My Fi and I are struggling to pick out a first dance song. We need to let the band know within the next two days and right now we’ve got nothing.
He originally wanted Faithfully, by Journey (which I said I didn’t like) and I wanted Good Life by One republic. (which he said we could use as a back up).
We’d definitely like a song that talks about love and traveling–preferably traveling together, but will settle for some travel references.
So, any ideas?

The first one that pops into my head is Transatlanticism by Death Cab for Cutie, but it does have sad tones, and is a bit slow. The build up is wonderful though, and when the refrain hits… *sigh*
I’ll try to think of more though!

Are you looking for uptempo or slower?

@mightywombat: Probably something we could easily dance to, especially as we’ll probably do the seventh grade shuffle 😉
But we’re pretty willing to look at anything right now 😉
Thanks to anyone who’s suggested anything else so far. I’m checking them out.

More upbeat: Proclaimers, 500 Miles – I LOVE this song.
I Love Paris – Ella Fitzgerald
April in Paris- Ella Fitzgerald
Mixed tempo: Brazil – Pink Martini – this one might be a little more challenging to dance to

“Leaving on a Jet Plane” by Bob Denver or other remakes comes to mind immediately, but it’s sort of melancholy.

Well these are two songs about traveling, but not together :/ But both beautiful lyrics!
Michael Buble “Home” and Robert Earl Keen “I’m coming home to you” – when husband is away on business trips, he will usually send me a text with a lyric from one of these songs.

My go-to travel song is an Irish folk song called “Rambling Rover”. It’s not very weddingy but it’s a great song .

dave matthews you & me could work…
Wanna pack your bags, Something small
Take what you need and we disappear
Without a trace we’ll be gone, gone
The moon and the stars can follow the car
and then when we get to the ocean
We gonna take a boat to the end of the world
All the way to the end of the world
Oh, and when the kids are old enough
We’re gonna teach them to fly
You and me together, we could do anything, Baby
You and me together yes, yes [x2]
I know of two couples that used this song, it was very nice as a first dance song!
