Are you including only music that would be candidates for the soundtrack of the series? Because there are probably other references, such as Judd singing, "People Will Say We're In Love."

It's worth noting at least some of these choices were referenced in the graphic novel.

"You're My Thrill" gets played on Nite Owl's airship after or as he and Laurie rescue people from a tenement fire and/or get busy.

"Unforgettable" I think is music that goes with the commercial for one of Veidt's products, a perfume called Nostalgia.

"Ride of the Valkyries" is mentioned in one of the excerpts from "Under the Hood," the autobiography by the first Nite Owl. He recounts how his father's boss at an auto repair shop had a collection of novelty items, including fake women's breasts. He revealed to his employees that his wife left him for an employee while Wagner was playing and while he was wearing the fake breasts. But instead of provoking sympathy, people started laughing at the ridiculousness of the situation, and the boss ended up committing suicide.
