Wind Beneath My Wings or Endless Love? 6 of the worst first dance wedding songs

Unless you want your guests shuffling awkwardly, don't choose these cringe-worthy songs...

First wedding dance sings bette midler, wind beneath my wings
No matter how much you dreamed about slow dancing to Endless Love on your wedding day (it was 1981, you also had a perm, we will let you off all sins against taste, fashion and music) it's now 2013 and time to leave that cheese-fest behind.

We don't care if you've got a serious sentimental attachment to any of these numbers - they should never make it on to the wedding playlist let alone be chosen for the all-important first dance.

1. Wind Beneath My Wings by Bette Midler

Sample lyrics: "Did you ever know that you're my hero?"

Verdict: Be your own hero ladies and ditch this song.



2. I Honestly Love You by Olivia Newton John

Sample lyrics: "I'm not trying to make you feel uncomfortable"

Verdict: We honestly loved her in Grease but this is just weird and, yes, you are making us feel uncomfortable with this emotional performance from 1974...



3. Endless Love by Lionel Richie and Diana Ross

Sample lyrics: "Your eyes, your eyes, they tell me how much you care"

Verdict: Your guests' eyes will be crying with laughter when they see you shuffling to this duet from wedding hell.



4. I Will Always Love You by Dolly Parton

Sample lyrics: "Bittersweet memories, that is all I'm taking with me"

Verdict: This is actually the saddest song ever and isn't about endless love, it's about an ending love. Soooo not appropriate for a first dance! Plus it's the most overplayed, clichéd song ever. Poor Dolly.



5. When a Man Loves a Woman by Michael Bolton

Sample lyrics: "If she's bad he can't see it, she can do no wrong. Turn his back on his best friend if he put her down."

Verdict: This is a terrible life lesson to teach any new husband, but secondly it's all about mad obsessive love, not the balanced, successful relationship kinda' love. Plus, it's very power ballad...someone WILL do the Backstreet Boys 'hand pull' in this one (arm in the air, palm open, pull towards chest while making a fist, preferably add slightly pained facial expression).



6. You're Beautiful by James Blunt

Sample lyrics: "There must be an angel with a smile on her face, when she thought up that I should be with you." Eeerrr, come again?

Verdict: It's been played to death, don't be the person who finally puts the nail in the coffin. The worst song of the past ten years? Potentially yes. It might even beat Rebecca Black's Friday.



Oh, and don't even get us started on Seal's Kiss From a Rose. Now you know what to avoid (we promise your guests will be grateful) take a look at what you should be dancing to here.
