Looking for examples of pop music written for symphonic orchestra or that draws heavy use of typical symphonic instruments.
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.
