wow, I tried google but ended up with a lot of so called Latin songs which were actually Spanish or Italian...

This link is good, I will study it hard and see whether I can perform some of them..

You can Google for some Elvis Presley songs in Latin, they're pretty cool. You might also want to listen to Carl Orff's Carmina Burana, the settings are very tuneful and fun to sing (plus the poems themselves are often quite good). You can also look for the various recordings of the original Medieval settings of the Carmina Burana, many of those are also tuneful and easy to sing.

Must have Gaudeamus Igitur too.

Btw, IMO Orff's Catulli Carmina is a lesser work, the poems don't really lend themselves to the treatment. Better to simply memorize a batch of Catullus for spontaneous recitation.
