You know that moment during a wedding reception when the bandleader or DJ asks all couples that have been married for a certain amount of years to hit the dance floor? That's called the anniversary dance, and it's one of the sweetest traditions around. As the bride and groom embark on the first day of their marriage, many guests have been together for 20, 30, and even 40 years or more, and that's definitely something worth celebrating. If you want to include this custom during your reception, now's a good time to pick the song you want to play for that moment.
Any tune with a message of everlasting love is a good selection. We're big fans of Paul Simon's "Still Crazy After All These Years" and Billie Holliday's "As Time Goes By." Even better? Songs that look forward to even more years of happiness, like Al Green's "Let's Stay Together." Chances are, you've already considered one of these for your first dance song, so why not get a chance to play two songs that speak to you? Give our playlist a listen and get ready for the emotional moment when all those longtime couples hit the dance floor.
