I will never understand WHY, the correct style of music is abandoned for "Pop" styles.
The latin music world is replete with fab. music for all tastes, and so readily available .
When dealing with total beginners, any advantage you can use can't hurt. A bit of a tongue in cheek post.

personally. I do not consider using non latin songs , advantageous. They create a false dichotomy..

As to TIC, some may take the suggestions seriously, as we see in some club DJs, who perpetuate that style.

This is right, but still you are wrong: always the music defines the dancing. Of course the opener will actually learn something, but not salsa. The aim is not that steps will work to a certain kind of music (viennese steps will work on certain swing tunes, but dancing is a cultural thing, not a technical).

My advice, there are some salsa apps around. The opener can slower down the tempo and practice anytime and everywhere he goes.

I need these songs for teaching salsa. So a beginner should be able to dance to it. Therefore the songs shut be between 140 and 180 bpm.

I do not want to slow the songs down. I prefer to use the original songs for teaching salsa.

Then the songs I named, will work .

Why not just slow down the Tempo of Salsa songs you like, but are a bit too fast?
Windows Media Player used to be able to do this - right click and look under "Enhancements".
If the new versions don't support this, there is plenty of free software that will.

Many salsa romántica songs will work for that. However, the type of salsa also depends on which salsa style you teach. Very slow music is difficult to dance to for beginners.

Here some slow songs:
Rey Ruíz - Amiga: Rey Ruíz - No me acostumbro: Conjunto Chaney - Atrévete a ser mi amante: Manolo Lezcano - Amor, amor:
These are all very Purto Rican songs and it is harder for beginners to find the rhythm than with e. g. Colombian salsa songs where you can hear every single beat. Since I love Puerto Rican salsa and am not an expert on Colombian salsa, I cannot think of suitable slow Colombian salsa songs.
