Popular French Music – 100 songs

Have you wanted to listen to French music but never knew where to start? The Top 100 French songs you must hear complies a vast array of popular French music in one place for your listening convenience. This huge list spans several genres and the music is sung by a myriad of artists. Every song is worth a listen.

Please keep in mind:

  • Everybody has different tastes of music. I tried to get a good mix of pop, hip hop/rap, rock, and acoustic/folk music. If you find a song you like then take note of the artist and search for more songs by them.
  • The songs are ordered in a random fashion however newer music is presented first and older music is near the end of the list. So, the first song is not necessarily better than song 58.
  • Not all the singers are French, but the music is nonetheless in French and recognized by Francophones. Most of the music has been played on French radio, on French television, or in French clubs/bars.

Here is a playlist containing all of the YouTube videos.
