One of the best songs ever, IMO: Rolling Stones, Wild Horses. Just Beautiful!

What about Rise Against – Swing Life Away? I REALLY considered that one for awhile.

I’m considering “Everlong” by the Foo Fighters, but I’m not sure how danceable it is.

I was considering “Everything” by Lifehouse. Its not really rock, but its alt. The lyrics are really, really beauitful. I hope that helps!

Our first dance song was “Never Tear Us Apart” by INXS, though I walked down the aisle to “All I Want Is You” by U2 which I think could also work as a first dance song.

This might be too lyrical, not enough rock, but I just heard “Marry Me” by Train on the radio, and it is just beautiful and so appropriate for a first dance. I was going to bring it up with my Fiance since we don’t have a song either.
