Our Top 5 Song Picks for First Dances
Picking the perfect song for your first dance is no easy task. While many couples want their first dance to be memorable, it can be a real struggle to find a unique song that sets them apart from the masses. The guys from The Hitmen Trio have come up with some brilliant suggestions for quirky song selections to help you glide onto the dance floor to a tune that represents who you are as a couple and that hasn’t been played a million times before….
1. You got it - Roy Orbsion
'Anything you want, You got it...' when one couple have found love, they have ‘got it' in abundance. We played this in June in mount Druid outside, and it was beautiful. The guests just love to along sing the refrain!
2. Fleetwood Mac - Everywhere
What a great band and a great song! We have noticed this song is definitely having a resurgence at weddings—having it as a first dance is a nice touch. Everywhere is a sure favourite during the DJ set too!
3. Queens of the stone age - I wanna make it wit chu
For a fairly raunchy groovy choice of first dance, this ticks all the boxes and gets the crowd into the party atmosphere straight away. The chorus is infectious and it’s a definite statement song, and real departure from the traditional waltz!
4. Talking heads - This must be place
A wonderful tune and groove from a fantastic band, whose Arthouse music really stands the test of time. This song is gentle and groovy enough for a first dance. We recall playing it for a boutique wedding couple in Fallon & Byrne, Dublin and we are itching to play it again!
5. Thinking out Loud In Irish (as Gaeilge)
Here's a recent one! We were delighted to perform this song for a couple in Kippure Estate who love 'a cúpla focal' and speak 'as Gaeilge' as much as they can and wanted to reflect that in their first dance. What a great idea!
