Summer Playlist 2021 : Road Trip in France


There are still a few weeks of summer remaining, with long days of sweltering temperatures and time to kill. Introducing our summer soundtrack with songs to drive to, roller-skate, dance, cook dinner to, whatever you have in mind! For our summer holiday, we were fortunate enough to spend the month of July in France, visiting family that we hadn't seen in 18 months. A lot of time was spent in the car, driving from Paris up to Belgium and then back down to Dijon, France and then further down to Marseille, Provence and the Luberon in the south.

Here are my favorite songs that I discovered on my trip, gathered mostly from Radio Nova ( we like to listen to it here in the US too! ), Cherie FM and a few other random radio stations. The majority are French artists but many of the songs are in English so it's not a deal breaker if you don't speak french!  

So indulge your inner francophile and hit your dancefloor of choice while enjoying these infectious melodies!
