Are looking for current songs for your wedding and/or wedding reception. Be sure to check out VH1’s list below of the best music videos of 2010. The official release is on the VH1 blog.
2010 Best Music Videos
Train – Hey Soul Sister. This is a great pop rock song released in August 2009 but stayed strong in 2010. Hey Soul Sister has a make you feel good rhythm and has a catchy tune.
The Script – Breakeven. A great pop rock song but this song is about break-up. Therefore, not a good theme for weddings.
Katy Perry feat. Snoop Dogg – California Gurls. This is a great dance tune that will fill the dance floor. California Gurls is a beach themed song but may offend girls from New York?
Adam Lambert – Whataya Want From Me (Concept). The runner-up winner on American Idol in 2009 stays in the heart of Americans in 2010. Depending on the crowd the song could fill the dance floor with this song.
Lady Gaga – Bad Romance. The theme of Bad Romance is not for weddings but will guarantee to fill the dance floor with this dance hit.
Lady Antebellum – Need You Now. “Lady Ant” makes the crossover from country to pop stars. A great slower tempo song about how we need someone after a night of partying.
Usher feat. Will.iam – OMG. OMG is a great R&B dance tune that will fill the dance floor.
Eminem feat. Rihanna – Love The Way You Lie. This is one of my favorite songs of 2010 with true feeling but not fitting for weddings.
P!nk – Raise Your Glass. We have another anthem by P!nk with raise your glass. Even though it has varied tempo, should get guests in the party mood. You can also use this song as a toast song during a wedding reception.
Bruno Mars – Just The Way You Are. This song has a great beat and theme. Perfect for any wedding. If you want an up-tempo first dance song, this may be your song. Be sure to check out the video of this song too. It would rank as our #1.
Ke$ha – Tik Tok. One of the best dance songs of 2010. Tik Tok is a great way to get the party started.
B.O.B. feat. Hayley Williams – Airplanes. Another song full of emotion that we like the theme. To be played at weddings depends on what guests are dancing to.
Rihanna – Only Girl In the World. Rihanna releases another dance hit sure to fill wedding reception dance floors. The bride is the only girl in the world on her big day.
Michael Buble – Haven’t Met You Yet. We really like Michael Buble but the song theme is how you haven’t met the right person yet. Not a great wedding theme but maybe for all the single people.
Taylor Swift – Mine. This pop country mega superstar scores another hit with Mine. This mid-tempo song may be difficult to dance to but has the right wedding theme.
Jay-Z & Alicia Keys – Empire State of Mind. A true theme for New York City. May not be appropriate for many weddings but definitely in NYC.
Christina Perri – Jar of Hearts. This is a beautiful slow song but the theme is not appropriate for weddings. Collecting your jar of hearts, tearing love apart – No.
Maroon 5 – Misery. Misery is another song to leave off wedding play lists. Misery, enough said.
John Mayer – Heartbreak Warfare. This is not a recommended wedding song. This song is about the pain of love.
Katy Perry – Firework. This is a make you feel good song. However, with it’s mixed tempo makes it hard to dance to. If you want it played at your reception, we recommend looking for dance remixes.
Paramore – The Only Exception. This is a romantic love song. Perfect for any slow song play list for weddings.
Drake – Find Your Love. If you want a mid-tempo R&B song with a good groove for your wedding, this is it. However, the tempo may keep some people off the dance floor.
Daughtry – September. Another American Idol star rocks on this ballad. For the rock and roll fan, this is a great current hit to fill dance floors.
Jason Derulo – In My Head. A great R&B dance tune. This song can get many generations on the dance floor.
Travie McCoy feat. Bruno Mars – Billionaire. Yes, everyone wants to be rich. This song has a Caribbean vibe – if that’s the theme of your wedding, this song is perfect.
Sara Bareilles – King of Anything. This song has a good beat but not the appropriate theme for a wedding.
Mumford & Sons – Little Lion Man. Another song with much emotion. The song theme and musical accompaniment is not your stereotypical wedding song.
Linkin Park – Waiting For The End. I don’t need to tell you this is not a wedding song. However, the video and song are totally awesome and should be higher on the list by VH1.
Train – If It’s Love. Train keeps moving the hearts of many. This song theme fits in with weddings. If it is going to fill the dance floor depends on the guests. Otherwise, If It’s Love makes a great background song.
Usher feat. Pitbull – DJ Got US Falling In Love. One of the best dance songs for wedding receptions with the perfect theme. Dance like it’s the last night of your life!
Lady Gaga feat Beyonce – Telephone. Two blockbuster stars collaborate on Telephone. A dance song to keep guests on the dance floor – if the telephones stop ringing.
Kings of Leon – Radioactive. We really like K.O.L. but this rock song is not a great wedding song.
Adam Lambert – If I Had You. This is a good dance song by Adam. The only problem with this song is its intermittent tempo.
Mike Posner – Cooler Than Me. This is a great dance song. You can even hand out sunglasses, which would make a great prop to this song.
Kid Rock – Born Free. A true make you feel good American song. This song makes a great crossover between rock and country.
Eminem – Not Afraid. Eminem is arguably one of the most influential music artists the last decade. This song is a youth anthem but not fitting for weddings.
Jack Johnson – At or With Me. We really like Jack but this of course is not a wedding themed song.
Sugarland – Stuck Like Glue. This country song is a wedding themed song that makes you feel good with a great rhythm. Being a mid-tempo song, it may be hard for some to dance to.
Taio Cruz feat. Ludacris – Break Your Heart. Our last dance song on the list will also fill dance floors. However, the song is about how he’s only going to break your heart.
Muse – Resistance. A U2 type video but not made for weddings.
