I think this is probably the best place to start.
C. L. Messina
I am really impressed with the quality of the music as well as the book containing lyrics and band biographies.

The music is current -- and very French -- a good introduction to current French culture!!

I was once traveling on the train through Paris looking for a concert venue. I asked a stranger for help pointing to my map within a travel guide. The front of the guide had a stereotypical graying old fellow on the cover wearing a beret, obviously enjoying his work in the vineyard. The French stranger chuckled at the cover and said, 'typical'. The French, certainly the young ones, are well-aware that the world sees them like this and are also aware that France is much more varied and (certainly in the city) much more in step with or even ahead of the times. I think that slips past our own culture (I'm an American) and new students need something to shake that image out of their heads.

So we take French in High School and are beaten over the head with rules we often forget under the pressure of maintaining grade point averages. We try to learn the language on our own and there we are again but now we're being babied. We're learning about apples and oranges, what color dad's coat is and so forth. We need to know those things but I've come to learn that we need something more. We need more than soccer and cheese. We need a piece of the culture that speaks to us, that makes us LOVE France and gives us better insight into what France is about. I think this is probably the best place to start.

Mind you, I actually was using this technique before I stumbled on the book. The process is straight-forward. Find a foreign song you LOVE and you'll WANT to learn the words. You'll likely get proper pronunciation in the process. After you learn the words, learn the translation and you've got one more piece to your language puzzle. It works. For example, how many kids know about Friar/Brother Jacob?

I am learning French and thought I would try this product. I am really impressed with the quality of the music as well as the book containing lyrics and band biographies. This is well produced and well worth the money in my opinion. French music takes a little getting used to but it is very creative. The tunes do run through my mind and the words take on meaning.

I have enjoyed this CD and have purchased it for friends too. On my first listen, I immediately liked only two of the songs, but music is a matter of personal taste and after listening to this CD a few more times, I appreciated more of the songs. This CD will not teach you French, but it can improve your French a bit if you already know some. I use some of the phrases I learned from these songs in my daily life now, having recently moved to France.

I thought this was a fun idea, but there were a lot of typographical errors in the French lyrics. The proofreader didn't do a very good job. I'm a French teacher and was disappointed by the mistakes in the text.
