In all these recordings, I found only ONE the same mistake that almost all pianists make today. But this mistake, as usual, is made in each measure of each song.
Having received my answer this young teacher recorded the same songs without this error. Now they sound much better.
In order to make this error more noticeable, I put the corrected version FIRST here, and the initial version - the SECOND.
I invite everyone to notice this error and suggest a way to correct it.
I ask everyone who can, to indicate to me at least one record available for listening on the Internet, on which the pianist does not make this mistake.
Thank you in advance for the web address and for listening to my recordings!

Each piece is recorded TWICE. The first time - it is the version that I personally prefer, the second version - standard way to play that is (unfortunately) taught in ALL music schools. Many musicians believe that this is the only possible way to perform. I oppose this point of view by my post "20+"
I am not a native English speaker. In my (Russian) language music without lyrics is called a "piece", not a"song". Some experts in English protest against the usage of the word "song" for instrumental piece. However, the majority of people around me call every short musical work "song" and protest my attempts to call it piece. So, I am not sure about it.
Especially, when I recorded several real songs (like "My Way") as well in this post.
Sorry about the reference to songs. I did recognise that there were some songs in your list. Even a person speaking on the BBC tonight described Fur Elise as a song !
I have listened to three of the recordings this evening, all three being music to songs. With one of these I had a simplified score at hand and this was the first I listened to, Paul Anka's My Way.
Speaking as a trained scientist who plays piano a little, I found the second recording more to my taste because I thought it best represented the phrasing of the lyrics without disregarding the strong beats of each measure. In the first recording the first beat of each measure seemed to overpower the natural phrasing I would expect with the words. So it looks like with this example I came up with the wrong answer.
The other two examples 'Happy Birthday' and 'Jingles Bells' I thought the musical phrasing of the first play through was the better of the two.
I recorded SPECIALLY for you another song and put it in a separate post. I will appreciate your comments and I am curious: which version of it you will like more?
If you tell me your ethnical background - I will make recording of your folksong as example of right and wrong stresses.
