A fine romance
A foggy day
Ain’t misbehaving’
Ain’t she sweet
Ain’t that a kick in the head
All I do is dream of you
All of me
All or nothing at all
All the way
Almost like being in love
An evening in Roma
Angel eyes
Anything goes
Autumn in New York
Bad, bad Leroy Brown
Bare Necessities
Bewitched, bothered and bewildered
Beyond the sea
Birth of the blues
Blue moon
Blue skies
Body & Soul
Buena Sera
Bye bye blackbird
Corcovado (Quiet nights of quiet stars)
Call me irresponsible
Can’t take my eyes off you
Cheek to cheek
Come dance with me
Come fly with me
Come rain or come shine
Crazy little thing called love
Crazy Love
Cruella de Vile
Cry me a river
Enjoy yourself (It’s later than you think)
Everybody loves somebody sometime
Every breath you take
Fascinating rhythm
Feeling good
Fly me to the moon
For once in my life
From this moment on
Gee baby aint I good to you
Get Happy
Girl from Ipanema
Georgia on my mind
Goody Goody
Haven’t met you yet
Have you met Miss Jones
Heartache tonight
Hit the road Jack
How about you
How sweet it is
I can’t give you anything but love
I could have danced all night
I don’t get around much anymore
If I could write a book
I get a kick out of you
I left my heart in San Francisco
I’ll never be the same
I love being here with you
I’m gonna sit right down and write myself a letter
In the wee small hours
I only have eyes for you
Is you is or is you ain’t my baby
It don’t mean a thing (If it ain’t got that swing)
It had better be tonight
It had to be you
I thought about you
It’s alright with me
Its delovely
It’s only a paper moon
It was a very good year
I’ve got the world on a string
I’ve got you under my skin
I’ve grown accustomed to her face
I wanna be around
I wanna be like you (oh oo bee doo)
I won’t dance
Just in time
Just one of those things
King of the road
Kissing a fool
Learnin’ the blues
Lets face the music and dance
Lets fall in love
Let there be love
Little girl blue
Little ole wine drinker me
Love and marriage
Love me or leave me
Luck be a lady
Lush Life
Mack the knife
Makin whoopee
Mambo Italiano
Me & Mrs. Jones
Memories are made of this
Minnie the Moocher
Moonlight in Vermont
Mr. Bojangles
My Baby just cares for me
My funny valentine
My kinda town (Chicago)
My way
Nature Boy
New York, New York
Nice and Easy
Night and day
Old devil moon
On a clear day
On an evening in Roma
One for my baby
On the sunny side of the street
Our love is here to stay
Papa Loves Mambo
Perhaps, Perhaps, Perhaps
Please be kind
Pennies from heaven
Portrait of my love
Put your head on my shoulder
Puttin on the Ritz
Quando, Quando, Quando
Rags to riches
Route 66
Satin Doll
Saturday night (is the loneliest night of the week)
September song
Somethings gotta give
Something stupid
Song for you
Stars fell on Alabama
Steppin out with my baby
Strangers in the night
Taking a chance on love
That old black magic
That old devil moon
That’s all
That’s amore
That’s life
The best is yet to come
The Charleston
The good life
The lady is a tramp
The look of love
The most beautiful girl in the world
