I have realized that I am a huge fan of Charles Trenet
- which other French-language singers should I be listening to? In particular, I'm looking for singers who capture that same combination of nostalgia and sentimentality, without quite the melancholia of a Charles Aznavour or a Jacques Brel.
Note that I have plenty of Edith Piaf, and I dislike Maurice Chevalier for other reasons.
