There has been some fantastic music in the charts over the past year. I’m sure plenty of you out there are throwing around ideas for your first dance, and although a classic ‘golden oldie’ is always nice, I think it’s a lovely idea to choose a modern song. Perhaps something that reminds you of the proposal, or that signifies important events that happened last year.
Choosing a first dance song is such a personal task, but I think there are a few songs that will come up over and over again in 2012. So, drum roll please… here’s my predictions for 2012’s top 10 first dance songs…
1. Marry You – Bruno Mars
What could be more lyrically perfect?
2. Lego House – Ed Sheeran
We love Ed, and this is a beautiful song.
3. Lovesong – Adele
A lesser known track by Adele, but this cover of The Cure’s song is just gorgeous!
4. Just the Way You Are – Bruno Mars
That Bruno’s a smoothie, isn’t he?
5. You Got the Love – Florence and the Machine
This was very popular in 2011 and I’m sure will be in 2012 too.
6. Love on Top – Beyonce
A great tune if you want to create a fun party vibe.
7. Wherever You Will Go – Charlene Soraia
Just beautiful – guaranteed to bring a tear to your Granny’s eye!
8. Dance with Me Tonight – Olly Murs
A bit of cheeky chappy Ollie to get the crowd going.
9. I Won’t Let You Go – James Morrison
Such a soulful voice, and a beautiful song to go with it.
10. Nothing’s Real but Love – Rebecca Ferguson
What a gorgeous track this is, and perfect for a first dance.
