Ray LaMontagne's "You are the Best Thing" has been a popular wedding request for the last several years. I think "Airwaves" is a real highlight of his newest album Supernova. While "Airwaves" doesn't have the driving energy of "You are the Best Thing", it still makes for a great dinner/cocktail hour song.

This song has been covered by everyone from Wilson Pickett and the Rolling Stones to the 13th Floor Elevators. It was a hit for the Blues Brothers in 1980. But the Solomon Burke original is still my favorite version.
This is really the perfect punk love song. I can overstate how much I enjoy this song. Great slow build to crescendo of tambourine, echoed hand claps and riffs. Apparently Nick Lowe played on this which explains a lot, but the raspy vocals and "yeahs" supplied by Wreckless Eric are perfect. Enjoy!
Amazing Nu-Disco from Breakbot. I love how the beat drops in and continues to build through the song.
Tom Petty has an immense catalog with numerous songs that work great at weddings for dancing, dinner or cocktail hour. Wildflowers is a classic.
