How about some modern(ish) ones?
Shiver by Coldplay.
Will rack brain for more...
Norwegian Wood by The Beatles - not exactly new but surely preferable to The Old Rugged Cross et al!
Shadow by Britney is in 6/8 but it's a bit rubbish and not as well known as some of her other stuff.
From the Inside by Linkin Park.
I Have Nothing by Whitney Houston.
Breakaway by Kelly Clarkson.
I like 'Breakaway' as it will allow me to mention duplets (if I'm feeling brave). I've seen Norwegian Wood in 3/4 although it has a 6/8 feel at the right tempo and I've also seen copies in 6/8.
Thanks for the suggestions; I think I am sorted now.
I don't actually use The Old Rugged Cross but I put it in the handbook to show how lessons might link to music the pupils experience in other contexts.
