First Dance Fridays | Recent Hits

Happy Friday everyone! And happy summer!! For today’s edition of first dance Fridays, I thought I would pull from some recent songs that people have loved. As usual, the links will take you to the video on You Tube in case you want to give it a listen.

1) Marry Me – Train

This has been extremely popular since it came out for engagement and wedding videos, proposals, and weddings alike. So if you are not the trendy type and want every aspect of your wedding to be extremely unique, this may not be the song for you. BUT if that doesn’t bother you, this song is very sweet and romantic and a fantastic choice.

Forever can never be long enough for me
To feel like I’ve had long enough with you
Forget the world now we won’t let them see
But there’s one thing left to do

Now that the weight has lifted
Love has surely shifted my way
Marry Me
Today and every day
Marry Me
If I ever get the nerve to say hello in this cafe
Say you will

2) A Thousand Years – Christina Perry

This song was on the Twilight: Breaking Dawn soundtrack, so if that bothers you, go ahead and move on to the next. But it’s a super pretty tune, with it’s minor key and it’s acoustic feel, and background strings. I don’t know about you, but it makes me want to dance with someone. The lyrics are pretty stinkin’ romantic too.

I have died everyday waiting for you
Darling don’t be afraid I have loved you
For a thousand years
I’ll love you for a thousand more

And all along I believed I would find you
Time has brought your heart to me
I have loved you for a thousand years
I’ll love you for a thousand more

3) Rhythm Of Love – Plain White T’s

This song is a little more upbeat, a little more cheerful, and still lovely and sweet. It’s a cute one guys. I’m a fan.

We may only have tonight
But till the morning sun, you’re mine
All mine
Play the music low
And sway to the rhythm of love

When the moon is low
We can dance in slow motion
And all your tears will subside
All your tears will dry

4) Flightless Bird, American Mouth – Iron & Wine

Sorry that two on the list are from the Breaking Dawn. They used great music, what can I say? Iron & Wine is one of my favorite bands. This song in particular isn’t actually their most romantic lyrically, because the lyrics are actually a little strange and confusing. But the tune is so haunting and lovely. (If you’re hung up on the lyrics, check out Love & Some Verses.)

Then when the cops closed the fair
I cut my long baby hair
Stole me a dog-eared map
And called for you everywhere

Have I found you?
Flightless bird, jealous, weeping
Or lost you?
American mouth
Big pill looming

5) You Are The Best Thing – Ray LaMontagne

This one is a bit more upbeat again, it’s a happy song for sure. The lyrics are very wedding appropriate and sweet. It’s groovy.

We’ve come a long way
And baby
You know i hope and i pray
That you believe me
When i say this love will never fade away

Oh, because
You are the best thing
You are the best thing
You are the best thing
Ever happened to me

Have a wonderful weekend friends!

I did a wedding highlight to Ray LaMontagne “You Are the Best Thing” and I never get tired of that song. Also “Marry Me”….stunning. I don’t think any of these songs would disappoint. You have such good taste :)

Awesome choices! “Marry Me” and “Rhythm of Love” are definitely my favorites :)
