2016 Hottest Wedding Songs

The data we are using for this post comes directly from Spotify. Spotify is a digital music platform. It gives you access to millions of songs. Based on their findings from analyzing over 6 million playlists, the most popular first dance wedding songs are Ed Sheeran’s “Thinking Out Loud,” Etta James’ “At Last,” and Ray LaMontagne’s “You Are the Best Thing.” Rounding out the top five are “All of me” by John Legend and “A Thousand Years” by Christina Perri.

What’s the second most played song after the first dance? Why those would be Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believin’,” the Black Eyed Peas’ “I Gotta Feeling,” and then random hits by Bruno Mars, plus Michael Jackson’s “Billie Jean,” and Outkast’s “Hey Ya!”

Other really popular songs that you’re sure to hear at receptions this year will also include Beyonce’s “Crazy in Love,” Bryan Adams’ “Summer of ’69,” A-Ha’s “Take On Me,” Daft Punk’s “Get Lucky” and Carly Rae Jepsen’s “Call Me Maybe,” Frank Sinatra’s classic “The Way You Look Tonight,” “Marry You” by Bruno Mars and Adele’s “Make You Feel My Love.”
