Also, because I've recently been listening to it: Tipsy has got you covered with the hyper-saccharine Cocktail Lounge music that just washes over you with the warm and fuzzies. It's like a demented Saturday morning cartoon and awesome for it.

This was an Italian band that lived in the Netherlands in the seventies, see their story here. The pianist is the father of one of the most popular Dutch singers, Marco Borsato

Yep!
As with many "pop singers" from those years most of the songs are written by pretty great artists / covers of other artists.
I've been meaning to find a collection of France Gall songs sung in german since a few years ago I heard that Computer nr 3 version i linked in another post here, and that album I found is quite a nice collection indeed!
For example, I like the german-sung-sped-up version of Bébé requin more than the original


France Gall - Haifischbaby



Btw, there are many great versions of "I shall sing", I might end up doing a "mixtape" just with those ahahaha!


Also, this might ring a bell for some sy listeners

France Gall - Teenie Weenie Boppie


And as correctly stated in the article you linked, Viva la Pappa's music was originally written by the GREAT composer Nino Rota (The Godfather, Amarcord, just to name a couple of his many many masterpieces) ,with lyrics by Lina Wertmuller, a pretty interesting and unconventional screenwriter/director. No wonder even "silly" pop music from the 60-70s still stand out as GREAT music to this day.
