Song list

Just some of the Numbers we have in the CMO library
Moonlight serenade
Hawaiian war chant
Sing sing sing
Minnie The moocher
She caught the Katy
The Shadow of your smile
Come in from the Rain
Suspicious minds
Diamonds are a girls best friend
Don’t leave me this way
By the light of the silvery moon
Don’t sit under the apple tree (duet)
Mad about the boy
Anyone who had a heart
Mambo italiano
Chatanooga choo choo
Do nothing till you hear from me
Embraceable you
How long has this been going on
The lady is a tramp
Love is here to stay
The man I love
Moonlight in Vermont
Nice work if you can get it
You do something to me
How high the moon
I get a kick out of you
I’ve got you under my skin
Just friends
My funny valentine
Night & day
Somethings gotta give
Summer wind
