As I’m trying to figure out what the right fit is for our first dance, I thought that I might not be the only person struggling through this. So, I decided to compile five songs – in different genres, of course! – that could all make for your perfect dance. From country to indie, rock to pop, there’s a little something for everyone.
Song #1: “The Lucky Ones” by Radney Foster
For a moment or two
Get to fall in love with somebody like you.”
Song #2: “In the Aeroplane Over the Sea” by Neutral Milk Hotel
Let us lay in the sun
and count every beautiful thing we can see.”
Song #3: “Fire & Dynamite” by Drew Holcomb and the Neighbors
You make me nervous; you make my heart beat.
You are red in a sea of black and white;
You are a fire. You are dynamite.”
Song #4: “The Way I Am” by Ingrid Michaelson
Than I could ever promise
And you take me the way I am.
You take me the way I am.”
Song #5: “Anyone Else” by Collin Raye
Yeah I know we can’t afford it but life doesn’t last too long
This world has gone half-crazy
And knocked us both to our knees
I’m fumbling for the words to try to tell ya
I love you for hangin’ onto me.”
Song #6: “I Love How You Love Me” by Beth Orton
I love how you think of me without being told to
I love the way your touch is always heavenly
But, darling, most of all I love how you love me.”
What songs are you thinking about for your own wedding – or, if you’re already married, what song did you choose?
