VH1 released a list of the greatest artists of all-time. However, we would like to take that list and provide our favorite wedding song by those artists. Here is our continuation for numbered artists 20-1. Some artists listed do not perform music considered standard wedding music. If we are speechless on a suggestion, please offer your own as a comment. We will consider making changes to our list.
20 Marvin Gaye – Marvin was one of the best male R&B artists of all-time. Too bad his life ended too early. There are many songs Marvin created that are suitable for a wedding. However, our favorite is Ain’t No Mountain High Enough sung with Tammi Terrell.
19 U2 – One of the best rock bands of all-time. A great way to start wedding festivities is Beautiful Day.
18 Pink Floyd – We could choose Money for the dollar dance but many brides feel the dollar dance as asking for money. Therefore, we’ll select Mother for the Mother Son dance.
17 Queen – You’re My Best Friend can be played in so many scenarios during a wedding reception. Play it for parent dances, for friends or even a first dance.
16 Madonna – We could easily select Vogue as an iconic dance party song. However, our pick is the love song Crazy For You. This song also played in two scenes in the movie Vision Quest.
15 The Beach Boys – If you are slower tempo song, we select Kokomo. For a more upbeat song we select Good Vibrations.
14 Nirvana – The most mainstream song by Nirvana was Smells Like Teen Spirit. However, for the Nirvana fan we would select Heart Shaped Box.
13 The Who – This was actually a difficult pick. We select a great grand entrance song (being from Las Vegas) from the hit show CSI – Who Are You.
12 David Bowie – Our wedding song pick is appropriately called The Wedding Song.
11 Bob Marley – The reggae master hits all the right wedding notes in his song Three Little Birds.
10 Stevie Wonder – Our favorite wedding song by Stevie is You Are The Sunshine Of My Life. However, a great song just about the bride is Isn’t She Lovely.
09 James Brown – Let’s get everyone to the dance floor and feel good with I Got You (I Feel Good).
08 Elvis Presley – One of the most romantic songs of all time sung in a’capella is Can’t Help Falling In Love.
07 Prince – What a great way to have the bride and groom kiss is every time Prince sing Kiss, the bride and groom must kiss. This is better than tinging on glasses and ringing bells.
06 Jimi Hendrix – A great song all about ladies for the bouquet toss and all about the ladies present at a wedding reception is Foxey Lady.
05 Bob Dylan – For all the folk fans I don’t think you would be disappointed with I Want You.
04 Rolling Stones – If you want an entrance song, football games commonly began with Start Me Up. To get people on the dance floor, we suggest Brown Sugar.
03 Led Zeppelin – This is a coin flip for our favorite Led Zeppelin wedding song between Thank You and All Of My Love.
02 Michael Jackson – You could select Thriller as a fantastic group dance. For a love song we select I Just Can’t Stop Loving You.
01 The Beatles – Being former wedding DJs, the 2 most popular Beattles songs that were most commonly requested were When I’m Sixty-Four and In My Life.
This is our conclusion of our favorite wedding songs by the greatest artists of all-time as ranked by VH1.
