Well. Loving the list, and can't help but pile on.

"Jack and Lucy" sung by Bill Grant and Delia Bell
"Just a Ride" by Jem
"Willin'" rendered by Little Feat
"Crepuscular Air," Mose Allison
"Blue Wing," Tom Russell
"Luxury Liner" sung by Emmylou Harris
Eric Satie's Gymnopedies
"Autumn in New York" sung by Ella
"What a Wonderful World" -- I like both Louis Armstrong's (of course) and the Ramones' version

Even thinking about this music makes me smile.
