Come fly with me
I’ve got you under my skin
Fly me to the moon.
Satin Doll
Lady is a tramp
When I fall in love
Lullaby of birdland
Have you met Miss Jones
La Mer ( Beyond the sea )
Mack the knife
It had to be you
Route 66
The summer wind
Girl from Ipanema
Night and day
Moon river
I can’t give you anything but love
Sentimental journey
Our love is here to stay
I could write a book
Let there be love
A foggy day
Honeysuckle rose
The way you look tonight
Autumn leaves
East of the sun
September in the rain
But not for me
Love me or leave me
On the sunnyside of the street
As time goes by
September in the rain
Cry me a river
Don’t get around much anymore
Blue Moon
Sometimes I’m happy
The very thought of you
Moonlight in Vermont
Ain’t misbehaving
After you’ve gone
Almost like being in love
This can’t be love
Let’s fall in love
Im gonna sit right down and write myself a letter
Teach me tonight
Embraceable you
Hallelujah I just love her so
You don’t know me
Hit the road jack
Here’s that rainy day
It’s only a paper moon
It’s all right with me
How high the moon
I’ve got rhythm
I only have eyes for you
It don’t mean a thing (if it ain’t got that swing)
I wish you love
Let’s do it
Making whoopie
Mean to me
The nearness of you
You go to my head
A nightingale sang in Berkeley Square
On a clear day
Pennies from heaven
Quando quando quando
Something stupid
Straighten up and fly right
Strangers in the night
The more I see you
I’m in the mood for love
Save the last dance for me
Can’t take my eyes off you
Just the way you are
Slow boat to China
