Subject: RE: Music creating 'French cafe' atmosphere
Bit late in this thread - sorry.

My mother ran a French restaurant in Kensington in the 50s-60s, with piano & accordion & live singers. The customers most liked hearing sort of folkie well-known songs -

Aupres de Ma Blonde
Chevaliers de la Table Ronde
Jeanneton Prend sa Fourcille
Savez-Vous Planter Les Choux?

Some pop standards by the likes of Trenet

La Mer
Je Cherches Fortune Autour du Chat Noir
