Radio Ga Ga
1984, The Works

You had your time, you had the power
You’ve yet to have your finest hour


I Want to Break Free
1984, The Works

I’ve fallen in love for the first time
And this time I know it’s for real
I’ve fallen in love, yeah
God knows, God knows I’ve fallen in love

If you are looking for a funny meaning to a first dance song, this should be your choice. You need to take life as it comes to play this song as your first dance.

Another One Bites The Dust
1980, The Game
Makes for a great grand entrance for Queen fans. The song signifies that the bride and groom are now unavailable.

Are you ready, hey, are you ready for this?
Are you hanging on the edge of your seat?
Out of the doorway the bullets rip
To the sound of the beat


Crazy Little Thing Called Love
1980, The Game
Love this song as an uptempo dance song for a-Rockin’ wedding reception.

There goes my baby
She knows how to rock ‘n’ roll
She drives me crazy


Don’t Stop Me Now
1978, Jazz

If you wanna have a good time
Just give me a call (alright)
Don’t stop me now


We are the Champions
1977, News of the World
Just for the meaning, you can incorporate into a wedding many different points such as the processional, grand entrance, and as the last dance.

We are the champions
No time for losers
‘Cause we are the champions
Of the world


Somebody To Love
1976, A Day at the Races
Another great sing-a-long song for those who can keep up with Freddy.

I ain’t gonna face no defeat
I just gotta get out of this prison cell
One day (someday) I’m gonna be free, Lord!
Find me somebody to love


You’re My Best Friend
1975, A Night at the Opera
Hands down the best wedding song released by Queen. The song can be incorporated into many different wedding events including parent dances, cake cutting, and first dance.

In rain or shine, you’ve stood by me girl
I’m happy at home (happy at home)
You’re my best friend


Love of my Life
1975, A Night at the Opera
Not your stereotypical love song but they do meet at the end. Our favorite lyrics from the song:

When I grow older, I will be there at your side, to remind you
How I still love you


Bohemian Rhapsody
1975, A Night at the Opera
What a great song for a sing-a-long – just as in the movie Wayne’s World.

Mama, ooh
Didn’t mean to make you cry
If I’m not back again this time tomorrow
Carry on, carry on


The March of The Black Queen
1974, Queen II
If you are a huge Queen fan and want a unique processional song, this is the song for you!

You’ve never seen nothing like it
No, never in your life
Like going up to heaven
And then coming back alive
Let me tell you all about it


Finally, select songs that are personal to you for your wedding. It is YOUR wedding. I remember going to the local bar growing up and listening to Fat Bottom Girls with friends. The song would make a great dedication to the groom’s friends from the groom and would fill the dance floor. Be sure to discuss with your DJ songs like this that have meaning and a great DJ will incorporate the song at the perfect moment.
