Melody For Two

Unconventional first dance songs

Having witnessed my fair share of first dances, it's safe to say that the first songs that come to mind for most couples are the ones played time after time. So for those who have yet to settle on a melody for their mister and mrs. dance, why not stray from clichés and go for something a little more unconventional. With countless new and noteworthy artists at your disposal, you need not look only to the classics for lyrical inspiration. (Though an unexpected classic can be equally perfect for the occasion as well). First you'll want to decide on a melody mood–what type of dancing do you plan to do? Next you'll want to think about the message. What song best conveys the bond you share through its lyrics. I've put together a selection of options with a variety of cadences, all boasting beautifully strung together words for your choosing.

Take a listen here: one; two; three; four; five; six; seven; eight; nine; ten
