Does contemporary electronica-lounge count? If so I nominate Louise Vertigo, "Ou Est La Femme" (CAUTION: VERY brief nudity; also buffers like hell -- may need to let it load for a bit)

No easy listening thread is complete without Henry Mancini:

YouTube - Moon river - Henry Mancini

YouTube - Henry Mancini & His Orchestra - Charade
Although I have to confess I prefer the arrangements Quincy Jones did for his 1964 album Quincy Jones plays Henry Mancini.

Alan Hawkshaw is a favourite:

YouTube - Alan Hawkshaw "Beat Me Til I'm Blue" mod video with images from groovy movies.

YouTube - Alan Hawkshaw - Girl at the Top

Virgin Records released several compilations with hotel-lounge-casino-poolside-airport music.
I don't remember if the whole series were named Hotel Easy,but it was one of the titles.
