Dig by Incubus

Wonderwall by Oasis

All or Nothing by Theory of a Deadman

Everlong by Foo Fighters

I know these aren’t super-new songs, but I don’t think any of them are overdone.

I love Nickelback 🙂

Also try Lifehouse, they have some pretty good songs too.

I agree with Aerosmith, that song is very overly used.  We are still debating over ours hehe

We are using ‘If I ever leave this world alive’ by Flogging Molly.  Also U2 has an epic remake on ‘unchained melody’ that I highly recomend!

Again, not a newer song but we will be dancing to Just Like Heaven by The Cure 🙂 there are a few songs from The Cure that would be awesome to use.

@rosesarefree:  I agree with Everlong!

There is a beautiful acoustic version too that slows it down.

The First Day of Our Lives by Bright Eyes… we considered this one. We ended up deciding on The Way I Am by Ingrid Michaelson

@lunathea:  We’ve been trying to figure out a way to make Hard to Concentrate our first dance song for 2 years and it just feels awkward as a slow dance.  If you don’t mind me asking, how are you tying it into your ceremony?

@hardtoconcentrate:  We loved that song to,has been the closeest thing to “our song”, but couldn’t find out how to make it not awkward. So we used it for a cake cutting song.

This Magic Moment by Lou Reed.  It’s not new, admittedly, but it would be unique and is completely an amazeballs cover.

UGH NICKELBACK???? the bane of canadian “rock” music????

 

We’re doing “thousand mile wish” by finger eleven….beautiful song…look it up on youtube…the singer has always said he “can’t write a full blown love song” –so true….

also, I am walking down the aisle to “change the world” by them…an acoustic version….if you hear this version let me know and I can send you a link to it…..
