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!!!
