I know there are a lot of French lovers in this forums (including myself)! Just wanted to share this song with you guys! The signer's name is Zaz. The first video is a street performance, and the second is the same song, but recorded in the studio!

P.S: There is a Chrysler 300 in the first video which is parked right in front of the group! (3:31)

Seems like an American counterfeit of Alizee. For the real thing Google "Alizee" Check out her rendition of "J'en ai marre" or "La Isla Bonita."

^Is that the girl who sings that song about the Fish, Orconn? Long story, but my Russian Friend, who is also fluent in France-Language told me about it once. Apparently she is popular across the globe.

Why don't you bump my old Alizee thread?

I watched it and tried to find something funny in it, but I couldn't.... The producers of this video completely lack the sense of humor.....

Who ever said it was funny? I just felt it belonged here, after consulting the one I keep around due to her knowledge of the French. Having spent a few years more in the country than have in total (about five years more), I felt she would be a better representative of it. That was her response on the subject of "French Music".

Most times, I trust her opinion. On a subject such as this, her expertise could be classified only as ultimate.

^^^ Watched the clip and could only conclude, that the American visitors had arrived with a bad attitude and that it was reciprocated (rightly so) by the French they came in contact with. This is often the case with Americans abroad, and tourists of other nationalities as well. The French, particularly Parisians, when they encounter what they perceive as rudeness and disrespect dish it right back to the offender.

Americans creep me the **** out. Like. For real.

And they all speak with funny accents. Especially the Canadians.

This part is for your Irish friend? :D

No, I blocked him like...1,000 years ago. (Or does it still show him MY posts?)

Lol "Irish". :bigroll: Most people I know who have NO Celtic know more about Irish culture than him and definitely speak more of the language. Last I checked (Which was about a month ago), we don't MAKE Irish people who only speak English.

No that part is just true. Canadians have funny accents. And funny ways of forming sentences. And they put an upwards inflection at the end of EVERY sentence and make it sound like they are phrasing it as a question.

Don't get me wrong. EVERY country has it's share of funny accents.

Oh and hey! I found the "girl with the song about the fish"

Turns out she IS this Alizee (Or someone else with the same name?)

Still not so much my kind of music. Too...pop-ish.

If I HAVE to listen to French Music (which happens more often than you'd think, in my life) I'd prefer something like this.

She is THE Alizee! The same singer that jim and orconn were referring to. She was very cute, and her songs were very lively and lovely! I saw a new video clip of of her, and let's just say I prefer to listen to her old works.

Meh. Not my thing, I guess.
