Monthly Music Mix: Juste L’amour


If there is one culture on this planet that knows love like the back of their own hands, it is the French. Les françaises walk the earth with that certain je ne sais quoi and they live life like they owe it to romance. Perhaps richest in such sentiment was the music of the yé-yé movement that started in the late 1950s.

Drenched in innocence, whimsy and affection for Valentine’s Day, our playlist this month is sent from Paris, with love:
