Please recommend classic, Great American Songbook-style slow love songs.

Some of my favorites are:
Duke Ellington's "I Didn't Know About You"
Billy Eckstine's "Don't Tell Me"
Ray Noble's "The Very Thought of You"
"Time After Time" by Sammy Cahn and Jule Styne
I'm especially looking for slow songs about happy-ending love - so, lyrically, the sense of "Time After Time".
(I do also like sad torchy songs, so if you've got one of those, that's welcome too.)
(And yes, I recognize that any of these can be done in a fast, peppy style, and probably has been.)
