http://www.moviemusic.com/CD/rudy.html  (The main title song from the movie Rudy is a nice tempo Waltz by Paul Goldsmith. This type of large orchestra Waltz music is my favorite.)
It's nice to through in a love song now and then and "Always" by Atlantic Starr is just that and a great NC2 also. Ever since the release in 1987 on the album "All In the Name of Love " this song is one of the "requested at wedding" songs. Grab someone special and glide across the floor.

A wonderful Waltz sung by Jo Stafford & Gordon MacRae titled "Whispering Hope" A little research found that they recorded this song for a 78 rpm disc in 1949. I found a site where the entire song can be played and saved as an MP3 file. It's a very good and inspirational Waltz. Click on this link to check it out.
