Wedding Ceremony & Reception Music Discussions

80's First Dance music

Hi Knotties,
My FI and I are having trouble picking out music for our first dance.  We are doing a mostly 80's reception, and want to stay away from songs that have been done as a first dance 1000 times, and anything to power-ballad.  I really appreciate your suggestions.

    Ooh... an 80's reception - sounds like fun!  Here are some suggestions keeping with your music theme:

    Heaven is a Place on Earth - Belinda Carlisle
    Lost In Your Eyes - Debbie Gibson
    True - Spandau Ballet
    The Cure - Just Like Heaven (this may be too fast)

    Good luck!

    I second Love of a Lifetime, that's what I'm using, Firehouse also has When I Look into Your Eyes, I struggled between the two for a while before I made up my mind.

    My fiancee and I are doing a mostly 80's reception too and haven't decided on a first dance song.  I've been spending a lot of time googling 80's love songs / power ballads.  I think "Forever" by Kiss is one of the top contenders...
