Discussion in 'Ballroom Dance' started by Meagan, Sep 7, 2014.
Perhaps, but I suspect there is more than a little bit of image manipulation going on there, and in her Shake It Off video.
Here's a waltz by Sir Elton John, The New Fever Waltz, from his latest album, The Diving Board, released 2013. It's more of an American waltz, but you'd still probably want to slow it down a bit.
Here are a couple from Harry Connick, Jr.'s latest album, Every Man Should Know:
- Time to Go (Waltz)
- One Fine Thing (Foxtrot)
The title track is a waltz, too, although a bit on the fast side.
I'd be curious to see if your college kids could handle doing a quickstep to Problem by Ariana Granda and Iggy Azalea on the My Everything album. It was released in April 2014.
And just for fun, there might be somebody out there looking for a new merengue:
Most of my Viennese Waltzes are "old", but I did find one released in the last two years (Dec. 2012), Just a Fool by Christina Aguilera on her Lotus album.
Did someone say, "Quickstep?"
Man Like That
If You Are Wondering
Okay, this one's not new. But it's still a fine peabody. (!!!)
Sia - my love is a nice waltz. ALthouogh the song is over 2 years, (under 5?) so it may already be on your playlist
LOL I don't think quickstep will happen until late October but I will try and make that happen for you Maybe I'll even secret a video...

We should keep this going. I think everyone needs a new playlist every now and then.
Life's being all crazy with the start of school, but when I get a chance to sit down and comb through my lists, I'll share some, Meagan!
When I first heard Don't on the radio the first thing I thought was "I can't wait to see the WC Jack n Jills that come out of this!!"
Oh definitely!! Plus our new songs will hardly be new in a couple months
To add to the list some of mine (although I'm truly bad at this):
Hideaway by Kiesza (once it gets going)
Hustle: (heard someone play this remix at a social for hustle)
Take Care Remix by Rihanna ft. Drake
And cause time is running out on this one, it may have already passed the 2 year requirement but its still on the radio so...
When I Was Your Man by Bruno Mars
Come with Me Now Kongos is a good rockish quickstep.
I totally love this tango
Here's another waltz: . I wouldn't say the song was 'new' exactly (first recorded in 1972), but it's a new rendition by from her Everlasting album released in April 2014.
If You Don't Know Me By Now
I am definitely going to use this one!!
