Want some unexpected wedding songs that you haven’t heard at all of your friend’s weddings? Then you’re in for a treat! These five unique wedding songs are just the right amount of romantic without an overload of cheesiness.
Stay with me – Sam Smith
Who doesn’t love Sam Smith? The English singer-songwriter has delighted us since his rise to stardom in 2012. We love this sweet song as a wedding song because although it’s not your typical “romance song” with lyrics like “Guess it’s true, I’m not good at a one-night stand
But I still need love ’cause I’m just a man
These nights never seem to go to plan
I don’t want you to leave, will you hold my hand?”.
Queen Bey does it again. We love this intense pop track. Our favourite lyric? “When my days look low, pull me in close and don’t let me go
Make love to me, so when the worlds at war, let our love heal us all”
Lovers in Japan- Coldplay
This upbeat track from the British rock quad. They have many hits, but this sweet track about Japan gets us right in the feels. Chris Martin told entertainment weekly: ‘No one associates romance with Japan. Everyone thinks [the country] is just about Hitachi and neon signs, but every time we’re there, we see these amazing sunrises. It’s very sexy.‘
Our favourite lyric:
“I’m just a prisoner
In a reign of love”
I will follow you into the dark – Death cab for cutie
Seth Cohen’s favourite band will always have a place in our hearts! There are also some amazing covers of this song, like this version by Natalie Imbruglia:
There is a light that never goes out – The Smiths
I walk the line – Johnny Cash
Johnny Cash, the iconic American singer-songwriter broke hearts with this romantic tune. Johnny had quite the talent for writing songs and letters for this soulmate and wife, June Carter Cash, with the letter he penned for her 65th birthday being voted the most romantic love letter of all time. There are also covers of this track, including Halsey’s version.
