101 First Dance Songs

The following is a true story....

The year is 1972, and Jay and Sue's wedding is days away.  They meet with their bandleader (yes, they hired a band; that's just what people did back then) to review the final details for their reception and reveal their special request for their first dance:  The Doors "Come On Baby Light My Fire."  It is the one song, they explain, that truly captures their essence, and they can't imagine a better or more fun piece to which to dance for the first time as husband and wife.  The bandleader agrees that they have chosen quite a unique song, but proceeds to inform them that, unfortunately, the band "doesn't know how to play that one." HOWEVER, he suggests, why not dance to something *almost* as good, that the band CAN play?

And, so, my parents ended up commemorating their first dance with The Carpenter's "We've Only Just Begun."


By Bryan Flounder Schlossberg 

  

The first dance is one of the most important parts of the wedding reception.  Generally occurring immediately after your introduction into the ballroom as a married couple, it is one of the few moments of the evening that garners the attention of all of your guests, and shares with them an intimate and personal aspect of your relationship.

Because of the sentimental nature of this dance, a lot of couples are intimidated by the prospect of choosing the perfect song for them; either because the tune they consider to be their "Song" isn't appropriate for a first dance, or because they realize they've never had a "Song" and want to select something worthy of representing their distinct relationship.  For those couples, I have compiled a list of 100 First Dance songs, plus a bonus.  These songs are great-sounding, ideal for weddings, and meaningful.  Regardless of the song, though, please be considerate of your guests and request that your DJ edit down the song to two or three minutes in length.  A true professional will easily be able to accommodate your request at no additional charge.

I hope that this list inspires you.  Please share, and don't forget to comment below!

1960's

We start our list in the 1960's.  This decade features eleven classic love songs that are perfect for a first dance.  It features "At Last," which I've heard a bajillion times (and I'm sure you have, too), but still makes people cry.  Brian Wilson's masterpiece "God Only Knows" is also included.  I have chronicled alternate versions of songs in parentheses.  Be sure to check out Ingrid Michaelson's cover of Elvis' "Can't Help Falling In Love." Also listed: songs by The Beatles, Frank Sinatra, Sonny & Cher, and more. 

Etta James -  At Last - 1960 (Beyonce)

Ben E. King - Stand By Me - 1961

1970's

This decade showcases eight solid selections.  The Elton John video featured below has been viewed over 40 million times, and is considered one of the greatest love songs of all time.  Stevie Wonder's "You Are The Sunshine Of My Life" is also listed.  Fun fact:  Wonder did not sing the first four lines of the song; the first two are sung by Jim Gilstrap, with Lani Groves singing the following two.  Also on this list: Joe Cocker, Bob Marley, The Jackson 5 and more.

It wasn't all synthesizers and drum machines in the 80's. This decade features 18 song selections.  I've included "Earth Angel" in this category which was originally done by The Penguins in 1954.  Earth Angel was covered by "Marvin Barry & The Starlighters" for Back To The Future. Other acts that made the list are Journey, Madonna, Cyndi Lauper, blind musician Jeff Healey, The Honeydrippers (Robert Plant from Led Zeppelin) and the theme song to one of the greatest love stories, "When Harry Met Sally."

Yes I still DJ weddings...and then some

I've received a lot of e-mails since my announcement asking if I still do private events.  Of course I do!  I've been dj'ing them since I was 13 and still love performing at them.  If I'm not spinning on DC's 107.3 on on the road you can catch me spinning at a wedding, or a corporate party or even a Bar Mitzvah.  Take a look at my company FM Entertainment and get in touch with me if you have any questions...we'd love to be at your next party!

The Last Three Years

Today marks three years since I was fired from DC101 and Elliot in the Morning. As difficult as it was at the time, it has turned out to be one of the best things in my life. In these three years, I started my own business, DJ'd around the country for Jeep, met a ton of amazing people, learned a hell of a lot and have been hired by a radio station I grew up idolizing. I've learned that when life knocks you down; take a deep breath, lick your wounds, get up and KICK ASS! Thank you for all of the support over the years! I write this from Las Vegas as I open for Neon Trees tonight!

DJ Flounder Update and New Job

dcs-1073.jpg

With the launch of my new website, here is a DJ Flounder update.  A lot of people know me from DC101, Elliot in the Morning and Flounder's Mash Ups; that ended three years ago this Thursday. (more on that later) Since then, you may have seen me spinning at a club, a Bar Mitzvah or for Jeep in a city somewhere around the country.  And now a huge announcement...I'm headed back to radio!

I'm now the imaging director (producing audio and video for the station) and DJ on DC's 1073.  You can hear my first Throwback Thursday mix this Thursday on the Sarah, Ty and Mel show.  Being from the DC area, I grew up worshiping WRQX (Q107) and now it blows my mind that I'm actually working there.

Three years ago I got fired from DC101, that moment changed my life forever.  This Thursday I also debut my mixes on DC's 1073 and head to Vegas to open for the Neon Trees.  A special thank you to Denise and Julianna for all of their hard work at FM Entertainment.  I started FM Entertainment with nothing and worked my butt off.  It's really exciting to watching the company continue to grow and spread happiness around.
