Playlist: 90s Wedding

Will you ever marry someone who tells you that 90s is NOT the best decade for music? No way right! Your wedding reception should be playing songs from the golden era of music. Maybe even as you walk down the aisle. Here are 15 tracks from the 90s that are best suited for your wedding.

I Don’t Want to Miss a Thing by Aerosmith

The inspiration behind I Don’t Want to Miss a Thing was the father-daughter relationship between Steve Tyler and Liv Tyler. But music has different meanings to different individuals. As time passed, this Aerosmith classic has taken on the form of a romantic cheesy ballad that us wannabes attempt to belt out every single time it plays.

I Swear by All-4-One

What does swearing by the moon and the stars in the sky really mean? More so, the shadow that’s by your side? This was poetic then. I guess it would be trashed if it got released today. But it has its charm that makes us smile and appreciate how much we’ve grown since.

Every Time I Close My Eyes by Babyface

This would be one of my personal picks. Babyface certainly struck gold when he crafted this masterpiece. I’m not religious. But I’ve got to say that his faith and passion swept me away.

Back at One by Brian McKnight

People have some weird obsession with lists and countdowns. I guess that’s why you’re reading this article. And it’s probably why we cannot get enough of this song.

I Love You Always Forever by Donna Lewis

Donna Lewis has a sweet and tender voice that makes this track ear candy. But had her words been uttered by someone else, chances are, the lyrics might come off as obsessive, creepy and even scary.

All My Life by K-Ci and JoJo

The only weird part you’d have to ignore is the incest vibe that reeks from this song. I mean, you’re close to me like my mother, or father, or brother, or sister? Hmmm, no thanks.

Lost in Space by The Lighthouse Family

This song can be about God, your significant other or even a friend. And I guess that is the magic of love and how divine it becomes. Honestly though, even with someone so perfect, you’d probably get lost in space.

Amazed by Lonestar

When I first heard “Amazed”, I didn’t even know it was supposed to be in the “country” genre. I guess that’s the power of love (I did not just say that). It’s borderless and transcends arbitrary classifications. Love is love.

Angel of Mine by Monica

I remember when this was released two decades back and making requests and voting on radio charts were a thing. This was one of the few times I managed to make my voice count. I loved the fierce and feisty Monica in “The Boy is Mine”. But “Angel of Mine” is her vulnerable. And once in a while, we take off the cloak of strength and let our guards down the way Monica did.

I’ll Stand By You by The Pretenders

To be honest, I only heard of this song when Carrie Underwood covered it for an American Idol benefit. But I have not been able to get this off my mind since. These are simple, heartfelt and timeless words that never fail to captivate hearts.

She’s the One by Robbie Williams

“The one” is a concept you’d revisit numerous times in your life. If you’re getting married, especially in a country without divorce, you better wish you have the wisdom to properly discern “the one”. Otherwise, “the one” might just end up being “the one that got away”

Truly, Madly, Deeply by Savage Garden

“Shoulda, Woulda, Coulda” was always a popular catchphrase. No artist needed to make that happen. However, Savage Garden managed to create their own with this 90s hit. Although they would gain success with “I Knew I Loved You”, no track of theirs can ever match this original.

From This Moment on by Shania Twain

The selection could’ve been “You’re Still the One” or this and it would work just as well on this list. Shania Twain made it big outside of country music in the 90s primarily for her ballads. It’s a travesty she has not shared the magic she possesses since.

Kiss Me by Sixpence None the Richer

Kisses are depicted as romantic. But a lot of them are messy and the passionate ones involve tongue action. I guess projecting the least occurring is the favored approach.

Cupid by 112

Once you get butterflies in your stomach before the big day, that means you’re beginning to think. Having doubts and checking if your senses are still intact should prepare you for the craziest decision of your life. Do any of your musings make a difference if you’re being wooed with a song as tender and as affectionate as this one?
