3 Belle - Patrick Fiori, Garou & Daniel Lavoie
4 Le Jardin Du Luxembourg - Joe Dassin

6 Ne Me Quitte Pas - Jacques Brel
7 Comment Te Dire Adieu? - Françoise Hardy
8 Madame Rêve - Alain Bashung

Of course, I didn't see this list earlier! Beau travail (as usual), Metal_Treasure!
This song is beautiful, Bashung had a really sexy voice and was a great artist. - Lotuscandy

9 Je Suis Venu Te Dire Que Je M'en Vais - Serge Gainsbourg
10 Mon légionnaire - Serge Gainsbourg

It's a cover of a 1936 song, Gainsbourg's male voice singing the lyrics made famous by Edith Piaf gave the song a strong homoerotic undertone. This new version of "Mon légionnaire" released in 1987 was a hit on French dance floors, both gay and heterosexual. - Lotuscandy

The Contenders

11 Les sucettes - France Gall

Written by Serge Gainsbourg and first recorded in 1966 by France Gall, it was an unusually risqué song for its time.
On the surface, it's a yé-yé style song about a girl named Annie who likes aniseed-flavoured lollipops, but Gainsbourg's lyric also contains playful double meanings referring to oral sex, such as a line about barley sugar running down Annie's throat. The very noun for lollypop in French, "sucette", is the substantivised verb "sucer", sucking - so that the title and the refrain (Annie aime les sucettes) are far more evocative in French than in the English translation. The song also features a direct double entendre, stating that Annie has lollipops "pour quelques pennies" (for a few pennies), which can also be heard as "pour quelques pénis" (for a few penises).
Gall, aged 18, did not understand the double meaning of the song when she recorded it. By Gall's account she did not realize until later why the filming of the clip attracted so many visitors to the set. ...more - Lotuscandy

21 Dis-Lui Toi Que Je T'aime - Vanessa Paradis

In 1990, Serge Gainsbourg wrote the lyrics for Vanessa Paradis's 2nd album, from which this song is a single. It will be his last artistic testimony, before his death, nine months after the release of the record. - Lotuscandy

22 Ma Petite Entreprise - Alain Bashung

As often with Bashung this song has a double meaning, the first one is obvious (= my small business), the second, more subtle, is that he talks about "his" little business (his penis). - Lotuscandy

23 À Ma Place - Axel Bauer

It's a duet with Zazie. - Lotuscandy

One of my mom's favorites!
And yes, the sample is a karaoke version, without his incredible voice... I reported it! - Lotuscandy
