Whoa ... that was way to cool. Thanks.

how on earth can they get away with that? We can all build our entire music library from youtube!
My favorite waltz song which I'm sure has already been mentioned on here is

Amore E Musica- Russell Watson

I find this song to be so beautiful, plus I'm a sucker for Italian songs :)
Here's another page long list of songs in 3/4. One or two are beyond my ability if danceable at all. I decided to compile the list when looking for new songs to teach with this coming weekend. I'm teaching a group of social dancers, so was looking for more contemporary pieces. Some are from this thread, many are not. I'd be happy to take more contemporary suggestions if you can think of any. Enjoy.
