We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
On the other hand, I have to admit you're redefined my definition of the term "eclectic music tastes" over the years. So you've got that going for you.
Myself, when it comes to French songs, I was always more of an Edith Piaf kinda guy. It totally made the movie 'Babe: Pig In The City'.
Of course, for any of you who actually like classic French music, there's always this. Mary Hopkin, the archtypical English bird of the time. The album cover I had was at the 3:10 mark. I just heard it for the first time in years and I'm still wiping away a tear over poor Prince en Avignon's fate. I'm sure you will be, too.
