Saint Tropez

Only one single known from this band with an odd name, Oyster, in 1979. Could easily have been the main theme for a European B-grade comedy movie from that era…

Le Messager

Not disco at all, not even electronic, but nonetheless worth listening. The OST of Joseph Losey‘s The Go-Between by Michel Legrand.

Michel Legrand – Theme From “Le Messager” (1972)

Interesting trivia, the main theme from the French TV documentaries Faites Entrer L’Accusé is directly inspired by this piece of work. The piano melody from the intro is almost identical (section not included in the preview).
