However, I'm not gonna lie, the search for the perfect first dance song was both entertaining and enlightening. When I googled 'first dance songs', I was treated by such delights as 'All my Life' by Kci and Jojo (brilliant song when I was 15 and at a school dance, but not so much at 28 and having my first dance as a married woman), and 'Endless Love' by Diana Ross and Lionel Ritchie. Don't get me wrong, I'm definitely not adverse to a bit of cheese, and in fact, I kind of love it, but I have to say, I think I could do better than 'Amazed' by Lone Star...
Sooooo, here are my top ten favourite first dance songs. Feel free to disagree, poke fun at my taste, agree or add some of your own.
5)I'll apologise now, yes, Shania Twain is making it in at number 5. However, it's not 'From this Moment', or 'You're Still the One', it's 'When You Kiss Me'. I love it. Like allot.
6)A bit of Jack Johnson always makes me that little bit happier. There's something about 'Banana Pancakes' that makes we wish my wedding was on a beach in Hawaii. If it was, I'd without a doubt have this as my first dance.
7)Who doesn't love a bit of Al Green? Ever since I heard 'Love is a Beautiful Thing' in Legally Blond, it's been one of my favourite pick me up songs. Love the lyrics, love the soulfull Al Green and love how you can't help but smile listening to this song.
8)'This Will Be (an Everlasting Love)' by Natalie Cole makes it in at number 8. It's a bit up tempo for a first dance song, but I think that's why I like it. See what I mean about liking cheese?
9)Another country favourite, number nine is 'Somebody to Love' by Keith Urban. You can't fail with country songs when it comes to a bit of lovely cheese.
10)Last but not least, if you googled first dance songs, this would probably come up in numerous lists, but I still love it. Edwin McCain's 'I'll Be'.
