Last weekend, a buddy of mine got married. It was a very nice and fun wedding, and went off (from my eyes) without a hitch. I didn't know which song he had chosen for the first dance, but once it came on, I knew the rest of the playlist would be good:
My first thought was "That's something I'd pick for the first dance at my wedding." Not that I'm in the planning stage or anything right now, but I have begun making a list of potential songs for whenever that occasion presents itself.
I don't have a top choice quite yet, but one song that I've liked since I first heard it (on a train to New York in the spring of my junior year of college) is "I Will Follow You into the Dark" by Death Cab for Cutie. It's a nice little song, but it's kinda dark and not good for dancing. Still, it's good:
Another good one is "Wonderful Tonight" by Eric Clapton:
