    Try "Both Sides Now" by Joni Mitchell as performed by Dave Van Ronk. She's said that his version was the best cover of her song.

    Some of the songs listed as slow here are still a bit stressfull for me, due to many chord changes. An example is Autumn Leaves. Perhaps it doesnt help that I tried to go chord melody on it, makes things more difficult.

    A slow song with rather easy chord changes, though there are many of them, is "everybody's talking at me".
    That D, Dmaj7, D7 and D6 progression is so easy to play.

    Alternative rock shout-out...Dave Grohl and Eddie Vedder both have a crap-ton of mellow, ukulele-friendly tunes. Vedder even made a uke album.

    Joe Brown's version of "I'll See You In My Dreams" has become a favorite of mine, in part because I recently learned that it was popular in 1925, the year my Mom was born. And wow, has it stood the test of time! Joe closed out the Concert for George Harrison with that one several years ago. At the first refrain, all the other musicians stop playing and it's just Joe and his uke and voice, and it's a great example of how the simplicity of a uke and a voice can be so lovely and poignant. There's a nice clip of that online if you search "Joe Brown closes out the concert for George".
