I've read the book entirely with a headphone on my head and with the streaming music app Deezer playing the songs mentioned in the book. I've made a playlist and I counted about 400 chansons. Some popular French songs I knew before, but I've discovered some real beautiful songs which I think I would never have discovered without this book. As a cartoon passionate, I like humorous songs. An example is a parody of Je t'aime moi non plus (Serge Gainsbourg) by the famous Bourvil and Jacqueline Maillan.
Of course, there is a cartoon book related to this article that I can present to you: it is Musiques by the French cartoonist Claude Serre. Some cartoons make me think at certain chansonniers...
|this man makes me think at Jacques Brel|
|The man with the guitar makes me think at Georges Brassens...|
(and myself reading Chanson with a headphone on...)
|Makes me think at Johnny Hallyday...|
|Makes me think at the orchestra of Charles Trenet (Boum)|
|"La Mélodie du bonheur" (The Sound of Music) ? Do Re Mi...|
