The first dance. A booking agent at Rush says it’s all about choosing the perfect song that best represents you as a couple. It might seem like an easy task on your wedding to-do list, but once you realise how many great songs are out there, it can be quite a difficult decision. Whether you’re planning on dancing a classical waltz or a choreographed routine, we asked a Rush booking agent for song recommendations to make your first dance memorable.
“Perfect” by Ed Sheeran
Could this be the perfect first-dance song for you? Ed Sheeran is renowned for writing some of the most romantic songs in the 21st century. For a contemporary version of the waltz, a Rush booking agent says you cannot go wrong with this song.
“All of Me” by John Legend
Did you know that the music video was actually shot just days before John Legend’s own wedding to Chrissy Teigen? A very fitting choice for your first dance.
“Everything” by Michael Buble
There’s more to Michael Bublé than his Christmas songs. This song is quite different from his usual repertoire of jazz standards, but with those lyrics, it is easy to see why it is a popular choice.
“Can’t Help Falling in Love” by Elvis Presley
An absolute classic thanks to the King of Rock’n’Roll, and possibly, one of the most romantic songs of all time. If you are after a more vintage feel to your first dance, then you can’t go wrong with this song.
“Crazy In Love” by Beyonce
It’s no wedding without a bit of Beyonce, but have you thought about this song for your first dance? A booking agent at Rush might suggest this song for a flash mob routine with your bridal party.
“Make You Feel My Love” by Adele
This song was originally written and sung by Bob Dylan but was more recently made famous by Adele. It’s soulful and romantic, and our booking agent at Rush says you cannot go wrong with Adele’s rendition.
“The Way You Look Tonight” by Frank Sinatra
The original performer of this song was Fred Astaire, and it even won an Academy Award for Best Original Song in 1936. Frank Sinatra, one of the many artists who has covered the song, is a legend in the music industry, so it’s no surprise that our booking agent recommends it.
“Happy” by Pharrell Williams
For those who are not interested in slowly waltzing around the dance floor, a Rush booking agent might recommend this upbeat tune. If you’re up for the challenge, you could even try choreographing a routine.
“Marry You” by Bruno Mars
An appropriately titled song for your first-dance! Bruno Mars has produced some great hits over the last few years, and this song is definitely one of them.
