Choosing a first dance wedding song can be tricky. You can probably cross off Meatloaf’s Bat Out of Hell, but you’re still no closer. Well pop-pickers, welcome to your wedding songs Top Ten chart countdown to help you find that first dance wedding song without tripping over your own feet. Here’s our Top Ten:
New at 10 is Adelle with Make You Feel My Love. She’s everyone’s favourite British singing sensation and this song has the heartfelt romance you need to get all the guests wiping their eyes while you slow step with your dear beloved.
A non-mover at 9 it’s I’ve Had the Time of My Life by Bill Medley and Jennifer Warnes. Anyone who grew up in the 80s will know this as the song from the end of Dirty Dancing, but don’t put your back out trying to emulate the Swayze lift move.
In at 8 it’s the Walrus of Love, Barry White, with You’re the First, the Last, My Everything. . He sounds like he eats gravel but he sings lurve like he means it.
Down two places but still upbeat and cheery, Nina Simone’s My Baby Just Cares For Me is number 5.
Is that Austin Powers at a piano? No, it’s the man who made wigs cool again, Elton John, and he’s singing Your Song. I wrote it for you. Well, Elton wrote it for someone who was you but not you, exactly. Confusing, but the song’s sentiment is clear enough and perfect for your wedding dance.
Up one place at 5 is the original bad girl diva Etta James with At Last. Soul and love, love and soul, either way round Etta James is one of the best. Slow, soulful and with lyrics that might have been written with a wedding dance in mind.
With a voice that was made to sing love songs, Al Green’s at 4 with Let’s Stay Together.
Greatest Day by Take That is this week’s number 3. An inspirational song from the undisputed heavyweights of the boy bands (and that’s just counting Barlow), show your guests your glorious love to the tune of Take That - and no closing your eyes and imagining you’re dancing with Robbie.
Another Dirty Dancing classic, The Ronettes and Be My Baby at number 2. What was it about that film? The Swayze, the dancing, the music - it had it all. This is one of our favourites and the perfect wedding song, pick this and help The Ronnettes climb the charts.
And at Number 1 in our Top Ten wedding songs. . .
Beautiful, super cool and top of the charts, The Shirelles and Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow? So tell me now and I won’t ask again, will you still love me tomorrow? Well, will you, eh?
Whether it’s a slow one or a lively one, find a song that reflects how you feel and that you can both enjoy dancing to. We know picking a wedding song is a tougher decision than you’d first think, so we hope our Top Ten chart countdown has helped give you some ideas.
