Top Wedding First Dance Songs Of 2012

We asked our listeners to come up with a list of unique and newer wedding songs for 2012. Since I just got married last year, I know how difficult it can be to find that one song that really fits the couple: most of the lists out there are the same year-to-year (we get it, Etta James’ “At Last” is a beautiful song!) and sometimes just one lyric can make you reject it. Hopefully, one of these songs work:

All those years living in a blur

If she’s here it’s crystal clear
I’m where I’m meant to go
