Below are the new songs Faux Paz have introduced over the last few years.  This list gives a fairly good representation of our current repertoire; however, not every song we sing is listed, and likewise, we don't still sing every song listed below.  To see what songs Faux Paz have performed in the past, check out some of our older albums, or see this not-so-exhaustive list.

Songs in Yellow are in our current set. Click the title for a video (if available)!
