  • Aim High
    Aspirational Indie-Folk/Pop song with female vocal lead.
  • Amore Perduto
    Lovelorn vintage cinematic lament for lost love with cheesy electric guitar and strings. So uncool it's cool.
  • Beautiful Place
    Shiningly positive female vocal over rolling acoustic backing led by intricate sparkling chimes and mandolin. Impossibly upbeat.
  • Bonne Nuit Paris
    Dreamily romantic accordion ballad with quirky toy piano and pizzicato strings accompaniment. Cute and nostalgic.
  • Cinema Paradiso
    Amiably emotive, nostalgic accordion tune over steady guitar backing. Vintage celluloid-sounding version of 'Promenade En France'.
  • Clockwork Dolls
    Jerky toy piano, recorder, female voice and 'clockwork' sounds. Busy, surreal and weirdly cute.
  • Comedy Vacation
    Comedically upbeat skiffle with strumming guitar and exceptionally plinky piano joined by plodding double bass and vibraphone. Sunny, relaxed and fun.
  • Fantasy Sky
    Barbarella gets high on space-drugs in a rolling guitar/ethereal vocal-led, retro-psychedelic cheese-fest. Sexy, if you're French and it's 1968.
  • Haunted Ballroom
    Ghostly slow waltz with piano, celeste and creepy dulcimer glissandos.
  • Hippy Sunrise
    Dreamy retro hippy theatrical pop-rock/choral fantasy dripping with 60s/70s nostalgia.
  • Lelouch
    Dreamy, gently psychedelic, and considerably cheesy homage to the great French romances of the 60s and 70s. Retro lounge with ethereal 'la la' female vocal.
  • Make Believe
    Cute, sunny girl vocal over light acoustic folk-pop backing.
  • Meet Me In Helsinki
    Impossibly, uncannily accurate tribute to the 60s, Iron Curtain spy movie. Michael Caine gets double crossed again over vodkas with someone called Olga.
  • Nicole's Feast
    Light retro French-flavoured acoustic jazz with a clattering percussion track played on kitchen implements.
  • Nicole's Feast (Promo)
    Light retro French-flavoured acoustic jazz with a clattering percussion track played on kitchen implements. (30sec of PMOL136 tk1)
  • Paris Is For Lovers
    Retro-romantic toy piano with French female voice, joined by chamber strings for a dreamy waltz.
  • Promenade En France
    Jolly, amiable, very slightly wistful vintage French easy-listening featuring melodica over steady guitar and double bass backing. Pernod on the terrace in Biarritz, 1958.
  • She Moved Through The Fair
    Hauntingly beautiful, well-known, tragic Irish folk-ballad with stirring female harmony vocals, drones and dark trip-hop beats. Mysterious, romantic and dreamy.
  • The Cat And The Canary
    Surreal, plinky-plonk waltz with out-of-tune autoharp, piano and scratchy viola scrapes. Strange and mischievous.
  • The Enchanted Maze
    Enchanting piano, glockenspiel and female voice build to lilting waltz with a touch of magic.
  • The Girl I Want To Be
    Enchanted, waltzing toy-music/merry-go-round backing with wistful, naive pop-folk female vocal about chasing dreams.
  • The Kazoo Song
    Super-silly, super-happy, kazoo and ukulele-led spoof-Dixieland jazz - whistling joins in @ 0:27s.
  • Tinseltown Memories
    Dreamily urgent fluttering piano figures with emotional solo cello melody underneath. Ultimate nostalgic silent movie passion.
  • Toy Waltz
    Lilting nursery waltz with la-la vocal doubling wobbly bowed-saw melody over toy piano and plodding tuba bass.
  • Vintage Love Affair
    Vintage 70s Euro-cinema idea of incredibly touching and emotional, with old synths. When sad becomes funny.
