Zoom on the song "Casser la voix" by Patrick Bruel 

Let's take a closer look at Patrick Bruel's song "Casser la voix".

This song allowed him to break through in music and distinguish himself from others.

He would have written this song as a cry of frustration, a cry that brought him to success.

I hope you'll like this playlist! 🎶

 I have tried my best to put on different styles that have been discovered over the years.

Even though a lot of English songs also made us dance, sing and cry.

I really selected popular French music so that you can at best improve your French with beautiful songs.

See you next week for the big playlist from 1995 to today.
