Last Monday, it was Bastille Day, so here’s a five song celebration of all things French, not the band Bastille. (Talking of which, it’s just over a month until I see them play live)

5. Jamie N Commons – Have A Little Faith

I had totally forgotten that it was Bastille Day last weekend. How unprofessional of me not to do a chart to commemorate it. Ironically, the band Bastille aren’t on it. Not that ironic, they’re not French so aren’t eligible.

2. Desireless – Voyage Voyage
3. Phoenix – Entertainment
4. Daft Punk – Robot Rock
5. Air – Sexy Boy
