3- Mozart's Requiem?
Remember that time you & Jon freaked me the hell out by playing on a jam box in the cemetary on one of our post-midnight jaunts?
6- Guantanemara - by Celia Cruz?
16 - Que Sera Sera - Doris Day?
20 - Upside down by Tori Amos?

I think a bunch of these are probably zydeco songs that I am not familiar with.

Right on all counts, except the version of Que Sera Sera that came up is from Pink Martini's album "Sympathique" (which of course is impossible to tell from just the opening line).

Oh yeah, and while more than one selection from the Big Ol' Box of New Orleans did pop up, none of them are Zydeco numbers. Jazz and/or blues.

I'm going to guess that #7 is "Aniron," from The Fellowship of the Ring. If it isn't, damn if I'm not going to Google.
