    I really like these three:

    "Jean", by Rod McKuen - it was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Original Song from "The Prime Of Miss Jean Brodie". The recording by Oliver was #1 for 4 weeks on the Adult Contemporary charts in 1969.

    "I'm Easy" , by Keith Carradine. It won the 1975 Academy Award for Best Original Song from "Nashville".

    The non-Iz version of "Over the Rainbow", by Harold Arlen and Yip Harburg - It won the Academy Award for Best Original Song for "The Wizard of Oz", and became Judy Garland's Theme Song.

    I use all three when I gig.

    Bill Mc said Louise. If that's the Paul Siebel song from his Woodsmoke & Oranges LP, I must agree. It's the first song my wife ever heard me sing circa 1980. She has said, "He won my heart with a song about a dead hooker."

    I've found myself playing If I Had You a lot lately and Walkin' My Baby Back Home.

    And trees whisper, "Day is ending
    My thoughts are ever wending

    I was just thinking of this one. Great tune.

    A few others I like:

    Your Song- Elton John
    Count Your Blessings -Irving Berlin, (from White Christmas)
    Don't Let the Sun Catch You Crying- Gerry and the Pacemakers
    Keep Me in Your Heart- Warren Zevon
    No Hard Feelings-Avett Brothers
    Will You Still Love me Tomorrow- Carole King
    They're in Love, Where am I -The Weepies
    Across the Universe, and Goodnight-The Beatles

    As Tom Waits was mentioned, there are so many good ones- Ol' 55, You can never hold Back Spring, Time, Innocent When You Dream

    More and more great songs keep popping into my head, but I'll stop here for now
