WEDDING SONGS PART 4: 2021

Let’s look back to the year where weddings started to find their resurgence post extreme lockdowns. It was the year of resilience. It was a year where media both social and traditional found ways to cause division for profit yet humanity still found a way to look to love as a fortress. In isolation we looked for and found connection. 


2021 may not be in a position to trump 1969’s “Summer of Love” but it was a year where many artists used the forced lockdowns to create some great tracks. So what love songs came out of that year? Are any of the high standard that you are setting for your big day? Or your friend/family member’s big day if you are part of their planning team. Sure, there is a lot of rubbish music out there but always has been and like all art, music is subjective. Here’s a strong list that is arguable depending on your taste but definitely worth considering.

 

“Head Over Heels” – Dua Lipa

If you’re after a song to bounce down the aisle to, or as the first “all in” dance of the night, the current “Queen of Bangers” has this blatant love message track to do it for you.

“Easy on Me” – Adele

Adele at a 2021 comeback after a 5-year chill. “Easy On Me,” was the first single from her new album, 30. It won’t work for everyone as this isn’t a “I love you – you love me” song but is more reflective and imploring. This could work for anyone wanting to say to their other half “I’m not all there, I’m finding my way. Care for me.” 

“When You’re Home” – Tyler Shaw

“When you’re home I’m home.” Nice. Enough said.

“Take Me Now” – Cult Romance

Like all art you can stand back and interpret what you hear or see just about anyway you like but I imagine this song, the chorus especially with its soaring and urgent call to “take me now!” making for a perfect connection between 2 sets of embracing eyes, locking into each other from the opposite ends of the petal strewn aisle.  

“Ya’aburnee” – Halsey

“Ya’aburnee” means “you bury me” in Arabic. Before you go dark consider the higher meaning. It essentially is saying “I can’t live without you so I hope I go first.”  The lyrics to this light, quirky love song are perfect wedding fodder. “Love is just a currency, so take my pockets, take me home, take my life, and take my soul. Wrap me in a wedding ring. You know I swear I’d give you anything.”

“Bad Habits” – Ed Sheeran 

The king of millennium wedding songs is back and while it may not ooze with the syrup we get from his other wedding stalwarts such as “Perfect” or “Thinking Out Loud” it’s still a strong entry into his love song canon.

“Perfect Pain” – Mayan Fox

A gorgeous chill-vibe release from the exotic pop rockers which speaks to the truth that everyone in a relationship understands, “love can be painful, but worth it.” 

“Leave the Door Open” – Silk Sonic

The Bruno Mars and Anderson .Paak project Silk Sonic provides us with this dynamite groove that takes the world back to love as seen through the eyes of 70s and 80s R&B/Soul faves like Earth, Wind & Fire, Stevie Wonder or the Commodores. 

“Love Story” – Taylor Swift 

Although released in her early years, she rerecorded it after a long and drawn-out battle with her record label. We won’t get into that but seeing as it was a fresh recording for 2021, we can include this modern classic country/pop love song. Considering there would now be a few who were teens/pre-teens when this first came out in 2008, who may now be considering marriage, this could have sentimental magnetism that makes it a popular wedding song choice over the next couple of years or so. 

“Anyone” – Justin Beiber

He may have had a life of big ups and massive downs in his life within and without music, but “the Beibs” has really given us what could become a wedding classic with this song. The fact that he wrote it for his wife nails the connection to marriage.
