    Many popular English and American songs have been sung in French. Can you be more specific about the type?

    Otherwise, I suggest:

    Le Temps qui Court, originally Could it Be Magic by Donna Summer

    les Yeux Ouverts, by Enzo Enzo, originally Dream a Little Dream of Me,

    or Pleurer des Rivières by Viktor Laszlo, Cry me a River
