After recently getting obsessed with the french 60s pop of France Gall i am looking for pop songs that use symphonic orchestration. Especially the songs "poupee de cire..." and "polichinelle" with its use of cembalo and flute have impressed me.
I dont want ballads or jazz influenced song but more of the fast pop sound typical of the two songs mentioned. Neither am i looking for songs that was written for other instruments and rearranged.
