I`m going to give this some thought,but what dimpf and Rosa mentioned I think are great songs:
Girl From Ipanema-I agree on that
Caravan-brilliant song,Juan Tizol wrote it,trombonist for Duke Ellington`s orchestra in the 30 and 40`s.
Cry Me A River-Julie London`s version is the most famous,I love Dinah Washington`s version too.
Moon River-my Dad had a Mancini record he used to play this from,Peter Gunn was on it too,Mancini wrote some brilliant material.
I like all the other ones dimpf and Rosa mentioned.

In terms of old standards,here`s some of my favs:
Stella By Starlight
All The Things You Are
I`ve Got You Under My Skin
All Or Nothing At All
Just One Of Those Things
What Is This Thing Called Love
I Can`t Get Started

I`ll think up more later.
