Top 10 Wedding First Dance Songs 2011 – Part 4/5
Welcome to Part 4 of The Top 10 Wedding First Dance Songs for 2011. It features Gladys Knight and The Carpenters.
You’re The Best Thing
Glady’s Knight’s song, ‘You’re the best thing that ever happened to me’ is a sincere love song, with words such as, ‘you’ll be there, between each line of pain and glory, because you’re the best thing that ever happened to me.’ I’m sure many feel that way about their partners, so it’s definitely a consideration for a first dance song, even though it’s not the popular choice people go for as wedding music.
A popular wedding song by The Carpenters
The brother and sister group have produced some amazing love songs, but I can only list one of them, one they themselves hadn’t even written, but one they’re most famous for. ‘(They Belong To Be) Close to you’ by The Carpenters is slow and mellow, but every lyric is all about being close to that special someone.
Why do birds suddenly appear
Every time you are near?
Just like me, they long to be
Close to you
There’s another 2 songs to go after this. So far, we’ve had Alicia Keys, Jason Mraz, Luther Vandross, Etta James, Mariah Carey, Chaka Khan, Gladys Knight & The Pips and The Carpenters. Hopefully these posts are useful in helping you find your first dance song.
