    I don't think this really counts as modern, but....."In My Life" By Ozzy.I know what you must be thinking, but I listened to it just for fun, not thinking there was a chance in the world I was going to want to dance to it. But he does an amazing job!  We wanted to use the one by Johnny Cash, but his voice wasn't right for a first dance, but somehow Ozzy really pulls it off while including string instruments. Listen to it at the very least; you will be surprised!

    Blue October- "Calling You" (my sister and bil's) Red Hot Chili Peppers- "Hard to Concentrate"

    hilarious, "Hard to Concentrate" by RHCP was our 1st dance song up until about 2 days ago!!! We recently changed it to "Follow You, Follow Me" by Genesis. It's an oldie, but a timeless classic. How about: - "Waste" by Phish (this was my original idea, but my fiance thought it would be "too cliche" amongst our other Phish friends...ugh!) - "I'm Amazed" - MMJ GL!

    "How Glad I Am" by The Greyboy Allstars was also in the running for a while...check it out on itunes, it's modern with a jazzy twist.

    I think we're using "You and Me" by Dave Matthews Band off their new cd- Big Whiskey & the Groo Grux King :-)

    amybw, thanks for posting Tangled Up in You. I'd never heard it, but I absolutely love it. He has such a beautiful voice.
