Profound in their contexts and heartwarming in their audible presence, rock songs about love can be amongst the best things to happen at your wedding. We’ve taken the pains to find for you five of the best rock ballads that can be played at your wedding – keep on ‘marrying’ in the free world:
1.Firehouse – You Are My Religion
For a song from a band that’s mostly known for their rock numbers devoted to love, ‘You Are My Religion’ comes as no surprise. On this wedding rock favorite, Firehouse takes their guitar + mush-quotient to a very adorable level. How else can you explain lyrics as charming as this; “You’ve come and saved me, For all eternity, In the name of the Father and the Son, You are my religion….”
2. Aerosmith – I Don’t Want To Miss A Thing
A radio-regular and a rock classic, no wedding can be complete without this heartfelt ballad from Aerosmith’s tuneful cellars. What makes this song so special is that you don’t necessarily need to be a fan of rock music to fall in love with it. Universal in its appeal and strong in its composition, ‘I Don’t Want To Miss A Thing’ is arguably one of Aerosmith’s most memorable hits – don’t not play it at your wedding.
3. Bread – Baby I’m A Want You
Not too many people may have heard this Bread hit, nonetheless, it’s a still a great song. Musically, it’s pleasing to the ears and lyrically it’s as honest as it gets. Slightly ambient and excessively enjoyable, ‘Baby I’m A Want You’ is a sweet-sounding delight all the way.
4. Eagles – Love Will Keep Us Alive
Most people only know the Eagles as a synonym for ‘Hotel California’, but for a true fan of the iconic band, there’s so much more to their music. In this case, ‘Love Will Keep Us Alive’, serves as a prime example. Crisp in its sounding and melodic in its maneuvers, this song is really a glass of cooled wine on a hot summer afternoon – give in to its thrills on the day of your nuptials.
5. Mr. Big – Nothing But Love
Known for their hard-hitting riffs and musical dexterity, Mr. Big’s ‘Nothing But Love’ is a toned-down surprise for fans of the band and rock music in general. Released when the band was in its prime and taken from their hit album ‘Bump Ahead’, this song is everything you’d look for in a rock number. Soft at parts and loveably loud when required – don’t give this one a miss.
