    Depends what you would like. Would you like lyrics? or straight music? You want something to tap your feet to or something to sway back and for to?

    I'll assume you're looking for a variety, so here are some of my favorites.

    Most of the classic big bands had singers, but the released some nice tunes without singers:

    Artie Shaw - Begin the Beguine

    Artie Shaw - Frenesi

    Benny Goodman - Let's Dance

    Count Basie - Corner Pocket

    Count Basie - Easy Does It

    Count Basie - Satin Doll

    Erskine Hawkins - Tuxedo Junction

    Glenn Miller - A String of Pearls

    Glenn Miller - Moonlight Serenade

    Glenn Miller - Pennsylvania 6-5000

    Harry James - All of Me

    Jimmy Dorsey - All This and Heaven Too

    Lionel Hampton - Don't Be That Way

    Lionel Hampton - Flying Home

    Tommy Dorsey - I'm Getting Setimental Over You

    Tommy Dorsey - Opus One

    Willie Bryant - A Viper's Moan

    If you're looking for songs with singers, then I recommend:

    Andrews Sisters - Bei Mir Bist Du Schon

    Andrews Sisters - Don't Sit Under the Apple Tree

    Anita O'Day - Boogie Blues

    Anita O'Day - Just a Little Bit South of North Carolina

    Benny Goodman - Goodnight My Love

    Bobby Darin - Beyond the Sea

    Bobby Darin - I'm Beginning to See the Light

    Bobby Darin - The Good Life

    Dean Martin - True Love

    Dinah Washington - Our Love is Here to Stay

    Doris Day - Deam a Little Dream of Me

    Ella Fitzgerald - 'S Wonderful

    Ella Fitzgerald - A Fine Romance

    Ella Fitzgerald with Louis Armstrong - The Way You Look Tonight

    Frank Sinatra - Cheek to Cheek

    Frank Sinatra - Lean Baby

    Harry Connick Jr. - A Wink and a Smile

    Harry Connick Jr. - L.O.V.E.

    Kay Kyser - On A Slow Boat To China

    Louis Armstrong - Mack the Knife

    Louis Prima - I'm In The Mood For Love

    Peggy Lee - Alright, Okay, You Win (I'm in Love with You)

    Renee Olstead - Sunday Kind of Love

    Tony Bennett - The Best Is Yet To Come

    Woody Herman - Makin' Whoopee

    Additionally I recommend finding more songs by the artists you like. Genually speaking, every big band / swing artists put out some up tempo fun songs and some nice slow romantic songs.

    Additonally you should look up The Bill Elliot Swing Orchestra (featured in the movie "The Wedding Crashers") and the SoundTrack to the Movie "De-Lovely" which has a lot of fun songs about love.

    Hope that helps!!!
