What Is The Number One Wedding Song?

Music can be considered almost the main element of the wedding. Properly selected compositions will provide the event with solemnity and festive mood for all guests.

What song should be used for this? The question is not as simple as it might seem at first glance. To do this, you should carefully get acquainted with what kind of song in the world is considered the most frequently listened to at weddings?

But the fact is that we are considering only the English-speaking segment. It is clear that at a Chinese or Brazilian wedding, completely different songs will be played, in other languages  and in a different style.

To be honest, there are simply no statistics on the most popular wedding song. But we will try to somehow systematize the search.

To do this, let’s turn to the statistics of the world’s most popular Swedish music streaming service Spotify. They say he knows everything about music.

So, according to Spotify, the top five most popular wedding songs are as follows:

  1. Marry You – Bruno Mars
  2. Love On Top – Beyonce
  3. Signed, Sealed, Delivered (I’m Yours) – Stevie Wonder
  4. Thinking Out Loud – Ed Sheeran
  5. I Wanna Dance with Somebody (Who Loves Me) – Whitney Houston

The songs were included in this list not by chance. The streaming service maintains its statistics of listening to each of them. This means that this or that wedding song received more or less number of plays in a certain period of time, in this case, five years.

We talked about celebrating a wedding. But what songs are most often used during the wedding ceremony, except for the mega-popular, but already slightly forgotten March of Mendelssohn.

So, we turn again to the statistics of the music streaming service Spotify. The top five musical leaders of wedding ceremonies look like this:

  1. We Found Love – Rihanna, Calvin Harris
  2. Crazy In Love (feat. Jay-Z) – Beyoncе, JAY-Z
  3. I Gotta Feeling – Black Eyed Peas
  4. Love On Top – Beyoncе
  5. September – Earth, Wind & Fire

But, if you are going to organize a wedding ceremony, then it is up to you to decide which songs and when to listen to at the wedding. After all, it is necessary to take into account many factors: the age of the bride and groom, the country in which the wedding takes place and even its region, the place of the ceremony, and so on.
