Stuck on finding wedding songs? Just wanting something a little different to the stuff you’ve heard everywhere else? Or just wanna discover new music in general? Boy, do I have good news for you!
Back before summer 2020 kicked in, I shared my alternative wedding song playlist for Spotify. Along with that one, I’ve curated a smaller one from things I’ve found on SoundCloud; mainly covers, rarities, snippets, live recordings and remixes. It’s all stuff I can’t find on Spotify.
This brings up three things; it’s not as extensive as the Spotify one, the quality of some of the tracks may be a little iffy to audiophiles but they’re all pretty listenable if you were so inclined to use one for your first dance song, and tracks may be removed without notice by the user or SoundCloud themselves.
First Dance Wedding Songs
I really love it when a couple has found a song I’ve never heard before for their first dance. A couple of years back, I heard one that stuck with me. I knew I knew the voice, it bothered me for ages until I was sat in the edit and Googled the lyrics. It was a song by Manchester Orchestra, not a band you’d normally pick for a first dance song, but I was a big fan of them in my late teens. It was at that point I realised how key the right song can be for a wedding and couple.
And no, I lost track of what that song was, and it’s one of my life goals to find it again.
Now I know how hard it can be to find new music for your everyday life, but I guarantee everyone will find something on this playlist that they’ll like. Whether you are indeed looking for wedding songs, your first dance song, the right love song to send to someone who means a lot to you, or just wanna hear new love songs on a semi-regular basis, give it a spin and multiple skips if needs be.
So, yeah, I’ve got alternative wedding music playlists on Spotify and SoundCloud now, I’m trying to figure out a YouTube one too, so that’ll come down the road with the next wedding music playlist update. but in the meantime, check out the playlists below!
If you have recommendations on artists or albums for me, give me a shout, or just let me know what you think of the playlists themselves.
Also, if you find your future first dance song or love song in here, let me know, I wanna see that stuff in real life!
