Singer/Songwriter Week

It’s Singer/Songwriter week on Songs for a wedding. The Singer/Songwriter genre is great for wedding songs. Their music are usually mellow, honest and heartfelt, it’s hard not to melt to these kinds of songs when you hear them. Good thing about Singer/Songwriter songs are they are usually unique because they seldom go mainstream. Most of the songs we’ll feature here are probably songs you’ve heard of before but don’t remember what the title is. Listen to them again as we guarantee they are perfect for your wedding. For the first part of Singer/Songwriter week we’ll feature 2 artists Joshua Radin and Ingrid Michaelson.

1. Joshua Radin -I’d rather be with You

A good love song by Joshua Radin, perfect lyrics and good melody, you can’t go wrong with this song. It can be used for proposal or the wedding day itself. Part of the lyrics goes “I need to be bold, Need to jump in the cold water, Need to grow older with a girl like you, Finally see you are naturally, The one to make it so easy, When you show me the truth, Yeah, I’d rather be with you, Say you want the same thing too”.

Hmm it seems like your website ate my first comment (it was super long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I wrote and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog.
I as well am an aspiring blog blogger but I’m still new to everything. Do you have any suggestions for inexperienced blog writers? I’d really appreciate it.
