July 2012 Update - finding the right music for dancing

So I had a mega practice session yesterday. Working my way through all the beginner steps. Realized I should record myself a slightly faster soundtrack. (see link below)

I also noticed a trend. Its the steps with lots of sequential shuffles that I struggle with....I keep going out of time when I do them.

I also had a go at recording a waltz for practicing the waltz time clog steps from the workshop I went to.

I'm finding it hard to find a waltz I can play that 'fits' the steps. Any suggestions? What elements in a tune should I be looking for?

Oh, here is a tune I've taken a liking too wonder if I can dance to it?
