French Women and French Chansons

This is the Youtube playlist for my book, French Women’s Confidence Secrets.  The idea is that readers can listen to these songs while reading the book. I tried to include both older and more recent hits, all sung by female vocalists. If anyone can think of any further French chansons, by female vocalists, that should be included, please let me know in the comments. I have run out of ideas. If you would like to listen to the playlist, please click on the picture at the bottom of the page.

The first track is the book trailer:

  1. What a great idea it must have taken you a while to compile this list. What a woman – writing a book plus the play list. I’m impressed!

  2. Wonderful idea to accompany the book! I just ordered the Kindle book on Amazon and can’t wait to read it–and listen!

    1. You are calm and confident already, Molly,(we won’t mention the incident with the curtain rail in the hotel room) that is why I appreciate you buying the book so much.

    1. Klink na ‘n plan! en baie welkom ook. Ek het my verkyk vanoggend aan die foto’s op jou blog, veral die foto van die wilde perde. My Pa is in Keetmanshoop gebore en ons het gereeld in Suid-Wes gekuier toe ek jonger (baie jonger) was.
