A Paris Playlist

We leave for Paris in two days! Whenever I take a trip, I like to make a playlist of music that fits my destination.  I've been in Paris many times, but curiously, I've never made a Paris playlist. So, here's my first attempt: some obvious choices, some not so obvious; most in French, a few in English (pour mon mari, Eric, qui ne parle pas français)... Alors, on y va!

1.  I Love Paris (Frank Sinatra)
2.  Paris (Edith Piaf)
3.  Sous le ciel de Paris (Yves Montand)
4.  La valse d'Amélie
5.  Les yeux ouverts (Enzo Enzo)
6.  C'est si bon (Emilie-Claire Barlow)
7.  Belle (Jack Johnson)
8.  Je veux (ZAZ)
9.  Ces soirées-là (Yannick)
10. La Belle et le bad boy (MC Solaar)
11. Mansard Roof (Vampire Weekend)
