    Lol, I personally find Edith overrated but maybe because I'm young.

    I love the first one a lot more
    I've seen Indila before but I have an old school vibe (not Edith old though lol.)

    You'll have to be a little bit more specific than "french music" I'm afraid : )

    I assume that most of what you expect is "chanson", a popular vocal genre where the lyrics are very important, while the music tends towards simplicity (though that changes depending on the era).
    I would say that it is most prominent from the beginning of the nineteenth century (because we have very few traces of popular music before that, since the music sheet for this kind of thing is rarely printed) to the end of the twentieth (when it becomes almost entirely replaced with either rap or other styles that are popularised through mass media).
    Unsurprisingly, most of them are love songs, but there is also a large number of chansons that are very political, since it is written by and for working class people.


    A very famous song from 1868 that you might know is Le Temps des Cerises
    http://youtube;f1BgR4jwHII
    Which contrary to popular belief, is not about the Paris Commune.

    This one is though:
    http://youtube;Zhum-7DDlNk

    During the 19th century you'll find people like Pierre-Jean de Bérenger
    http://youtube;5nuhHAWuvCc

    or Emile Debraux
    http://youtube;e0oAEYp2zeo



    At the turn of the century you'll find stuff like Les deux ménétriers
    http://youtube;gHPbLPb1qSY

    l'Angélus de la mer
    http://youtube;0PE85_VLRLU

    or Fille d'Ouvriers
    http://youtube;Nbe45vvO0Xo

    The main personality of the time is the legendary Aristide Bruant (Nini-Peau-d'chien, les canuts, Belleville-Ménilmontant, le Chat Noir)
    http://youtube;_W-1PPI2j0k

    Later during the 20th century you'll find a lot of those who are still remembered today, in part because the technology to record their songs had become more widely available. I'm not going to organize them chronologically because I'm too lazy, but keep in mind that they didn't all live during the same period.

    Georges Brassens (Les copains d'abord, La mauvaise Réputation, Les Amoureux des Bancs Publics, Mourir pour des Idées, and so many other famous songs).
    http://youtube;lQRgym8IDGM
    Georges Brassens is probably the most famous person on this list, and for good reason. If you ask random french people on the street to give you examples of "chanson française", more than half of what they'll quote will be from Brassens.

    Barbara (L'Aigle Noir, Ma plus belle histoire d'amour, Perlimpinpin)
    http://youtube;XoLcVzxwgvQ
    Almost as iconic as Brassens. I remember learning some of her texts in school, and I know a few people who'll cry whenever they hear one of her songs.

    Leo Ferré (Les Anarchistes, Avec le Temps, Ni Dieu ni Maître, C'est l'printemps)
    http://youtube;GO_lDdDraMI

    Boris Vian (La Java des Bombes Atomiques, Le Déserteur, On n'est pas là pour se faire engueuler)
    http://youtube;eryzp0Pklc8

    Jacques Brel (Ne me quitte pas, Asmsterdam)
    http://youtube;rumEi6BKkeQ

    Claude Nougaro (Armstrong, Je suis sous, Le Jazz et la Java)
    http://youtube;-BoR7V6oLKw

    Charles Aznavour (La Bohème, Emmenez-moi, Hier Encore)
    http://youtube;0OrKMaeQUx0

    Renaud (Mistral Gagnant, Manhattan-Kaboul, Dans mon H.L.M.)
    http://youtube;_YqzuE-5RE8
    He's still alive. Unfortnuately his talent isn't.

    Hugues Aufray (Santiano, Debout les gars, Elle descend de la montagne)
    http://youtube;_sWdxvNj-n0

    Michèle Bernard (Maria Suzanna, Je t'aime, Prisons)
    http://youtube;Q9ssthC4nHU


    Of course this is only a very quick overview of that style, if you want more details I'll do my best to provide them, though I'm no expert.
    I'll also post something here about other genres of French music, but you'll have to wait a bit since I'm rather busy.

    I listen to various french songs, but despite living in Quebec I mostly listen to English music and instrumentals. Some of my favorites are Palladium by Liz Brady, Tout les garcons by Francoise Hardy, and Le Soleil (J'ai Perdu Mon Corps) ending music. J'espère qui vous aimerez les chansons!

    She's so good. I discovered her in a post on one of the meme pages I follow; she posts old songs sometimes, and I've loved Francoise Hardy since then. The music video for Tous Les Garcons is so good, too. I'm such a sucker for good music videos. Serge Gainsbourg's Chez Les Ye-Ye is really good too

    I literally just found her one day. I think I was listening to some Jeanette and she was a suggestion.

    One really good Quebec, sort of underground artist I listen to from time to time is Alisa Amadour. She did a fantastic cover of La Vie en Rose one time on CBC (canadian radio station) and her voice was just sublime. Only recorded version of the song I could find was on youtube, and it was live, recorded on a phone. Despite the awful quality, I still listen to it regularly, since it's just such a good rendition of the song. Edith Piaf does a nice version too, but I find nothing compares to Ms. Amadour's voice.

    Hey, I’m back!

    Now, we’ve talked about chanson, but that’s obviously not all there is to french music.

    Let’s start, by going way back in time, with some baroque music. Because it sounds really good. Before talking about the later part of the era, I need to mention what is probably the most iconic work written for the harpsichord, François Couperin’s Barricades Mystérieuses:
    http://youtube;wWuuqjNJfB8
    Couperin was a beast who fought that every musician worthy of the name should be able to effortlessly improvise virtuoso pieces just to check if their instrument was correctly tuned, and at the same time be involved in totally unrelated conversations.

    I also have to mention Lully, the superintendant of music under Louis XIV. A few of the pieces that he wrote were intended to be played in the comedies of the very famous playwright Molière, such as:
    http://youtube;uORg1aeD_Og
    Lully was an ******* and died from hitting his foot with the very heavy stick that he used for conducting. Surprinsingly not the lamest way that a famous french composer has died, as that award goes to Ernest Chausson who went too fast on his bycicle and hit a fence.

    Now, for the late Baroque era.
    The heavyweight of the time was Jean-Philippe Rameau. The best french composer to have ever lived imo.
    Rameau was the theorician who gave the bases for the style of the classical period (based on weird pseudo-science, but still).
    More importantly, he composed many operas, such as Les Indes Galantes, which includes the famous Rondeau des sauvages:
    http://youtube;cF_XlT1SRHY

    He also wrote a lot for the harpsichord, such as this:
    http://youtube;eoFRsY_B5O4

    At the same time or slightly later you can find some of the best (and most underrated) harpsichord composers, in the same style as Rameau.
