Vive La France – In Music!


Today is Bastille Day –

The French national holiday when they celebrate the storming of the Bastille prison during the French Revolution.

Over the years, musicians have used French in their lyrics-

The world’s unofficial language of love has been used by The Beatles in ‘Michelle’, Talking Heads in ‘Psycho Killer’, Bill Wyman in ‘Je suis un Rockstar’, Prince’s ‘Girls and Boys’, Sting in ‘Perfect Love Gone Away’ and in several tracks by Blondie: ‘French Kissin’ in the USA’, ‘Sunday Girl’ and of course ‘Denis’.
