    What about the Dance With Me one? I have NO idea who does it, and can't find it anywhere, but here are the lyrics:

    When day is gone
    and night comes on
    until the dark
    what do I do

    I grasp your hand
    and wander through slumberland
    dream dancing with you

    we dance between
    the sky so blue,
    and fields of green
    sparkling with dew

    it's just sublime
    whenever I spend my time

    dreamdancing with you

    Macha, I like those lyrics a lot!

    I wonder if anyone knows what it is from?!!?

    Found it

    It is a Cole Porter song called Dream Dancing. Typically sung by Ella Fitzgerald. Doesnt sound like a V.Waltz though... I will have to see if there is another performance of it.

    Songs for Viennese Waltz

    Here are some that I have not seen mentioned in this thread:

    So Far Away-Staind
    Turning-Suzanne Ciani
    The Killing Moon-Nouvelle Vague
    That's Amore-Dean Martin

    and at our studio's Christmas dance, The Carol Of The Bells made for a great (but kind of fast) Viennese Waltz. I just hung on and tried not to hit anybody!;)

    Please correct me, but I hear 6/8 so Vienniese waltz does not fit.

    I don't remember the last thread I saw discussing time signatures in waltz (or what the musical purists said waltz was, 3/4 or 6/8 ) but this could certainly be a vwaltz... 6 steps, 6 beats, no problems.

    Opendoor- :confused:I'm not sure what you mean, but we dance Viennese waltz to the Staind song So Far Away all the time at our studio. If you think you can't dance to it, then don't... but I sure will. Of V-waltz songs it's on the slow side.

    One more to add to the list here is Nothing Else Matters by Metallica.:rocker:

    My wife and I went on a cruise and we danced V-waltz to Wonderful Wonderful Copenhagen (while in Copenhagen... how cool is that!), Mr Bojangles, and My Favorite Things from The Sound Of Music.
