MIX #5: Celeste's Mix

"My musical tastes might seem a bit random because I match it
to my mood. What is good for snowboarding on a windy day just won't work for falling in love or cleaning the bathroom. I really appreciate solid writing and interesting, layered lyrics but good music transcends language. So I included tracks and mixes by Francophone DJs and singers who don't restrict themselves to
the French language. I hope something in my playlist inspires
you (and not just to clean!)" -Celeste
Tracks: 46 - Artists: 24.

MIX #6: David's Mix

"I enjoy emotional performers and powerful lyrics ("textes engagés"). I also like the energy coming out of more instrumental or rap songs. I listen to my MP3 player everywhere I go, so music
is an important part of my daily life." -David
Tracks: 46 - Artists: 23.

MIX #7: Jean-Louis' Mix

"My musical choices are modern and eclectic, and range from electronica to chanson, from Raï to hip hop. Some songs are in Arabic, some in English, and most are in French. Regardless of
the language they come wrapped in, all the tracks testify to the diversity and richness of contemporary French music. In a word, today, French music rocks in all styles and all languages! (and as a bonus, I added a couple of classics!)" -Jean-Louis
Tracks: 45 - Artists: 38.

Très bonnes sélections, variées, pour tous les gouts (ma préférée revient à Jean-Louis ;-).

Par contre, Carla Bruni, j'adhère pas. Elle a peut-être des textes intéressants mais sa voix est une insulte à la musique.
Enfin, c'est juste mon avis ;-)
