Great list, Marta! I see some overlap with what I already have, but there's also a bunch of stuff I'll have to go looking for. Thanks!

When we were in Venice we enjoyed a tour with Christina. One of her rules for living in Venice was 'never listen to bad street music - it will kill you!'

The funny thing is, I enjoy all street music. Bad or good. It is such an enexpected treat!


We have very similar taste in music. I have a collection of French music c.d.'s and think that I might have every one of these songs! I purchased Carla Bruni's c.d. right when it came out, and hardly anyone had heard of her. Who would have thought she would be the next first lady of France? I followed the Sarkozy election pretty closely and since he was married to someone else, who would have thought that Bruni would be his wife while he was President? Any way, I have the c.d.'s of Karen Ann, Peyroux, Hardy, Clement, Pink Martini,and more on your list. I got excited when I saw how many fun songs you listed :)

There are some incredibly talented musicians playing in the streets and metros of Paris.

I love that.


great list!
I had been pondering creating a playlist for our trip. yours was a great source! We are off to paris tomorrow...

Thanks Gary. I'm glad you enjoyed my playlist. Have a great trip to Paris.
