Let me make a big disclaimer up front - I don't actually really LIKE every song that you will see on French Music Monday. But I do like most of them, and they all have some place in the world of French music - if only because they're ubiquitous or a cultural landmark.
And the very first video to ever play on MTV France?????
Axel Bauer - Cargo de Nuit. Hommage to the movie Querelle, which I did NOT like. But this is a catchy little song which I still hear every time I'm in Paris.
