For something fast, that almost is better for Viennese, a great song is "Iris" by the Goo Goo Dolls. Julianne Hough and Helio Castroneves chose that song for their wonderful V Waltz on Dancing with the Stars. So it is a tad faster than a traditional waltz.
Another one by Billy Preston and Syretta would be "With You I'm Born Again." This is a great one for a slow waltz, one I have used when teaching newlyweds for their first dance.

Un Giorno Por Noi... but it's LONG
Un Dia Llegara, both of these by Josh Groban- he had a few others I can't think of at the moment but they're "weird"- you have to think/improvise, something the partner balks at because Alex Moore inside his head tells him to focus on syllabus instead ( )

Also off the Spirit: Stallion of the Cimmarron soundtrack there were several.

Mannheim Steamroller's Fresh Aire 8 has "Waterfalls", too.

A few off the beaten path:

-- "The End of August" by Yanni (I'd go with one of his shorter versions of the song, tho...)

-- "Kind of Woman" by Stevie Nicks (just because she's not one you'd automatically think of doing a waltz)

-- "Caribbean Blue" by Enya

-- "You're My #1" by Enrique Iglesias

Hello all - I wonder if you can help. I'm trying to find what dance would be best to try to do for our 'first dance' at our wedding next year to Built to Last by Melee... we really like the song but not sure what we could do to it - would it be a waltz?

Thanks for any help!

"Open Arms" by Journey is good.

Also, I'm directing a play (based on the Princess and the Pea fairy tale) and we need a good contemporary waltz song. I'm going to look through the ones posted here, but if anyone knows a waltz song for a ball scene that is not really romantic (the Prince is being forced to dance with a bunch of fluffy-headed princesses and an unpleasant, scheming one; the princess he will marry comes in near the end of the scene but doesn't dance) I would really appreciate it.
