Interesting Songs in C?

Just wondering what other "interesting" songs in C there are. By interesting, I do not mean plodding up and down the octave scale, like in High Point.

Mon Vieux Wagon is interesting.
Ossun is interesting.

I don't play these two yet, but:
Tit Galop is interesting.
Octa's Two Step is interesting.

In part, I'm talking stuff that does fancy C fingerwork more in that G position.

Which others? I'm needing to add more C songs to my repertoire, but stuff like High Point just bores the bejeezus out of me.
