Music is my favorite form of art because it has such a powerful effect on listeners. It can transport you and set the tone and make you feel things so intensely. And because of its temporality, it forces you to enjoy it in each moment before it disappears into the universe. I especially love a particular type of classic French music that manages to stop me in my tracks and makes me long for Paris, with each grand romantic note and melody. Since I’m living in the South of France this summer and these songs are playing on repeat in my head while I walk around this perfect little French seaside town, I wanted to share them with you. I listen to this playlist often, and especially before bed so that my dreams are filled with beautiful Parisian musings. These are the songs that will make you want to fly to Paris right now, I hope you enjoy them.
