The stories behind the songs

Françoise Hardy, Tino Rossi, Jacques Brel, Edith Piaf... They all have great stories behind their songs. Gareth Jones, our French Chanson guru, tells you more every week, exclusively on our website: Gareth is an avid record collector, occasional contributor to leading music monthly Shindig! and a passionate francophile. He lives in Hertfordshire in the UK, as quietly as a record collector can, with his partner and their two beloved cats. He has published the book 'French Pop: from Music Hall to Yé-Yé'.

And vive la French Chanson!
