Spotify playlist: France Goes Beat

Jacques Dutronc

This is the toughest playlist I’ve done for a while, but the France Goes Beat Spotify playlist is now available should want to give a whirl.

The problem, essentially, was that most of the tracks I wanted to put on here, a mix of 1960s French beat, psych and other similar grooves, were not available in Spotify. So I had to think of replacements…then more replacements. You get the idea.

But I have managed to get 20+ tracks in the end, hopefully it was worth the effort. If you can think of anything missing (and on Spotify), do let us know in the comments section below. Be great to hear from you.

Alternatively, the direct link is here or you can access it via the embedded playlist below.
