20 Songs They’re Listening to in France

By Sarah

After hearing Lady Gaga and Shakira blaring from every car in Italy, I was thrilled when I found French tunes in homes, streets and radios from Bordeaux to Lyon.  I stayed in five homes and shared car rides with seven different people.  Each passed along their favorites tunes to me.  This is a sampling from the hundreds that were given to me:

1. Babylon Circus — La Cigarette

2. Emilie Simon — Fleur de Saison

3. Caravan Palace — Jolie Coquine

4. Ska-P — Legalizacion

5. Florence The Machine — Dog Days are Over

6. La Rue Ketanou — Les Hommes Que J’aime

7. Pony Pony Run Run — Hey You

8.  Fairground Attraction — Find my Love

9.  Babylon Circus — Des Fois

10. Jean-Jacques Goldman — Et L’on N’y Peut Rien

11. Caravan Palace — Suzy

12.  Babylon Circus — Perdu

13. Amadou & Mariam — Africa Feat K’naan

14. Renan Luce – On N’Est Pas a Un Betise Pres

15. BB Brunes — Dis Moi

16. Thomas Fersen – Deux Pieds

17. Noir Desir & Les Tetes Raides — L’iditente

18. George Brassens — Le Parapluie

19.  Benabar — Y’a Une Fille Qu’habite Chez Moi

20. Ska-P — A La Mierda

About sistersbailey

We are Perrin and Sarah Bailey, collectively known as “The Sisters Bailey”. The moniker was born out of a crazy weekend at the 2009 New Orleans Jazz Fest and it was the first time we had ever been referred to as one unit. We grew up in Alexandria, VA together and then separated for college - Perrin to The University of Pennsylvania and Sarah to Northwestern University – and somehow landed together in New York after graduation. It was in the midst of the hustle of Manhattan that we became friends for the first time in years. Somehow we landed jobs in the same industry - Sarah worked in marketing at HBO and Perrin managed creative digital promotions for her media agency’s main client, Disney - just three blocks from one another. One day we decided to leave our jobs, sell our belongings and travel abroad with a backpack and a collective savings of $10K. The stories of our continuing adventures and those of other fearless travelers are here to inspire you.
