Any thoughts? I would nominate 'Goin Back' by Dusty Springfield, and almost any version of 'Trains and Boats and Planes'.

Lots, but I think this should be one.

Chants d'Auvergne (French pronunciation: ​[ʃɑ̃ dovɛːʁɲ]; English: Songs from the Auvergne) is a collection of folk songs from the Auvergne region of France arranged for soprano voice and orchestra or piano by Joseph Canteloube between 1923 and 1930. The songs are in the local language, Occitan. The best known of the songs is the "Baïlèro", which has been frequently recorded and performed in slight variations of Canteloube's arrangement, such as for choir or instrumental instead of the original soprano solo.

The first recording, of eleven of the songs, was by Madeleine Grey in 1930, with an ensemble conducted by Élie Cohen. The songs are part of the standard repertoire and have been recorded by many singers.

The melodic elements of two of these songs, "Baïlèro" and "Obal, din lou limouzi (La-bas dans le limousin)", were incorporated into William Walton's soundtrack for Laurence Olivier's film Henry V. "Baïlèro" (sometimes known as "Le Baylere" or "The Shepherd's Song") has also been re-arranged for full chorus by Goff Richards for the National Youth Choir of Great Britain.[1] It was recorded by Tony Osborne Sound for use in a Dubonnet advertisement in 1972.[2]

Something from the lovely voice of Karen Carpenter, perhaps?

You're welcome Clover.
There are many beautiful songs from that era. I think Elton would appear on the "list" numerous times.

Calling Occupants is one the best tunes ever. Karen was an amazing singer. I wish she hadn't died so young.
Another one from Karen C:

Solitaire- I love the versions by Andy Williams and slightly cheesier version by The Carpenters. In my teenage years I was a real fan of rock and punk but slipped this onto the record player regularly
