First dance songs that are anything but ordinary!

Planning a wedding means taking care of so many tiny details. One that sometimes get overlooked but it so important is what song you are going to share for your first dance or even what song you are walking down the aisle to after being pronounced husband and wife? If you are a music obsessed maniac like myself this is like being a kid in a candy store! So many amazing songs, so little time! I've compiled a list of some AMAZING songs with AMAZING lyrics that most people have probably never even heard!
