I know you have spent countless hours surfing through lists jam-pack loaded with Huey Lewis and Bob Seger, but you have finally found the right list. Know this.

Albany Wedding DJs

FINALLY! A modern First Dance Wedding Song List!


There are a whole lot of “Old Fart Wedding DJ Song Lists” littering our internet, written by semi-retired, gray-bearded, Grateful Dead Jerry Garcia-look-alike disc jockeys. These DJs get one gig a month and therefore had plenty of time to flood the web with their power-ballad favorites! Do you really want Dirty Dancing-like smarmy smash Delilah Show hits at your wedding?

Until now, in order to find good modern first dance songs ideas on the net, you had to weed through a whole host of artists with sweet mullets who are no longer relevant today. Most brides and grooms have no idea who these singers were and probably weren’t even alive yet when they were popular. This list concentrates on newer music of today. Here is my list:
