We can’t help it…we love it when our couples choose interesting songs for their first dance! We just recently published a few articles about picking wedding music and, more specifically, picking first dance songs. Lately, we’ve had a string of great choices of tracks for first dance songs from indie rock artists. Here are some of our favorites:
Ben Folds – The Luckiest. Possibly our favorite love song of all time. Can you blame us?
Death Cab For Cutie – I Will Follow You Into the Dark. Maybe a little dark for a wedding reception, but it’s a powerful & moving song.
Blind Pilot – 3 Rounds & A Sound. Another pretty 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. We’re 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, perfect for this couples first dance song selection.
Ellie Goulding – Your Song. A gorgeous new take on the Elton John classic.
