historic anniversary on our site this week.
I thought I'd start with a look at our five most popular posts over that five-year period might be worthwhile.
Tal - Le Sens de la Vie
Sexion D'assaut - Avant qu'elle parte
Martin Solveig - Ready 2 Go
Commercial break: David Guetta
Johnny Hallyday: Ten great French versions of English songs
I think it reflects the popularity of some of France's biggest stars, and it's no surprise that the next five of the top ten of all time includes Mylène Farmer, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Vanessa Paradis and 1995, as well as more Johnny Hallyday.
The fact that Sexion d'assaut and 1995 are in the list is significant, given that rap is massively popular in France, and while often critically overlooked it remains as valid a means of musical expression as indie, electro or chanson, while these might be areas more commonly associated with French music.
We'll be looking much more at some of France's developing acts in the future, but we won't be overlooking some of the others who have made the French music scene the fascinating area that it has become.
