Deadsplinter Up! All Night: Bastille Day

Let’s celebrate Bastille Day with some French artists, songs in French or any songs of celebration you like.  Here’s some of my favorite French artists.  I think I may have done a whole DUAN on these guys previously, definitely some of my favorites in the Gypsy Jazz genre…

and if reggae is more of your thing…

or 80’s Buttrock…

or Hip Hop…

or if Indie Pop is more your thing…

Whatever your pleasure, open up a nice French wine & celebrate Bastille Day or Friday Eve. Enjoy your night.



  1. Music from two of my favorite French films.

    1. Les Parapluies de Cherbourg (The Umbrellas of Cherbourg, 1964), the movie that made Catherine Deneuve famous:

    2. The restaurant scene from Jacques Tati’s Playtime (1967):

    (The original is obviously in black and white; this is a horrendously colorized clip)


    Maurice Chevalier – C’est Magnifique


    Not French but it feels like the perfect song for tonight.

    I wanna live expensive like Marie Antoinette

    Boyfriend – Marie Antoinette
