All that Jazz
Bei dir war es immer so schoen
Beauty and the Beast
Blame it on the Moon
Bridge over Troubled Water
Children will Listen
Don’t cry for me Argentina
Diamonds are Forever
Eggs in a Basket
Hine e Hine
Heaven Slips away
I like the way he makes me feel
I hope I never
I don’t know
Ich Gehoer nur mir
I have a Love
I Dreamed a Dream
If you go away
Keep Moving the Line
Le Jazz Hot
Ladies who Lunch
Losing my Mind
Miss Otis Regrets
Maybe this Time
Never Never Never
Out here on my Own
Suddenly New Zealand
Something in the way
Send in the Clowns
The way we Were
Time in a Bottle
We Never said Goodbye
What I did for Love
Whistle Down the Wind
You must Love me
