 November 6, 2019

Picking a song for your first dance is either really easy, or really difficult. If you have a single, specific song that’s ‘your song’– perfect! You’re done! But if you have a couple, or just want something timeless, it can be more difficult to make a good pick. We picked 15 of our favorites that will never go out of style, so on your 40th anniversary you’re not explaining to your kids that, no seriously, Gangham Style really was THE song of the year! Unless that’s your jam, in which case, please proceed.
