Getting Married This Spring? Here Are Some Top Wedding Songs

Click here for a few more conservative choices in music.About this time every year, I start getting emails from brides and grooms asking “What songs should we use for our wedding?”  

This list was generated by Spotify after looking at the wedding playlists of 78,000 UK subscribers.

I can’t say that I endorse many of the songs on this list (“White Wedding?”  It’s a song about heroin addiction, people!), but at least it’ll give couples an idea of what everyone else is using.

1 The Black Eyed Peas – I Gotta Feeling

2 Kings of Leon – Sex On Fire

3 The Killers – Mr Brightside

4 Stevie Wonder – Superstition

5 Abba – Dancing Queen

6 Journey – Don’t Stop Believin’

7 Beyoncé – Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It)

8 Billy Idol – White Wedding

9 OutKast – Hey Ya! – Radio Mix/Club Mix

10 Adele – Make You Feel My Love

11 Jason Mraz – I’m Yours

12 Stevie Wonder – Signed, Sealed, Delivered (I’m Yours)

13 Jackson 5 – Blame It On The Boogie

14 Beyoncé – Crazy In Love feat. Jay-Z

15 Al Green – Let’s Stay Together

16 Take That – Greatest Day

17 The Proclaimers – I’m Gonna Be (500 Miles)

18 Barry White – You’re The First, The Last, My Everything

    Mr Brightside? Strikes me as a bit of an odd choice.

    I guess using Peter Gabriel's version of "Book of Love" for our wedding is boring in comparison, but I'm okay with that!
