    The Baseballs do old time rock covers of many popular songs. Most of there stuff turns out to be quickstep or swing/jive (perhaps with a little tempo tweaking) but they've got a few foxtrots as well. Notably:

    Don't Cha (wish you're girlfriend...) - Album: Strike! Back!
    California Gurls - Album: Strings N' Stripes

    Also, there's a foxtrot version of Sweet Dreams (are made of this) from the album Ballroom Nights 2.

    We decided on Glee's clean cover version of Amy Winehouse's "Back to Black." :D

    Emphasis on clean. I've known the Glee version for a very long time now, and I only heard the original a few days ago. Imagine my surprise before the song had played very far.

    I'd say you're both wrong. I'd go with Nightclub Two-Step.

    A little fast for NC2S.

    I put this in the category of songs isn't quite right for any dance but close enough to a number of dances that you can do about anything, if you have the talent.

    My partner's and my competitive goal is to make it to an Open Smooth final where we get to dance to My Bombombomb by Mo Horizons for the fox.

    I can hear both. I wouldn't choose either. I don't know NC2S, so...

    the tempo isn't right.

    more traditional sounding songs from untraditional artists include:

    sinead o'connor on "secret love"

    in the jazz realm:
    ben webster "in a mellow tone"

    "pennies from heaven"

    david sanborn "hallelujah i love her so" (james taylor)

    diana krall "charmed life"

    kenny burrell: "squeeze me"

    madeleine peyroux "fun out of life"


    jeff healey: "time on my hands" (his last album last call is VERY different)

    keb' mo': "isn't she lovely":

    There is a foxtrot version of Tainted Love on The Ultimate Ballroom 16 - Temptation, I quite enjoy that, although I still sing along with the Marilyn Manson version in my head.
