Top 10 Wedding First Dance Songs 2011 – Part 3/5
Welcome to Part 3 of The Top 10 Wedding First Dance Songs for 2011. It features Mariah Carey and Chaka Khan, two powerful singers with equally powerful voices.
I Want To Know What Love Is
Originally sung by Foreigner in the 1980s, the song is still as potent in Mariah’s version. The song is all about finding that someone that can remove loneliness from your life and show you what love really is.
Chaka Khan’s Sweetest Thing
I love Rufus and Chaka Khan. Their music is at one moment, seriously funky, and at another moment, sweet and romantic, and ‘Sweetest Thing’ is a funky ballad. In fact, if you know the song, you may think the lyrics are a bit dubious, being it about how Chaka Khan wishes someone to be her sweet thing despite the fact he’s not hers. Nonetheless, as it’s a favourite of mine, I had to include it.
There’s another 4 songs to go after this. So far, we’ve had Alicia Keys, Jason Mraz, Luther Vandross, Etta James, Mariah Carey and Chaka Khan. Hopefully these posts are useful in helping you find your first dance song.
