    For me, being a person that listens to a lot of modern “alternative” music, the first two that come to mind are “idontwannabeyouanymore” and “when the party’s over”, both by Billie Eilish. The slow tempo of both of these songs makes them feel like they could be a waltz. Also, although this song is technically in 6/8, it could be counted in 3/4 just as easily, and that’s “Piano Man” by Billie Joel.

    The most innovative one, I think is Joe Cockers’ version of the Beatles hit “With a little help from our friends”

    Originally in 4/4 he wanted to create a Waltz!

    To change the time signature of a recent hit, by the worlds best band at the top of their game took some nerve! Luckily he was mates with them!

    Breakaway – Kelly Clarkson

    Runaway – The Corrs

    Piano Man – Billy Joel

    Should I hire remote software developers from Turing.com?

    It is so hard to hire strong engineers for my company in San Francisco.

    You’ve got to hide your love away by The Beatles was the first one that popped into my head, which led me to think of Norwegian Wood as well. They didn’t use it a ton, but Dylan did, like on Times They Are A Changin’ or Hard Rain.

    There are a million entries from the classic rock genre, given the prevalence of 3/4 or 6/8 in the blues, stuff like Dreams by the Allman Brothers or Since I’ve Been Loving You by Led Zeppelin. Other good rock examples that are less bluesy are Manic Depression by Hendrix or Nothing Else Matters by Metallica.

    It’s really really unusual in hip-hop, I can think of a few though, like Spaceship by Kanye West or My First Song by Jay-Z.

    And of course don’t forget My Favorite Things, and Greensleeves for that matter.

    Lucille the first country crossover hit from Kenny Rogers

    A lovely one that comes to mind:

    Elvis Costello ‘New Amsterdam’.

    Anita Baker’s beautiful ‘Body & Soul’ sounds to my ear to be in 3/4 as well.
