Any suggestions for songs for solo piano for a "Mad Men" theme cocktail party? I'm thinking:

Mack The Knife
Fly Me To The Moon - Sinatra
Smoke Gets In Your Eyes - The Platters
Guantanamera
Take Five
Fever
Georgia
That's Amore
Ain't Misbehavin'
Satin Doll
All Of Me
As Time Goes By
Blue Moon

Here's a list of actual songs used in the series, I don't think many of these actually suit the characters very well :

Some are from The Great American Song Book and there's pop stuff from the 60's and 50's

Yep, absolutely rat pack ... here's an old Dino one that's pretty easy using a New Orleans style bass line:
