7Aerosmith - I Don't Want To Miss A Thing
I never understood why a song titled "I don't Want To Miss A Thing" would be the lead track for a movie about an asteroid that's on route to collide with earth. Either way, it's a bit overplayed but can still make for a good first dancer.
6Goo Goo Dolls - Iris
Cheesy 90s rock song? Yes. Good first dance song? Absolutely!
5Led Zeppelin - Thank You
Thank you Led Zeppelin for this wonderful love song. You might also want to consider Chris Cornell's cover of this song.
4U2- All I Want Is You
U2 is always a safe bet, and All I Want Is You is the perfect first dance song.
3Pearl Jam - Just Breathe
This little gem emerged from Pearl Jam's latest studio album, Backspacer. It's such a beautiful tune.
2Dave Matthews Band - Crash Into Me (Boyce Avenue acoustic cover)
This rendition of Crash Into Me by Dave Matthews Band is perfect for a first dance. It will make her cry, and who knows, maybe he'll shed a tear too.
1Foo Fighters - Everlong (acoustic)
Everlong is a beautiful rock song with simplistic yet powerful lyrics. Unfortunately, it doesn't lend well for a first dance. On the flip side, Dave Grohl records his music acoustically before giving them the rock treatment and finding an acoustic version of Everlong is easy. Foo Fighters tend to finish their sets with this rendition of Everlong but that doesn't mean that you can't use it as your first.
