Time for another ten wedding songs in our rundown of the Top 100 Wedding Songs – counting down the ultimate playlist for the Big Day from the ceremony to the reception. Just like our other installments, this one is a mix of genres from all eras and we hope it includes something for everyone.
69. Elvis Presley – Can’t Help Falling in Love
This absolute classic from The King himself must be a popular choice of first dance – and it’s not difficult to see why.
68. Norah Jones – Come Away with Me
It’s amazing to think Norah Jones’ debut album came out as long ago as 2002, but the fabulous ‘Come Away with Me’ has endured as a classic ballad. This is a fantastic slow-dance that will have all the couples swaying to the beat at your reception.
67. Temper Trap – Sweet Disposition
A good choice to balance out the inevitable cheesy wedding songs, this tune from Temper Trap brings you bang up-to-date. Its inclusion on a number of rom-com soundtracks has secured its place as one of the big love songs of this generation.
66. Ray LaMontagne – You are The Best Thing
There are so many comments underneath the video for this song on YouTube saying ‘This is our first dance song!’ that I just had to include it in this list. Soulful and with a great beat – this is the perfect choice for the happy couple’s first dance.
65. The O’Jays – Love Train
Alright it’s time for a little bit of cheese in this playlist – and while the O’Jays’ ‘Love Train’ might be an oldie, it’s still a goodie. You can be sure everyone will recognise this upbeat dance track, and no-one will be able to resist busting out their best moves.
64. Billie Holiday – What a Little Moonlight Can Do
Now this one might have been recorded as long ago as 1935, but for those looking for something a little different you can’t beat a little bit of Billie Holiday. This is about as happy a song as you can find, and throwing your partner around the dance floor to the sound of a jazz orchestra is sure to be loads of fun!
63. Noah & The Whale – Five Years Time
This is a lovely little love song from Noah & The Whale, and who can resist a ukulele?!
62. Take That – Could it be Magic
This is a must-have at any wedding, but brides who remember crying when Robbie left the band will have a special place in their heart for this little slice of early Take That from 1992.
61. The Tams – Be Young, Be Foolish, Be Happy
This one pretty much speaks for itself! Cheerful, uplifting, great beat – wedding guests of all ages will love dancing to this classic soul track.
60. The Cure – Friday I’m in Love
Thankfully The Cure’s punk credentials keep this classic from being considered too cheesy. Long-time Cure fans might wrinkle their noses, but I love ‘Friday I’m in Love’ – and you can be sure the majority of your guests will know all the words!
