List Rules Vote up which songs you think are the most unique to use for a first dance.

What are the most unique songs for first dance? This list includes great unique songs such as "Anyone But You," ”I was Made For You,” and “White Wedding.” Just because a song is being used for a first dance during a wedding doesn't mean that it can't be fun or offbeat. Newlyweds can take this moment to really let their personality shine through with their favorite song or by busting a move to a non-stereotypical wedding dance song. Some of these songs can even be used for a mother/son or father/daughter dance.
 

So many love songs have been overused and worn out for a first wedding dance, so this list is all about mixing it up. These love songs aren't the same old mish mosh you're used to listening to at a wedding, so take a look through and vote up all your favorite offbeat songs to use for a first dance. Know of a song that would be great for a first dance but isn't on the list? Feel free to add it.
