This is not a post about Cukor’s film Les Girls; it’s a post to introduce you to a few blogs that I like a lot, where you can find girls singing in French.
Blowupdoll was the first audio blog that I visited. And thanks to Mordi that posts songs of “dolls”, as he calls the lovely singers, I discovered many great French singers.The French dolls aren’t so frequently on his wonderful blog, but there isn’t a single reason not to put him on your favourites list.
Filles Sourires – Girls. Singing In French. Making Me Sigh. Any questions? A man with a suggestive nick of Guuzbourg shows the singers that he appreciates with a brief presentations and files to listen. I have to say that Filles Sourires is now my favourite audio blog and I’m addicted to French songs, specially those sung by girls.
Oh-la-la is not a blog, and I talked about it some time ago. It’s an on-line radio with French music from the 50s, 60s, and 70s. Of course they have French women singing. New music is added every week, so from time to time, just go visit it.
Rato Records Blog. The focus of this blog is vintage songs and occasionally there are posts with French singers. Check all hist posts with the name” Nostalgia” – you can find on those compilations many a lot of French music.
Spiked Candy. I’m not sure of the blog’s theme, but there are a lot of songs in French and girls singing. I didn’t find any feed to sign, but to keep me updated of the fantastic selection of the songs posted I signed the mailing list. One of my favourite posts is euro-madness with the beautiful song “L’Amour Est Bleu” by Vicky Leandros.
I have a contribution too, with six of my favourite French singers. If you like the songs you can buy the CDs on Amazon. And here is my selection:
Carla Bruni – Quelqu’un M’a Dit or here (buy the CD)
Clarika & Bernard Lavilliers – Non Ça S’peut Pas (buy the CD)
Eartha Kitt – Je Cherche Un Homme or here (buy the CD)
Edith Piaf – Non, Je Ne Regrette Rien or here (buy the CD or buy The Dreamers soundtrack)
Mylène Farmer – Q.i or here (buy the CD)
Sandrine Kiberlain – Manquait Plus Qu`ça (buy the CD)
