When its cold, wet and dreary outside, like it is today, I like to vaguely stare out of windows while listening to French music (dramatic? yes.). I find rain romantic - unless its interfering with outside plans - like concerts or parties.
Also, Little Boat suggested I make a French playlist because I featured some in last week’s mixtape.
Rainy Day French Mixtape
1. Marseilles - Hey Marseilles (I adore this band and their Beirut-like sound. This song belongs in a French movie where the two lovers finally meet again and live happily ever after.)
2. La Même Histoire - Feist (from the Paris je t'aime soundtrack - a movie I feel like watching today)
3. Comme des enfants - Coeur de Pirate (The video for this is darling. Such a sweet, girly song - like a bon bon)
4. If You Rescue Me - The Science of Sleep Soundtrack (Great/strange French film with Gael Garcia Bernal)
5. Ratatouille Main Theme - Ratatouille Soundtrack (I often find my favorite French music from films, as you can tell. I want to watch this movie today too...
6. Le festin - Camille
7. Décrocher les étoile - Keren Ann & Benjamin Biolay (Keren Ann was one of the first French artists I listened too. Listening to her reminds me of sophomore year of high school.)
8. The Summer Wind - Madeleine Peyroux (In addition to listening to French music when its raining, I also love to listen to this woman. Jazzy, Vintage and Lazy.)
9. On set loin - Keren Ann
10. Comptine D'un Autre Ete - Yann Tiersen (from the Amelie soundtrack...movie to watch today #3)
11. La Javanaise - Madeleine Peyroux
12. Complainte de la butte - Rufus Wainwright (from Moulin Rouge)
13. Belle - Jack Johnson (This used to be the most played song on my iTunes. I still love it. Its very sexy.)
14. California Rain - Madeleine Peyroux
