A nightingale sang in Berkely Square
Let’s do it
Love walked in
Anything goes
Makin’ whoopee
Around the world
Moonlight in Vermont
Blue Tango
My funny valentine
Calico skies
My love
Embraceable you
O sole mio
Every time we say goodbye
Pennies from heaven
Fawlty Towers
Scarborough fair
Fly me to the moon
She’s my baby
Funiculi, funicula
Slap that bass
Someone to watch over me
Irish Sherry
Sunrise, sunset
I got rhythm
Is you is or is you aint my baby
The folks who live on the hill
Jeeves & Wooster
The man I love
Joplin rags
There’s no business like showbusiness
Leaning on a lamppost
What kind of fool am I
