Contemporary Waltz Songs

I'm trying to find good contemporary popular songs that are waltzes. There are a few that I know of such as Journey's "Open Arms", Dan Fogelberg's "Run for the Roses", The Commodore's "Still (AKA Three Times a Lady)". I don't know of too many recent ones. I would like to compile a selection to play for dance parties, etc. Any suggestions?

Some of my suggestions are :

Love You Every Second - Charlie Landsborough
Not That I Care - Ricky Van Shelton
I Meant Every Word He Said - Ricky Van Shelton

They are nice but have strong country 'feel'.

Would love to exchange music on Ballroom / Latin music with fellow members

Seal - Kiss from a Rose
Aretha Franklin - A natural Woman
Elvis - Are you lonely tonight
Carpenters - Rainbow Connection
Dave Matthews Band - Satttelite (sort of a waltz)
Harold Melvin & the Blue Notes - If you don't know me by now

Hope that helps,

Nocturne from Secret garden is lovely. I like melancholy music though.
My absolute favourites are the first two songs on "Best of Ballroom 11" (Casa Musica i think). Dark waltz and "greenwaves" (this is also secret garden). How could anyone not dance wekk to that lovely solo violin?
Unfortunately, if you listen to the segment of "greenwaves" on this site, it only goes to the end of the introduction. After this intro, the music develops into something gorgeous.

Phil. have you heard " She moves through the Fair" . by Boyzone. It has a real Irish flavour about it. Best of Ballroom Music Part 12. On the same disk a song called The Magic of Love by Lionel Richie and Russel Watson is a beauty, but a bit hard to dance to timing wise. Secret Garden is on there too.

I'm not the only one by Sam Smith
Stay with me is quite good too.
There my favourites because I am only 6 years old.
If you are doing a Paso double toxic by Britney Spears is good.
