Doyle & I are a bit stuck on picking out a song for our first dance. We've tried asking around, but haven't met with much result. So, friendslist, would you be kind enough to suggest some ideas?

A few notes:
1. Much as I'd like it, I simply can't do justice to a tango in the wedding dress I've ordered.
2. The guests will be seated and most likely have eaten a bit prior to the actual dance. There's no need to keep it short, though too long is probably bad, too.
3. Nothing where you're dancing like you're back in middle school, please. Something where you can actually move and use the dance floor is preferred. A waltz would probably be best.

The song that has appealed to us most in sentiment is Dar Williams's "You Rise and Meet the Day," but it's not very dance-able. We're really not into the traditional sappy love song.

So, thoughts?

With the Ex-Boyfriend, when I thought I'd marry him, I wanted our first dance to be to the Turtles Happy Together. Which is very much non-traditional, but I adore the sentiment and the boppy tempo.

If you want a waltz, not much is better than Heather Alexander's "Only the Music".

EDIT: Lyrics.

Consider The Magnetic Fields. Maybe "It's Only Time" from the album "I", or "The Book of Love" from "69 Love Songs".
