There are a few songs that I start out by reading the music and then realize I have no idea where I am on the sheet. I am playing from memory and by sound - really fun when I realize it. But then when my focus goes back to the sheet I go blank!!

Great Lists Everyone.
I don't have a current list but here are some of the songs I know by heart:..some might need "refreshing" But I could play them pretty well (well as far as knowing the notes...) with 5 or 10 minute prep. Some would need a bit more time to refresh, but at one time or another I could just play them without sheet. So here is the list of what I call my Dong Songs (long story)..
Somewhere Over the Rainbow
Star of the County Down
Frosty the Snowman
O Holy Night
Silent Night / Two Keys
Red River Valley
Ode to Joy
Star Spangled Banner
A Time for Us
The First Noel
A Time for Us (Theme from Titanic, haven't played this one in a while...would take a bit to refresh)
** I know some more Christmas Songs, I mostly play from memory but have the sheet on my stand
O Christmas Tree
O Little Town Of Bethlehem
O Come all Ye Faithful
Minuet, Bach Essentials one book
Yesterday (Lennon and McCartney)
Flowers of Edenburgh
and many more keep popping up.
Anyone just starting out.... get excited... get real excited, practice, practice, learn from the forums and chat on the chatbox, and you will just fly through a couple years and have Dong Songs..and more. WOOT WOOT
Vibrato Desperato.... Desperately seeking vibrato
