Most-Recorded Waltzes
The Top Ten Waltzes of the Century

This list ranks the top ten most-recorded waltzes out of the 199 distinct waltzes on the indexed recordings. The tunes are ranked in descending order of number of recordings. When tunes have the same number of recordings, tunes having the oldest recordings appear first. Note that reuses of a particular cut in later anthologies are counted, which is fair, since the popularity of a recording is a good indicator both of the popularity of the tune and of the likelihood that musicians will learn the tune from that recording.
