If it makes you feel better, we didn’t have a song together either (after 6 years together). For the wedding, I just decided to dance to something easy going and enjoyable, so we did Jack Johnson’s “Better Together”. It didn’t have any special meaning for us other than the lyrics were nice and it was a nice song. My fiance didn’t really care what song I picked. So if he is less into music or really just doesn’t care, I would just pick something you like, and then go with it!

Personally, I think Alicia Keys is brilliant 🙂

We have been together for just over 10 years, so it was kind of hard for us to pick too. We ended up picking:

This I Promise You – Ronan Keating – First Dance – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6-2Qc_tSNNM&feature=related

It made us both cry, so it is the one we are going with. You should pick a song that you both like/love. It doesn’t matter about being overdone or not.

We’re doing two first dance songs (“Easy Living” by Billie Holiday and “Blue Moon” by old Frankie), but they don’t have any special meaning for us as a couple–the lyrics just speak to how we feel about each other. I think that’s the important thing when choosing a song.

I agree with noritake22 – it doesn’t matter if it’s “overdone.” If you love it, use it.

@marlew: Over done or not, the classic is the way I would go. However I would use Etta James orginal version.  Pick the one that you want, that is more meaningful to you. 

Or song is “Hold On” by Michael Buble.  The lyrics have special meaning to us and it is the only song that made him emtional when listening to it out of the choices that I presented.

Good luck!
