I have always enjoyed the romantic song ‘At Last‘ made famous originally by American blues singer Etta James and I was saddened to read that she passed away last week. This song has often been played for a couples’ first dance at weddings and once you listen to the words you will know why.
The choice of song for that special moment when you step onto the dance floor for the first time as husband and wife, is of course a very personal one, but at Celebration House we often get asked for ideas on this subject and just for fun, instead of picking popular songs, we have composed a list of classic numbers that we think have withstood the test of time.
At Last – Beyonce
I don’t want to miss a thing – Aerosmith
Truly, madly deeply – Savage Garden
I’ve got you under my skin – Frank Sinatra and Bono
When you say nothing at all – Ronan Keating
Tonight I celebrate my love – Roberta Flack & Peabo Bryson
You’re my first, my last, my everything – Barry White
My baby just cares for me – Nina Simone
Unforgettable – Nat King Cole
The way you look tonight – Michael Bublé
Have I told you lately – Van Morrison
True Love – Elton John & Kiki Dee
Up where we belong – Joe Cocker & Jennifer Warnes
We’d love to hear what song you have chosen for your first dance.
