"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.
