MISTY repertoire is extensive and varied. The following song list is only a sample - actual repertoire is considerably more extensive.

When I fall in love
Falling into you
Almost like being in love
The first time ever I saw your face
My guy
Over the rainbow
Orange coloured sky
Everything I do (I do it for you)
Big spender
Where do I begin
How do I live
The very thought of you
Perhaps Perhaps
At last
The rose
Don't know why
Looking through your eyes
New York
The day you went away
Killing me softly
Tennessee waltz
Danny boy
Natural woman
Still the one
Saving all my love for you
Cry me a river
Ain't no sunshine
Bette Davis eyes
Down so long
Sway (Bic Runga)
Unchained melody
Wasn't it good
Close to you
Say a little prayer
Come away with me
Foolish games
Stormy Monday
You send me
You were meant for me
Can't take my eyes off of you
Autumn leaves
You don't know me
