As a pianist/vocalist, I advertise, of course, for gigs such as weddings, funerals, etc., often receiving calls from prospective clients searching for an excellent musician. However, finding the perfect song selections that give just the right amount of romance and cheer can be difficult. Therefore, I have compiled this list of songs that will make any wedding magical.
1. "You Put Me Here" by Johnny Cash
The idea of walking to the gallows because of a woman is a feeling all grooms should be able to relate to with ease, making it the perfect first selection!
2. "Wake Me Up" by Avicii
"Wake me up when it's all over..."
3. "Be Prepared" from The Lion King
Serving as an excellent friendly reminder/threat of what marriage can be like, this song kindly asks both the bride and the groom to prepare themselves in that romantically ominous way.
4. "You Ain't Nothing But A Hound Dog" by Elvis Presley
No other song provides such a sweet, fitting description of how the lovely couple views each other.
5. "Come, Sweet Death" by Johann Sebastian Bach
'Till death do us part, and may it not tarry overlong!
6. "What She Don't Know" by Rascal Flatts
Trust, of course, is vital to any relationship. Honesty is also helpful, and nothing facilitates honest conversations like unhealthy suspicions!
7. "I See Fire" by Ed Sheeran
"I see fire harvesting souls, I see fire burning through the trees. And I hope that you remember me..."
8. "Pray For You" by Jaron and The Long Road to Love
Providing a more spiritual side to it all, this song must be listened to fully appreciate its significance on the marriage day.
