Hey bees! FI and I are struggling over what song to use for our first dance. I focus more on lyrics, where he focuses more on the sound. I have a ton of ideas, but they are all songs sung by men, and FI likes the sound of a female’s voice for this particular event. Please help me with ideas for songs sung by ladies to use for a first dance! And no country, please 🙂 Thanks in advanced!

Ingrid Michaelson- Can’t Help Falling in Love
Adele- Make You Feel My Love
Both beautiful with great lyrics!

The Only Exception by Paramore has some pretty sweet lyrics. Also, it’s a country singer but not really a country song… Looking through Your Eyes from Quest for Camelot. Not sure if either are the sound you’re looking for but some suggestions!

- Wedding: June 2014 - Gold Hill Gardens
We used Norah Jones – Come Away with Me. I have loved that song and her voice for so long.

At Last – Etta James (or a cover) is a very classic choice
In My Life – Chantal Kreviazuk’s cover
I second Adele’s Make you feel my love.
I don’t really know what sound or style you’re looking for though

We used “A Thousand Years” by Christina Perri.

FI is stuck on Lana del Rey. He likes Video Games and Young & Beautiful. I think they both have a sad tone, and the lyrics dont fit.
I like Have a little Faith in Me, Brighter than Sunshine (Aqualung).
We’ll have been together for 10 years come November- and i feel like we need a song that kinda gives a shout out to being together since we were young. I found the perfect song lyric wise, but hes not into it- Yes to Love by Stefano (from american idol) AWESOME song bees!
I feel like our only compromise will be the Candlelight DJ Sammy version of Heaven. The lyrics are there, and its sung by a girl. I used to joke we would dance to the techno version lol!
Thanks for all of your suggestions- i like the idea of the Paramore song, and in fact the video is quite accurate (we dated for a month when we first met, i broke it off, 3 months later we got back together & have been together ever since) but the lyrics just arent right for me. Ah idk. We have time, just trying to get things figured out so I dont have to worry anymore lol!

plum_pudding: Speaking of Chantal Kreviazuk, I love her song “Feels Like Home.” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t-ouxPhYy7Y
theEguarantee: I agree that Video Games and Young & Beautiful don’t fit at all for a first dance song. However, if your FI likes Lana del Rey, he might also like Nancy Sinatra. I don’t know any super romantic songs by her off the top of my head, but “You Only Live Twice” could maybe be kind of romantic. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XgFtQPgHyek
