I studied French in high school and earned bachelor’s and master’s degrees in French in the US, and was always on the lookout for ways to immerse myself in authentic, current French culture. I listened to as much French music as possible to practice my French, finding the lyrics and teaching myself to sing along, but it was really hard to find much in the Midwest in the early 2000s. When I first arrived in France, I realized just how little I knew of everyday French life and common cultural references.
