hmm

what type of French music exactly?

jazz? pop? of which era?

for jazz I recommend this group called Paris Combo

for 60s pop/rock I dig Jacques Dutronc, Francoise Hardy, people like that

80s/early 90s I highly recommend the rock group Noir Desir. My favourite song of theirs is a collaboration with Manu Chao called 'Le Vent Nous Portera', which is a very good tune.

I'm not too familiar with the modern stuff, but there's this great recent single by this (Parisian?) band called Kyo titled 'Derniere Danse' which is really good.

I must say, that is a great tune....

As Yertle has already mentioned, KYO - I also love the Noir désir & Manu Chao song.

French hip-hop - MC Solaar (I really like La belle et le bad boy) & IAM.

Not a French band, but 'Bonnie and Clyde' by Luna is in French. Quite good too

Also, you may like to hear 'Protege Moi' by Placebo (also not a French band, but the song is in French). It did quite well as a single in France from what I understand.

There is also a French version of 'Burger Queen' by Placebo. I need to get my hands on it.

I like Joe Dassin, as well as Manu Chao (but his stuff is definitely in languages in addition to French, mostly Spanish and English).

Deep Forest are French, but their music comes in a wide, and I do mean wide, variety of languages.
