Truth be told, movies would be nothing without their romantic music and soundtracks! Can you imagine a wedding, nay, a world, without Whitney Houston's rendition of "I Will Always Love You?" If she hadn't covered the Dolly Parton hit for 1992's The Bodyguard, there would be so many married couples from the past two decades with a different first dance song. Add in Celine Dion's iconic "My Heart Will Go On" from Titanic, and you'll realize where we're going with this — an entire wedding playlist of songs from movies!

We curated a special Spotify playlist of these memorable hits, and it naturally includes tons of romantic songs like the ones we just mentioned. The Bee Gees's "How Deep Is Your Love?" from Saturday Night Fever is eternally popular for first dances, while Seal's "Kiss From a Rose," as featured in Batman Forever, is equally fitting.

But let's not forget the dance party-ready tunes either. Kenny Loggins' "Footloose" and Irene Cara's "Flashdance...What a Feeling" from those movies are everlasting '80s songs that no wedding should go without. Add in Destiny's Child's "Independent Women, Pt. 1" (hello, Charlie's Angels!) and the Grease classic "Summer Nights," and you really have a rockin' reception ready to go!

Take a listen to our playlist, and if you really want to have some fun with it, try to guess what movies the songs were in! Or, in the case of Blondie's "Call Me," see if you can name all of the movies in which it played. Either way, we know you'll find some great music for your wedding, so enjoy!
