much as I always hated Misty, it should be on the list. The others are all good choices too.

"Sway" seems to be in a lot of movies the last few years, that's a good old tune as well.

There is a great song called "A porters love song to a chambermaid", of all people, Bobby Short is where I first heard it. The lyrics are by Andy Razaf (Honeysuckle Rose, Black and Blue, Keepin Outta Mischief)  ... seek out songs by him he wrote witty lyrics and worked with some of the nest songsmiths Fats Waller (Ain't Misbehavin called out earlier) , Hoagy Carmichael, Eubie Blake and many more.
