So...we may have had to look up Bastille Day just to make sure we have the facts straight, and in case you also have to, Bastille Day is basically France's July 4th! Fireworks abound! Educate yoself with this quickie article on the history of Bastille Day and why it should matter to Americans too. Basically, one of the Louis kings was having a financial crisis, shit got cray, and the French people stormed the Bastille, a fortress where the French monarchy was imprisoning peeps for speaking out. Censorship be damned, now we have La Fete Nationale.
Enjoy some French wine, mon frere Pierre, while you listen to our Bastille Day playlists!
Full disclosure: I don't listen to a lot of French music so this list is pretty limited. To pad it I included some of my favorite native French artists singing in English. That counts, right?
I actually listen to French music which sounds super pretentious, but c'est la vie, bitches! (Why did you think I didn't have a 4th playlist?) In fact, I'm listening to this now!
