You would think that choosing a song for your first dance would be such an easy decision. I am sure for some people it is. Especially if you have a song as a couple (maybe Sir-Mix-A-lots – Baby got back is pushing it a bit far though!).
For my husband and I it was an agonising decision, neither of us are really dancers (well I can at least keep time but my husband has two left feet), or like being the centre of attention. So we decided on a song that everyone would get up and dance for. We chose 500 miles by the Proclaimers. The words are really appropriate for us so we went for it. It was a great success, our family and friends got up and danced, whilst we just stood there singing – a result for us!
Do you keep it safe with classic first dance song territory or impress the music snobs with something a little bit off-beat? Do you slow dance your way through a John Legend ballad or book in some first dance lessons so you can impress a faintly alarmed crowd of guests with a Dirty Dancing lift? Decisions, decisions…
I have put together a list of my top twenty first dance songs (in no particular order) – uncommon ones of course!
