Choosing a first dance song isn’t easy for some. In fact it can be really stressful.  Some couples have a song that they love or lyrics that just make them think of their partner.  Others get inspired by a romantic hit song that’s popular while they are doing their planning. For others, it’s not quite that simple. They have a few songs they like a lot, but they can’t quite pinpoint one they want for a moment like this. 

Timeless classics are a good place to start if you’re stumped. And there are lots of them that are perfect first dance material – from the lyrics and the melody to the nice relaxed tempo; they’re made for this romantic style of dance. Singers like Al Green, Etta James and Frank Sinatra are all great contenders. And let’s not forget current classic first dance songs from Ed Sheeran, Christina Perri and others. Your first dance doesn’t even have to be a slow song. Many couples are opting for upbeat songs or even mashups. Here are the top 15 first dance songs as recorded by Spotify for couples in 2019.
