Oh my. I just saw this. What a wonderful "outpouring" and an introduction. The links are excellent!

I must put in a plug for some particular music from La Belle Province. Ouch! (That's a Canuck thing, pay no nevermind) As I am in southeastern New Brunswick, Canada, I know many Acadian musios worthy, but, I don't think of them as "French". I think of Canuck "French" as from Quebec... like Harmonium... one of the most talented and amazing group or artists I have ever heard.

I searched for a couple of particular tunes of theirs which enthralled me some 25 years ago, but I could not locate them. I did find one, which, although not necessarily typical, may give some slight insight to the talent within Harmonium.

There first album, "Harmonium", is a treasure... trust me.

Monique, you're being a bit vague with the geography... I love Nougaro, who's definitely a toulousain (may he be singing on the right hand of whoever's up there !) but in the summer I can see Cabrel's house from my in-laws' summer house and it's definitely near Astaffort, 100 kms from Toulouse. He supports Agen in rugby, and not Toulouse, I'm sure (for his sins).
Anyway - can I put up a few that are more of my generation than yours or Cabrel's (I'm 15 or so years younger than him) :

First off, a Breton cousin - Christophe Miossec - man, can this fella write a song :
Miossec - Brest

On to these guys who are most definitely (110%) from Toulouse. I saw them in Dublin in the 90s with approx. 9 other people - here they are doing a wonderful 'joute verbale' in a magnificent setting :
Fabulous Troubadours - Si tu te fais

Then across the south of France to Marseille, to the equally wonderful Massilia Sound System, encouraging us in the local lingo to talk the local lingo (Occitan/Provencal) :
Massilia Sound System - Parla Patois

Back to Toulouse again for Zebda's famous 'replique' to Chirac's extremely indelicate comment on immigrants (they give gainful employment to an Irish fiddler, these boys) :
Zebda - Le Bruit et l'odeur

Further south into French Catalonia - that gave us Bruno Cali (who loves Ireland and has worked with ex-Waterboy Steve Wickham). Here he is wasting his talents on tourists in the cablecar that goes up to the Sacre Couer in Montmartre. I don't think a finer song has ever been written in appreciation of the female posterior :
Cali - La fin du monde

Up a bit to Paris, and Renaud who has put well-meaning but rather simplistic (regarding his analysis of the Troubles) French lyrics to the wonderful Scottish (?) melody 'The Water is Wide' :
Renaud - La ballade nord-irlandaise

More Breton cousins, this time with a French transposition of a song you should all recognise :
Tri Yann - La ville que j'ai tant aimée

And finally, the Fleming Arno, doing a cover of a song by the great French poet Leo Ferré. Unfortunately, it's one of those mobile phone captures - but I think he gets the message across all the same :
Arno - Comme à Ostende

Sorry for being so longwinded - but they're well able to write a song - those damn French (and Catalans, and Basques, and Bretons, and Marseille heads, and Corsicans.... )

Sure I'm being vague with the geography Seán, but people would more easily figure out which large area he comes from if I say Toulouse. I'm glad you added some younger ones (I'm indeed 2 years older than Cabrel) and Massilia and Fabulous Troubadours. Those Coriandre are an Occitan trad. group.

Here's another one Florent Pagny

In less than a day, this thread has introduced me to more French singers/musicians than the BBC has in the past 50 years!

Sean Baite: In your posting you said of Bruno Cali's song La Fin du Monde:                                                                         "I don't think a finer song has ever been written in appreciation of the female posterior"

Now, has this subject matter been the theme of other French songs and, if so, can you give details.

Recognised you no problems, Monique - are you in or around Toulouse ? For geography, I'm in Agen - where a guy at the market made me ask for saucisse d'Agen once instead of saucisse de Toulouse - they're just a little bit 'chauvin' sometimes...
Love the Polnareff one - especially as he was taking in a lot of English influences at that time. My kids heard it on the TV the other day and went - 'what the hell is that ?' - more generation gap trouble coming up :-<
Gnu and Katlaughing, if it's stuff from that lovely place across the Ocean from Ireland you're after here's a couple more :

Richard Desjardins - great voice/great writer/great song - sorry the vid and the sentiment is a bit anti-American :
Richard Desjardins - Les Yankees

Some kind soul has put up a whole TV concert of the great Felix Leclerc :
Felix Leclerc - Whole Concert

A nice a capella delivery by Acadian singer, Pierre Robichaud, outlining the perks of working as a gardener in a convent :
Pierre Robichaud - Le jardinier du couvent

The same fella with one that's a bit commercial and reggae-ised - but the landscape's lovely (looks a lot like the west of Ireland/Scotland - apart from when they've blued up the sky with Photoshop :->)
Pierre Robichaud - Aux iles de la Madeleine

Enjoy - and ain't the internet great ? The BBC is grand enough - but stuff in French only comes along sporadically - with the web, we're pure spoilt...

Mike - douze points to Hardy any day - beautiful woman and singer - a lot less to Vartan. She's an ex-wife of Hallyday - and is actually Bulgarian originally, believe it or not ! To find your thread on Hardy again - change the filter at the top of the page to '3 days or a week' and refresh - it's still there.

Tunesmith, as to the female posterior in French music - I'm sure there are many instances as they're generally a lot more comfortable with their bodies than us in the English-speaking world (one of their great qualities). I can't immediately think of too many. I remember Brel's 'Madame promene son cul sur les remparts de Varsovie...' but it's hardly very appreciative of the said posterior.

Brassens, I'm sure has written a good few fairly 'carnal' songs - that Giok fella should know a few. Then, of course, there's Gainsbourg - 'Initiales BB' being his famous tribute to Bardot. He admires most parts of her in it - not sure if he mentions her derrière - he even got her to sing it, the sod !

Look closely at the video by Cali, there's a poor wee auld lady that's starts getting a bit flustered when she hears the words of the song - priceless ! So bang goes my gross generalisation about the whole French nation being comfortable about their bodies...

Tunesmith, there's a Georges Brassens's song called "Vénus callipyge" that talks about it and another one called "Le blason" about the "front side" which is a very beautiful tribute to the women's most intimate parts. Lyrics on Paroles.net, no English translation available as far as I could check.

Seán, I'm in Montpellier. If you're in Agen, then you're not that far from Castelsarrasin, birth place to Pierre Perret who wrote this Lili beautiful song against racism. And you'll also want to listen to "Mon p'tit loup" one addressed to a girl who's been raped.

We haven't much heard of Polnareff during quite a lot of time. Here's a nice old one Sous quelle étoile suis-je né? Bercy and you'll find "Love me please love me" there too.

The Fabulous Troubadours' "Si tu te fais" has a pretty collection of words that every student of French would like to know and they'd dash to check The Alternative Dictionary (Dirty words from around the world in a BIG lot of languages)

Yes Monique, have heard a bit of Perret - always amused that he bears exactly the same name as the lead songwriter of the Only Ones -a great English band from a little before Téléphone (Another Girl, Another Planet). My wife taught in Castelsarrasin for a year.
I couldn't watch a clip from Bercy, I'd feel like the taxmen'd track me down :-> Even if it's Polnareff.
I noticed the 'rich' vocabulary used by the 2 troubadours - they should put on a performance for that old lady in the cable car, I think - or maybe not, if she's a bit cardiac.
As a native of Joyce's hometown - never had any problem with those sort of words - revelled in them actually - now the practical side was another matter :->
