Love songs are what fill dance floors. They bring back memories and invoke a true feeling of love from within. Typically, couples will always dance to slow songs at wedding receptions. This post is focused on the most popular love songs of the 1950s. We have selected songs that also make fantastic first dance songs for brides and grooms.
The fifties were the dawn of Rock and Roll. However, the mainstream included Doo-Wop, Rhythm and Blues, Rockabilly, Country, and many vocalists or Jazz artists.
