I love the idea of using song titles!
I encourage others to give it a try.
Note: I consider "I'm" to be one syllable. Is that cheating???
Here are some I wrote:

   Body and Soul -- Sway.
   All I Do Is Dream of You.

  Stranger on the Shore,
  Just a Closer Walk With Thee.
  Stardust Melody.

  Si Tu Vois Ma Mere,
  Sophisticated Lady,
  Love Is Here To Stay.

  When I Fall In Love,
  You've Got Me Under Your Skin.
  I Surrender Dear.

  I'm Glad There Is You --
  The Bad and the Beautiful,
  All The Things You Are.

On the naughty side:

  The Touch of Your Lips --
  Through the Night, Thou Swell.
  Shake It and Break It.

On the knotty side:

   The Song Is Ended.
   A Hundred Years From Today,
   It Don't Mean a Thing.
