Wedding songs- first dance

My best friend is getting married and I'm trying to help long distance as much as possible.

She is looking for a first dance songs that aren't cliche or irritating.


Any suggestions?

oh, the song was "She always a woman"

I love that Billy Joel song, but listen to how it describes the woman, and you may see why she doesn't want it.

But everything I have to give I'll give to you
It's not like we planned it
You tried to stay, but you could not stand it
To see me shut down slow
as though it was an easy thing to do
Listen when
All of this around us'll fall over
I tell you what we're gonna do
You will shelter me my love
And I will shelter you


so awesome

I don't know if he picked it or if it was his wife who did though.

My husband and I danced to "Walkin' on Sunshine"

It was fun :-)

Last Dance would be an Ironic choice.

Some good options y'all.

Keep 'em comin'.

I walked down the Aisle to " I don't want to set the world on fire (I just want to start a flame in your Heart)" by the Ink spots. Our first dance was Blue Moon by the Cowboy Junkies, a really beautiful song.

I guess mine's going to be Louis Armstrong singing "A Kiss to Build a Dream On," since it's "our song."

It really is because he liked Fallout 2, so this video is entirely appropriate. The other ones on youtube were just too much for me.

I'd dance to Thirteen.

Also, I love that video. I love when Elliott talks to the audience.

And what's the difference?
