Hey guys i hope everyone is well.

last night me and my boyfriend (eventually husband, i've given up with the f word) were chatting away about first dance songs. We're both metal heads, love our punk, ska and indie and dont want a sterotypical pop love song, we were chatting away before the convosation got silly and he was suggesting heavy metal and moshing. we got as far as death cab for cutie- follow you into the dark and head automatica- beating hearts baby

Which got me wondering what everyone else choose?

There's also always the Amanda Palmer cover of I Will Follow You Into the Dark...if you're into her, of course.

We didn't have a first dance, but we walked out of the ceremony to Just Like Heaven by The Cure. 1) It's a perfect love song, 2) it's really dark, and 3) it's poppy enough not to alienate anyone.

The computer we were going to use for music (and did for our wedding march) got left behind at the spot of our ceremony by a friend by mistake. If we could have had our first dance it would have been The Masochism Tango by Tom Lehrer, just for the hell of it and because we find the song funny as all get out.

Our first dance was to "Accidentally in Love" by the Counting Crows, because we started our relationship as "just sex, nothing more." Whoops! Guess I messed that one up ;)

The HorrorPops - "Walk Like A Zombie."

It was awesomely fun to dance to, and we had a ton of people tell us that they had never heard the song before, but they thought it was perfect for us XD

We're not even having a first dance. Both my fella and I *loathe* dancing. I shouldn't have to be counting down the seconds during our reception until we get to start having *real* fun again if we dance, so we're just going to skip it.

We'll have a first video game round/match/race instead.

we didn't dance at all. i walked down the "aisle" (outdoors) to "mellon collie and the infinite sadness" by the smashing pumpkins, and "our song" is "a little piece of heaven" by avenged sevenfold. the song features a wedding and would be adequately fun for the dancing-inclined. i'm going to listen to the other songs suggested here!

I've always wanted Floods by Pantera or This Love by Pantera... but even though Floods is dark, I love the rhythm to it and it's entirely capable of being classically danced to. Plus who doesn't love the sound of Dimebag's guitar with a storm in the background? The solo alone speaks volumes of dark romance.
