10. Justin Timberlake - Mirrors
Now that Justin Timberlake is married to wife Jessica Biel, he's singing from a first-hand perspective of what marriage is actually like. This song is all about how the person you're with is a metaphorical reflection of who you are... beautiful!
Best Lyrics - "I'm lookin' right at the other half of me, The vacancy that sat in my heart, Is a space that now you hold, Show me how to fight for now, And I'll tell you, baby, it was easy, Comin' back here to you once I figured it out, You were right here all along."
9. The Knocks feat. Powers - Classic
This funky track is a must at any wedding and sure to get everyone swaying and grooving on the dance floor. Like the name says, this track is a classic!
Best Lyrics - "Yeah, it feels so CLASSIC, You and me, the magic, And I know we have it, 'Cause it feels, yeah, it feels, yeah, It feels so CLASSIC!"
8. Vance Joy - Riptide
The melody of Riptide is as beautiful as the lyrics. The perfect song to grab your wife and have a fun arm in arm dance to.
Best Lyrics - "Oh lady, running down to the riptide, Taken away to the dark side, I wanna be your left hand man."
7. Taylor Swift - Shake It Off
Love her or hate her, Taylor Swift's first single off her album 1989 is catchy! If you find yourself sitting down when this song comes on your toe will start tapping and before you know it you'll be on the dance-floor!
Best Lyrics - "Cause the players gonna play, play, play, play, play... And the haters gonna hate, hate, hate, hate, hate... I'm just gonna shake, shake, shake, shake, shake... I shake it off, I shake it off."
6. Bruno Mars - Treasure
When it comes to wedding songs, Bruno Mars is a master. We didn't think songs could get any more wedding worthy than his hit "Marry Me," but somehow we found our new must-play. "Treasure" is a fun, playful and totally dance-able hit.
Best Lyrics - "Treasure, that is what you are. Honey, you're my golden star, You know you can make my wish come true, If you let me treasure you."
5. John Legend - All Of Me
If the romantic lyrics haven't convinced you that this makes the perfect first-dance song, then the story behind it will. John Legend performed it for his wife, Chrissy Teigen, at their wedding in September 2013!
Best Lyrics - "Cause all of me, Loves all of you, Love your curves and all your edges, All your perfect imperfections, Give your all to me, I'll give my all to you."
4. Clean Bandit feat. Jess Glynne - Rather Be
A super sweet song with a joyful, upbeat tune. And the lyrics are utterly perfect for a wedding.
Best Lyrics - "When I am with you, there's no place I'd rather be."
3. Beyonce - XO
Beyonce's self titled album has been a massive hit, and we're thinking that "XO" is the perfect song to end the night with. It will have every guest on the dance floor making X's and O's with their arms.
Best Lyrics - "In the darkest hour, I'll search through the crowd, Your face is all that I see, I'll give you everything, Baby love me lights out."
2. Ed Sheeran - Sing
Produced by Pharrell this track is the ultimate party anthem. It will have everyone singing along and chanting in unison "sing"... "LOUDER"!
Best Lyrics - "I need you darling, Come on set the tone, If you feel you're falling, Won't you let me know, Louder! Sing!"
1. Pharrell - Happy
Hands down the biggest song of 2014! As the title suggests, no one can help but feel like dancing when listening to this song. This track also makes for the perfect song for your entrance!
Best Lyrics - "Clap along if you feel like a room without a roof... Because I'm happy, Clap along if you feel like happiness is the truth... Because I'm happy!"
