1. "My Favorite Things," John Coltrane




2. "Wind It Up," Gwen Stefani
Pop smash features prominent sample of "The Lonely Goatherd."




3. "Do-Re-Mi/ABC," Brooklyn Rundfunk Orkestrata 




4. "Sixteen Going on Seventeen," Modern Music




5. "Climb Ev'ry Mountain," Shirley Bassey




6."Edelweiss," Vince Hill




7. "The Sound of Music," Carrie Underwood
