Top 10 Slow Dance Songs

by

Do you remember how romantic it was to slow dance with your special someone at your high school prom or homecoming dance? Do you remember how dreamy it was to move to the music, close enough to smell his cologne and feel his heartbeat, at the same time escaping into a world of pure bliss? A slow dance can be a quick and easy way to add a burst of romance to the end of a date night, or at anytime for that matter. It’s an easy way to reconnect physically and emotionally with your husband, and it doesn’t even involve any talking! My husband and I slow dance often, sometimes stealing a quick dance in our driveway to music playing on our car stereo before we relieve the babysitter at the end of our date night. Sometimes we steal a dance in our living room after we put the kids to bed, or underneath the stars on our back deck.  The key to a perfectly romantic slow dance is picking the perfect song! There are so many great songs out there, but keep reading for my list of my all-time Top 10 Slow Dance Songs!

When you’re picking a song to slow dance to, keep in mind a few things. Try to find a song with a slow tempo. It’s hard to slow dance to a fast song. {wink} I LOVE old fashioned love songs that have soul from artists like Frank Sinatra, Sam Cooke {LOVE Sam Cooke’s “Wonderful World”!}, and Etta James. It can be ‘your song’ or a song that’s lyrics say just what you are feeling in that moment. Need to say “I’m sorry?” Find a song that says that, or a song that expresses how thankful you are for your husband’s support. Songs move us and inspire us. Pick the right one and you can inspire your hubby with some serious romance. :) So here they are… my absolute favorite slow dance songs, with a few for every occasion.

Top 10 Slow Dance Songs

  1. At Last” …. Etta James
  2. When You Say Nothing At All“… Allison Krauss
  3. Unforgettable“… Natalie Cole & Nat King Cole
  4. Bless The Broken Road“… Rascal Flatts
  5. Can’t Help Falling In Love“… Elvis Presley
  6. The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face“… Roberta Flack
  7. (I Love You) For Sentimental Reasons“… Sam Cooke
  8. When A Man Loves A Woman“… Percy Sledge
  9. The Way You Look Tonight“… Michael Buble
  10. Because You Loved Me“… Celine Dion

I could go on and on, but these top 10 should give you a great place to start. You could even burn these songs and more onto a “Love Mix” CD for quick and easy convenience when the slow dance mood strikes. I did! :) I know it’s supposed to be a top 10, but I have to throw in one honorable mention that you will want to check out – “A Kiss To Build A Dream On” from Louis Armstrong. So dreamy! Don’t forget! A slow dance is the perfect way to end a romantic date night like Becca’s romantic rooftop date! {Can you imagine a romantic slow dance on the roof??}
