas,  and @Mylene to name a few.

My wish for you, innocent bystanders, would be: explore YouTube and listen to your favourites on modern streaming facilities. So artists can pay the rent.

So, if all of you readers, family, friend who are friends or dedicated to french music, please invited them to join!
Good idea, Oorlab!
Kind regards, Gus

@Mylene  - Arno Hintjes is from Oostende, so Flammand. But also England-oriented.
Sapho - vrai nom Danielle Ebguy, franco-marocaine

Les musiciens français sont les bienvenus sur notre forum -
may be someone like these?

Merci @oorlab pour ces précisions
Je connais effectivement cette comptine pour enfants mais avec des paroles différentes et qui s'appelle "Frères Jacques"

@LePlongeur  Salut Gus, merci pour les conseils musicaux dans notre section française. On peut peut-être faire une playlist sur youtube ou spotify. Je pensais à Plastic Betrand, et Arno Hintjes - les connaissez-vous ?
