I remember what my brother’s first dance song was because it was very apropos, but I have NO clue what any other person whose wedding i’ve been used for their first dance song 🙂 I feel like this is something you’re not really expected to keep track of/care about.

No, but I went to about a zillion different weddings where the first dance song was Brad Paisley’s, “She’s Everything”. Like you said, it’s a song. They don’t own it, and they’re certainly not the only ones to have used it. As long as you make sure your friend is okay with it first, I think it would be fine.

I think we are going to use the song that was the first dance song for my FI’s friends wedding about 3 years ago. “When You Come Back Down” by Nickel Creek. Nickel Creek is one of the first things that my Fiance and I bonded over, just a month into dating. They don’t have a lot of “first dance” worthy songs though, so it’s pretty limited what we would choose. I’m still listening to various songs from them, maybe finding something else. But if I don’t, I’ll probably go with that. Any other song would just feel really forced, like we just had to “pick” something. I think it’s better to go with something that has meaning for you, than something “popular” that is just a song.
