Some songs really do say it best when they say nothing at all. If you don’t want to distract from your dancing with lyrics, there are more than a few songs to choose from for your first dance. For all of you who don’t think classics like Handel, Tchaikovsky or Mozart will do the trick, you’re in luck. Plenty of popular modern love songs have been covered with strings and keys, so put your headphones in and get to finding that perfect track for your first spin around the dance floor with your S.O.
