We can’t help it.  We love it when our couples choose interesting songs for their first dance.   Lately we’ve had a string of great choices of tracks from indie rock artists; and here’s some of our favorites:

Ben Folds – The Luckiest.  Possibly my favorite love song of all time.

Death Cab For Cutie – I Will Follow You Into the Dark.   Might be a little dark for a wedding reception, but it’s a powerful & moving song.

Blind Pilot – 3 Rounds & A Sound.  Another heavy tune, but beautiful lyrics.

Band of Horses – No One’s Going to Love You.  The title says it all: ‘No one’s going to love you like I do.”  And if you like your music on the R&B side of things, Cee-Lo Green does an amazing cover on this song.

Gorillaz – On Melancholy Hill.   I’m guessing this band/song has special meaning to this couple as it doesn’t really feel like a track for a wedding, nonetheless a great love song.

Owl City – If My Heart Was a House.   “You’d be home.”  This indie-electro band that gave us “Fireflies” also has this pretty little number.

Ellie Goulding – Your Song.  A beautiful new take on the Elton John classic.

Mike Doughty – More Bacon Than the Pan Can Handle.  I’ll be honest- I have no idea why they picked this one for their first song- do you?
