In essence, this song states that your relationship works, and your love works. We’re two peas in a pod so let’s get married.

No One’s Gonna Love You, by Band of Horses is a great option from the alternative genre to declare your feelings. Marriage should start with unbounded, unrequited love, and proclaiming that sentiment to your intended can only be a good thing. The chorus of this song sums it up, “No one’s gonna love you more than I do.” Ring the wedding bells.

Better Together – Jack Johnson

Released in 2005 on the album In Between Dreams

Lyrics To Inspire You:

It’s not always easy and
Sometimes life can be deceiving
I’ll tell you one thing, it’s always better when we’re together

Looking for something more lighthearted? Try Jack Johnson’s, Better Together. The song touches on the simple things of life, sifting through a box of pictures, stargazing together, and through the craziness of it all, ending up with the one that makes you better.

With the plucky guitar and Johnson’s mellow voice, you can propose and then sweep your fiancé into your arms for a turn around the dance floor.

Next on the list is U2’s, All I Want Is You. If you are ready to take that next step in your relationship the title and repetitive line of this song sum up everything you feel and everything your partner wants to hear. Nothing can top hearing that you’re desired beyond all else. And Bono sings it over and over again.

Somebody – Depeche Mode

Released in 1984 on the album Some Great Reward

Lyrics To Inspire You:

I want somebody to share, share the rest of my life
Share my innermost thoughts, know my intimate details
Someone who’ll stand by my side and give me support

First on the list is the Depeche Mode classic Somebody. From the opening line, “I want somebody to share, share the rest of my life,” this song encapsulates an ideal relationship.

Someone to share our innermost thoughts, someone to count on for support, someone with whom we can disagree but in the end reach an understanding, and most importantly someone who loves us passionately, “with every thought and with every breath.” Ideal proposal song? Definitely.


You’ve decided it’s time to pop the question, to get down on bended knee, to confess the feelings burning within your soul, and ask your special someone to meet you at the altar.

Knowing this is one of those moments you will both remember forever, you want it to be perfect. Like your favorite movie, the two lovers meet, gaze into each other’s eyes, and then . . . cue the music.

Pick a song that you have an emotional connection with for popping the question.

Savage Garden’s, Truly, Madly, Deeply, Christina Perri’s, A Thousand Years, Elvis Presley’s Can’t Help Falling in Love, and the list goes on and on. Musicians, songwriters, and performers have always written about that emotion that pushes us forward, drives us to distraction, and makes us want to be better and do better for someone else.
