What song is this? (French techno sounding song)

So, while I was out earlier I heard a song that sounded like a techno song but with an accordion playing over the beat. Any ideas? Thanks.

I'm gonna take a guess and say Gotan Project's "Santa Maria (del Buen Ayre)"

Nope, that wasn't it. The song had a techno like beat to it. I think there may have been a lady singing. They were playing top 40 dance type music, so it may be something that is mainstream.

Nope , that wasn't it. In the song, the accordion is something you would hear playing if you were at a French cafe.

Pretty much, just a little more up tempo, with a techno beat. They were playing it at a bowling alley. So, I assume it couldn't be too obscure of a group.

I almost didn't get it, I actually at how vague the OP was, but then the French cafe thing made me thing of French songs. That's the only one I know, and it's got an accordion.

If you like songs similar to that (weird, but good), check out 'Dreams' from Forest For The Trees, it's got bagpipes.

So.. where's my $5?!

I think someone needs to be contacted about multiple accounts.

I was going to guess "Hey Soul Sister" by Train.
