So this week, I decided to play songs about France, or from shows set in France. It was a really fun list to put together!
I featured Judy Garland for my first two songs, because she is wonderful!
I’ve never seen this show, but this is a perfect song for this theme.
I had to include these two, because they are two of my favourite shows, and they are just so French.
I also haven’t seen Can-Can, so I didn’t realize how many songs from it that I knew. I was spoiled for choice with this one.
I associate both of these songs very strongly with some of my past trips to France. I read Candide while I was there, and I was introduced to the music of Jacques Brel. I don’t know the show, but I adore this song.
This was the recessional at my wedding, so I include it whenever possible. Part of the show takes place in France. This music video is absurd and I love it.
Scarlet Pimpernel is quintessentially French, and so is the artwork of Georges Seurat. This seemed like the best way to close out the playlist.
