Re: Contemporary Waltz Songs

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.

Sweet Afton by Nickel Creek is a good SLOW waltz...

Something a little faster is Lentil by SIA...

Let's see..Aerosmith (Don't want to miss a thing)...Journey (Open Arms)...Debbie Boone (You Light up my life)...Billy Vera (At this moment)...Nora Jones (Come Away With Me)...Queen (most of "Bohemien Rhapsody")...Elvis Presley (Are You Lonesome Tonight)...
there, that's a start

This is several years after the original question, but I am in a dance showcase in Nov and have been looking for contemporary waltz music and found something I wanted to add here:
Queen - One Year of Love.

Moonriver. For the true feeling of a Modern Waltz.
