This is a music website, and you may be able to get limited free website access through your local library. The music categories did not make it easy for me to find non-English songs, but they are present. The genres are alphabetized, and it’s not intuitive to find French music with the Q’s under the genre “Quebecois/Francophone,” and under V’s as “VARIÉTÉ FRANÇAISE,” but that’s where you’ll find it at the time of this writing.
Whistlefritz ¡A Bailar! Let’s Dance! has very fun songs in Spanish or French. They’re really good. This is part of a curriculum for children but you can use just the songs if you’d like. Some are free to listen to with an Amazon Prime membership.
