Music is an easy way to bring people together and that is why we have rounded up a list of Our Favourite Love Songs of 2017 for you to share! We even included a few that would make a great choice for your first dance at your wedding – and if you are looking for more inspiration be sure to follow our National Bridal Show account on Spotify.
#1. Perfect – Ed Sheeran feat Beyonce. Obviously no love song compilation would be complete without a hit from Ed Sheeran. After the release of his third studio album ÷ earlier this year Perfect was the fourth single to be sent to the top of the Top 40 radio charts, and we know his duet with Beyonce will be a great success too!
#2. Love on the Weekend – John Mayer. Known for his ballads, John Mayer was the perfect selection for our list. After a three year hiatus he released his new album The Search for Everything this past spring, with Love on the Weekend as his first single. We recommend listening to this one on your next road trip together!
#3. From the Ground Up – Dan and Shay. Warning: this song might make you cry… This country/pop duo nails it on the lyrics and if this isn’t the perfect first dance song than we don’t know what is…
#4. Real Love Baby – Father John Misty. From his album Pure Comedy, this song deserves to be put on repeat. It is a great choice for a more casual and laid-back wedding. We think it would be ideal for a beach ceremony or bohemian inspired wedding, following the footsteps of the singer who got married in the gorgeous beachy coastline of Big Sur, California.
#5. The Cure – Lady Gaga. Thousands of viewers tuned in to watch her performance of this song during the American Music Awards last weekend, singing about the healing effects of love is a positive message that we love to stand behind!
#6. What Lovers Do – Maroon 5 feat SZA. Although their new album Red Pill Blues was only released earlier this month, this single is super catchy and all over pop radio. We think this song is perfect to play in the background while you get ready for your next date night.
#7. So Good – Zara Larsson feat. Ty Dolla $ign. This single is another catchy tune to add to your favourite playlist. Simply put- this song is so good.
#8. In Case You Didn’t Know – Brett Young. Are you having a rustic themed wedding? We think this country ballad would be ideal for your first dance, and you have Brett Young to thank for that! We also recommend Boyce Avenue’s cover of this song too.
#9. Something Just Like This – Coldplay feat. The Chainsmokers. Coldplay has been giving us music hits since the mid ‘90s and their newest single Something Just Like This is no exception. This song should be in your list of ‘must-haves’ for your favourite DJ/band to play during the wedding reception!
#10. Say You Won’t Let Go – James Arthur. Get the tissues ready because this mega hit from singer-songwriter James Arthur had to complete the list of Our Favourite Love Songs of 2017. We are sure this song is featured in a Nicholas Sparks blockbuster somewhere!
