    France's best female artist

    This cd includes all the hit singles of Mylene who just won her 4th Music Award in France for the 4th year in a row. This music award is the equivalent of the "people's choice" award since the people voted and the music industry was not involved in the vote. It's been 19 years that Mylene sings and somehow, she remains unknown in the US. Probably because of the French language. Unlike Celine Dion and co. she writes her own lyrics that are intelligent, sensitive, and touch someone's life. Her unic voice and "short movie" music videos will make you see how she deserves to be known in the US too. Mylene Farmer is a Singer with a great Talent.

    A must have for any Mylene fan: new or old!

    This best-of contains all of Mylene's top singles from her very first (Maman a tort 1985) to her latest (2001-Les Mots a duet with British superstar Seal). Sulfurous, provocative, crystalline-voiced Mylene has produced some of the finest music of the century and remains unknown (by majority) only in the United States. She has had more top singles in France than ANY other modern-day competitor (including Celine Dion and Johnny Hallyday). She will make you laugh, she will make you cry, you will fall in love with her immediately! Buy this today.
