In no particular order, and some of these were far more common 30 or 40 years 
ago than they are today, in my searches, and probably a lot I've left out:

You Can't Be True Dear--Ken Griffin (of course)
Bluebird of Happiness--Jan Peerce
Tchaikovsky Piano Concerto--Vladimir Horowitz
It's In the Book--Johnny Standley
Polonaise in A Flat--Jose Iturbi
Two Black Crows Pts. 1 & 2
Rain--Frank Petty Trio (I used to find this everywhere)
A Gay Caballero--Frank Crumit
Tennessee Waltz--Patti Page
Pop Corn Man--Benny Goodman (just testing)
