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.

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.

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")
