top modern wedding songsSpotify assembled a list of top modern wedding songs. At the head of the list was the hit song, “Shallow,” from the movie, “A Star is Born.” It’s a nice duet between Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper. Take a listen:

Frankly, the lyrics aren’t all that impressive for a wedding. Here’s an excerpt:

“I’m off the deep end, watch as I dive in

I’ll never meet the ground

Crash through the surface, where they can’t hurt us

We’re far from the shallow now.”

Number two on the list is “Sucker” by Jonas Brothers. It features a nice, pop beat with minimal instrumentation, as you can hear:

The lyrics aren’t exactly sublime, but they certainly fit the mood of a wedding:

I’m a sucker for you

You say the word and I’ll go anywhere blindly

I’m a sucker for you, yeah

Any road you take, you know that you’ll find me

I’m a sucker for all the subliminal things

No one knows about you (About you), about you (About you)

And you’re makin’ the typical me break my typical rules

It’s true, I’m a sucker for you, yeah.

Speaking of suckers, everyone is a sucker for Taylor Swift, who has a knack for writing catchy tunes that tell interesting stories. Like her 2008: Love Story, # 3 on Spotify’s list of top wedding songs: Take a listen:

The best modern wedding songs tell an interesting story. Swift does just that by connecting a love affair to Romeo and Juliet:

Romeo, save me, I’ve been feeling so alone
I keep waiting for you but you never come
Is this in my head? I don’t know what to think
He knelt to the ground & pulled out a ring & said
Marry me, Juliet, you’ll never have to be alone
I love you & that’s all I really know
I talked to your dad, go pick out a white dress.
It’s a love story baby, just say “Yes”.

Lauv had a nice song, “I like me better,” #4 on the list:

It’s got a nice message for a wedding:

I like me better when I’m with you.
I like me better when I’m with you.
I knew from the first time, I’d stay for a long time, ‘cause
I like me better when I’m with you.

“Something ‘Bout You” by Sir Rosevelt rounds out the top five on Spotify’s  top modern wedding songs:

Again, a nice message for a wedding:

There’s something ’bout you, you

And all the little things that you do, do

Girl, I can’t explain it

No matter how hard I try to put my finger on it

There’s just something ’bout you

Something ’bout you, you

Got me feeling something brand new

Ooh, I think I’m going crazy

It’s more than just your mind.

It’s more than just your body, baby

There’s just something ’bout you.
