Getting married next year and the biggest concern I have after a discussion over a few pints the other night is "What song will we have for the first dance?". This is a problem. We do not want anything cheesy, but even "You And Me Song" by the Wannadies is cliche. Anyone any ideas or used a song that I can shamelessy steal?

I'm always pushing the same couple of artists on people, I know, but there's a song called "The Luckiest" on Ben Folds' solo album that's probably the most beautiful love song I've ever heard and it manages to steer clear of most cliches. It's worth checking out. And congrats, btw.

A friend of mine wanted desperately to have "Lovesong" by the Cure be the first dance song, but decided to go with Van Morrison's "Have I Told You Lately" for the good of the older guests.

Personally, I want one of the following one day:
"1000 Oceans" - Tori Amos
"Wildflowers" - Tom Petty
"Fall At Your Feet" - Crowded House

Hey spf, great call on the Crowded House tune, it's like my favorite love song ever.
I wish I had an actual suggestion, but instead I offer a cautionary tale of which song NOT to use.
I was roped into going to a wedding with a friend from work who needed a date for her cousin's wedding. The song chosen for the happy couple's first dance was...
"All by Myself," oh, and to make it worse, it was the Celine Dion version. The marriage lasted 4 months IIRC.
So, don't use that song.

Lizzie West- "Chariots Rise".

I like it too much to be able to determine the cheese factor.

"The Luckiest" always gets me. Just an absolutely beautiful song. And since I am a Dad "Stil Fighting It" by Ben Folds gets me too. Ben rules.



WIENER OF THE DAY! July 6, 2002!

If I lived back in the wild west days, instead of carrying a six-gun in my holster, I'd carry a soldering iron. That way, if some smart-aleck cowboy said something like "Hey, look. He's carrying a soldering iron!" and started laughing, and everybody else started laughing, I could just say, "That's right, it's a soldering iron. The soldering iron of justice." Then everybody would get real quiet and ashamed, because they had made fun of the soldering iron of justice, and I could probably hit them up for a free drink.

We used "Love Shack." But them again, we has the absolute gayest wedding between a man and a woman ever. I mean that in a good way, for those of you who don't read the Politics forum.

Bitter Peace by Slayer.

Heh, no, seriously. My sister used Shania Twain's "From This Moment". A fitting song, if you ask me.

Just play the cheese factor up and use the Kenny Rogers version. He has a whole CD of love song covers. I still remember the commercials that would air late nights on Game Show Network a few years back.

You could go with Bryan Adams, but I understand the cheese factor of that song for a wedding.

Last year, two friends of mine used "Amazed" by Lonestar, and it was perfect (for them anyways).

I've always thought "Harvest Moon" by Neil Young would make a great wedding song, or, of course, one that gets me every time, "Your Song," by Elton John.

For what it's worth, the piewife and I used "When I Look In Your Eyes" by Firehouse. It's a little on the cheesy side (I like cheese), but we're through 8 years so far on that song.

Since it's use by John Cusak in "Say Anything," Peter Gabriel's "In your Eyes" has a nice manly quality to it. Also good is Sarah McLachlan's "Ice Cream," which is done in 3/4 time (a waltz) making it VERY easy to dance to.

Normally I'd recommend a couple of U2 songs here, but while U2 has tons of pretty songs, their lyrics are all somewhat messed up and obsessive. One, All I Want Is You, With or Without You, Stay, etc.

I heartily second the selection of Your Song.
