@taylor15220:  We danced to the “regular” version of Forever Young – it was fantastic. We did a mix of slow-dancing and some faster swing/blues steps. And NONE of the lyrics are creepy. 🙂 It was a perfect song – loved it, would choose it again. Just fast enough and rock-y enough to be non-traditional or sappy, but still full of feeling.

@Minnow:  My fiance loves the fast version but I’m a terrible dancer so the slow version seems easier to dance to hahaha. I’m glad somebody else used it! Makes me feel not off base with my choice.

@taylor15220:  I’m sure either version would be lovely! Just remember if you do wind up choosing the faster version, you can always half-time the steps (instead of taking one step for every beat, you can take a step every other beat.) That’s pretty much what we did – do a few fast steps or a spin or two to the beat, and then dance closer and slow in half-time. You can slow down any song 🙂

@hayleyelizabeth:  I don’t know how unique it is, but we danced to “Daughter” by Loudon Wainwright. It definitely suited us 🙂 You should check out Vitamin Stting quartet too if you are looking for slower songs. The quartet does rendition of all the best Classic Rock songs.

I have had the exact same issue as you. Crazy Love by Bob Dylan and Van Morrison was our winner. Its a beautiful song!

I used the slow version of Forever Young, covered by audra mae. That song makes me cry whenever I hear it!

My Dad and I danced to “Sweet Pea” by Amos Lee. My dad is a musician and he loved it too!

We danced to Daddy’s Little Girl….which I’m sure is done like at a million weddings.  I decided to let my dad pick the song and have him surprise me with his choice.  I had a feeling it would be this song since he used to sing it to me almost every night as I went to bed as a little kid.   However he had put an awesome spin to it.   He had a family friend play it accoustically on the guitar and had the family friend even write an extra verse into the song that pertained to only us and things from my childhood.  It was one of the more special and amazing moments from my wedding
