CD of first dance?

Anyone have an idea of a CD love song for a first dance. It must be slow so they can dance to it according to DD. Her fiance likes the tempo of "At Last," but she feels it is too sad. Any suggestions for a slow dance CD that is more sunny and positive about love?

One of my favorite current (or semi-current) love songs is Van Morrison's "Have I Told You Lately That I Love You." (Don't even bother with Rod Stewart's - Van wrote it, and his version is *far* better.)

For couples who were first friends and then became romantically involved, I like "I Could Write a Book," both the Frank Sinatra and the Harry Connick Jr. versions. (I've posted a link to the lyrics, in case you haven't heard the song.)

"What a Wonderful World" is maybe over-used, but still a terrific song. Or how about "It Had to be You."

Here is a link that might be useful: I could write a book

"At Last" is a very popular wedding song. I am surprised that DD finds the lyrics to be sad. Any song by Frank Sinatra, Louis Armstrong, Nat King Cole, or some of the other great standards make excellent first dance songs.

Dh and I danced to Don Henley's "Taking You Home."

does she like country music? i was going to use allison krauss's 'when you say nothing at all' but we decided to go with a song that means a little more to the both of us. so it's back to the drawing board. allison krauss isn't the original artist but i like her version better than the other guy...
