Your First Dance Song?

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 
If you've been married or are planning to get married, what was/will be your first dance song with your spouse at the reception?

Oh Amy, it really depends on what song(s) is (are) special to you, but. . .

My ex and I are huge Eric Clapton fans, and it was only natural that we chose "Wonderful Tonight" for our first dance. Very romantic. I still love the pic of our first dance, even though he's no longer in my life. Captured a very special moment.

A song most people on here probably haven't heard. It's by a group called Anointed and called 'Not the I, but the You In Me.' DH and I don't dance, not seriously anyway, so we really didn't have a song before then. But I'd loved that song forever and all, so one night about 2 weeks before our wedding I was listening to Cd's with my sister and making favors and things and I put that song on and started crying. I wasn't sure it was really wedding material, but my sister told me if I was crying, it must be the one, because I never cry like that! The song came out when I was probably still in junior high, but I'll see if I can find a web page or something....

ok here is a link to thier web page... http://www.anointedonline.com/

I love reading about how people came to choosing their first dance songs .
Right now it's down between "Your Song" by Elton John (he's always playing that for me) and "Crazy Love" by Van Morrison just because we both love Van Morrison. It's hard to decide this b/c it's a moment we want to get just right!

I'm not really engaged or anything, but I KNOW that Ian and I will have a really hard time deciding between Ben Folds "The Luckiest" and ROlling Stones "Wild Horses"

"The Luckiest" was one of the songs we were thinking of, but I can't hear it without crying like an idiot, and I figured (correctly) that I was not going to need any incentive to be a blubbering idiot.

We picked Peter Gabriel's In Your Eyes.

It's funny that I found this post tonight... I'm desperately trying to find a first dance song for our wedding. If anyone else has any suggestions, I'll be stopping in to take a peek!

Yeah, those two songs sort of defined our "getting together" period.

I also have the Ben Folds hook-up:

Our song was "Feels So Right" by Alabama. It is a wonderful song, too bad it doesn't feel so right anymore!

We chose a song called "Sweet Avenue" by Jets To Brazil because it had special meaning to us. The lyrics fit us pretty well and DH used it at one point to woo me while we were dating. And it wasn't too fast - we're not very good dancers!

A song I doubt any other couple has ever chosen for their first dance. I let dh to be choose it, and when I heard it I just smiled, the words were perfect.

The song is Possession by Sarah McLachlan. I just love it.

Here is a link to the lyrics:http://www.lyrics007.com/Sarah%20McL...%20Lyrics.html

Ours will be "My Best Friend" by Tim McGraw. That song completely sums up what he means to me He always sings it back to me, so I think maybe he feels the same

Tanya, that would be one of my top choices as well! Such a perfect song. Too bad Bradley tunes out all of the sappy country ballads

"Forever" by Kiss

I'll be? I love that song

We haven't decided yet...but Jeff and I are both big Shania Twain fans..so maybe something by her.
post #22 of 26
Our song is "My Front Porch Looking In" by Lonestar. Not exactly a slow sappy ballard but it fits us. Not sure if we're going to dance to it, seeing as my mom already told me that a "country wedding" is not one she's willing to let me have.

Of course I just think that she's still mad about the polka band at her wedding.

Chris and I danced to "In Your Eyes" by Peter Gabriel. We picked it out the day of the wedding, we had such a hard time deciding. My father and I danced to a medly of "Somewhere over the Rainbow" and "What a wonderful World" sung by some famous Hawaiian singer.

Regarding the Sarah Machlachin Song "Possesion". I thought I read somewhere that song was inspired by love notes sent to her from her stalker?

Didn't know that so went to do some research. She was wrote the song from a male point of view, and did add in elements of two experiences of others building a fantasy relationship that didn't exist. All I can say is dh was never my stalker, and I love the intensity of the words, the beauty of the melody. For us, it is (obviously!!) a mutual attraction/desire to be together.

We're having trouble deciding too - just because we've went to like 6 weddings in the past year and they've all taken the good songs! So in the running is Paul McCartney's, Maybe I'm Amazed and Rascall Flatts, God Bless the Broken Road with Adam Sandler's, I Wanna Grow Old With You thrown in there for some fun.
