Tu trouveras

By far my favourite French singer of this century is actually Canadian: Natasha St-Pier. So far she has released 5 albums and topped the French album and singles charts regularly. Her finest song is Tu trouveras, a hit single from her third album De l'amour le mieux (released in 2002, the year we moved from Singapore to France). It deals with a love relationship in which St-Pier admits her mistakes and her weaknesses. The words "Tu trouveras", sung in the refrain, are performed by fellow singer Pascal Obispo. A French treat.
Art Rock score: 9/10 (very strong song, one of 650 best songs of all time)
