10.     Zaz- je veux 
"Most of these songs are not only my favorite but also my husband’s. It’s very important for me to have a partner with similar tastes, as they're the person I want to live life with! You can see, we are vintage folks when it comes to music. I can barely name 1 or 2 songs from the last year that I like. Zaz is the youngest in the list. 
Well, I thought about Adele but it had to take some time for the song to jump here.
All of the songs are confirmed by our little 2 years old son. He's enjoyed them since he was a baby. And when he learned to walk he started to dance and sing, too."
