I love French Music.
Not all French Music, but more like the French music that everyone thinks of when someone in the US refers to French Music.
The stuff that French cafe's were made of. A combination between Latin-Quarter Jazz, smokey vocals and poppy new agey sounds.
I love to listen it while blogging, or when I'm savouring a glass of red while cooking, or when I'm taking a nice bubble bath or when I need a quick armchair trip to Paris.
Some of my fav's include Madeleine Peyroux, Carla Bruni, Jane Birkin, Serge Gainsbourg. I especially like good compilation CD's, like the Amelie soundtrack. It's the mix of different voices and instruments. I found a pretty good one in Pier One last year for under $10, called Paris Metro. I played the hell out of that one.
So, on my recent visit to Starbucks, when I saw this staring me in the face, I knew it had to be mine.
The description alone pulled at the ol' heart strings.
"Inspired by French café culture, this collection is a state of mind- where friends drink coffee, eat, discuss the issues of the day, love and live…all to a soundtrack of stirring music."
Yes please! Sign me up!
So, if you are in the market for a little Paris cafe music wafting through your maison, head over to your local Starbucks or online and pick up a Paris-pick-me-up for $12.95.
