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

Something a little faster is Lentil by SIA...

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.

Is the song in 3/4 time? If it is, you can waltz to it. If you can't recognize the rhythm then you will have a tough time dancing any dance to any song.

"Slow Dance" - Michael Peterson
"Put Your Dreams Away" - Frank Sinatra
"I Will Love You" - Fisher
"Sleepsong" - Secret Garden
"Since You Asked" - Natalie Cole
"The Old House" - Phil Coulter (piano)
"Thr Green Fields of France" - Phil Coulter (piano)
"Natasha" - Phil Coulter (piano and not strict tempo)
"May Each Day" - Andy Williams
"Remember" - Andy Williams
"Illusion" - Nat King Cole
"At This Moment" - Michael Buble'

I don't think anyone else has mentioned any of these, and some are among my all-time favorites. My wife insisted on "Slow Dance" for our wedding song. (I would have preferred "Since You Asked")
