This week Tom Odell’s long awaited new album Wrong Crowd launched and it got me thinking to the many songs he has written/covered that would make perfect first dances…
- Grow Old With Me
Grow old with me
Let us share what we see
And oh the best it could be
Just you and I
2. Till I Lost – this will forever be one of my favourite Tom Odell songs (though maybe a little sad for a first dance)
Just wandering town with you…Would be enough
3. Real Love (The Beatles cover)
It’s real love
4. Video Games (Lana Del Rey cover) – Tom Odell sang this for Fearne Cotton and Jesse Wood’s wedding
It’s you, it’s you, it’s all for you
Everything I do
I tell you all the time
Heaven is a place on earth with you
FYI I love Tom Odell…
Penny & The Quarters are a “lost” soul band which came to prominence in 2010 after an unreleased demo of their song “You And Me” was used in the film Blue Valentine. Despite the sad context of the film, the song is incredible and perfect for a first dance.
If you love a soul more than fame and gold, and that soul feels the same about you,
It’s a natural fact, there’s no turning back, and here’s some advice to you:
You’ve got to say it’s, You and me.
If you should ever leave me
Though life would still go on believe me
The world could show nothing to me
So what good would living do me
God only knows what I’d be without you
One of my all time favourite pianists – Ben Folds with one of the most romantic songs. Perfect for a first dance:
Every time I read about a recent wedding, the second thing I do (after checking out the brides beautiful gown of course), is find out what song the couple chose to share their first dance. Music is so important and personal to every couple, and the song chosen will forever be THE song that will make you smile and think of each other.
I’m building the ultimate first dance playlist and will gradually post my choices.
Bright Eyes – First Day Of My Life
