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
