"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")
They are a bit old, but I like these: Kenny Rogers - If I Were a Painting Andy Williams - My Coloring Book Andy Williams - Charade Goya Matsuda - Moving On J Johnny Mathis - Foolish Tom Jones - Funny Familiar Forgotten Feeling Dinah Washington - Fly Me To The Moon Until It's Time For You To Go - Don't know the artist
Agree wholeheartedly with "Charade" by Andy Williams. Maybe not "contemporary" if you mean written within the last couple of years, but it may be the best Waltz I've ever heard. Another good one from approximately the same time is the "Godfather Waltz". There are several good versions but the Henry Mancini version is my favorite. It's a little slower than average, but that allows more time for "expression". (And the Godfather "Love Theme" is a great Bolero.)
