It completely took me by surprise when I saw the beautiful song “I Never” featured on many first dance wedding song lists.
Rilo Kiley released “More Adventurous” in 2007, their third album. It was named one of the best albums of the year and obviously features the hit single “I Never”. It is a true pleasure to place them on this list.

In 2011, Beyonce performed “Love on Top” at the MTV Music Awards. She opened her performance by saying “Tonight I want you to stand up on your feet, I want you to feel the love that’s growing inside of me”. This was said and meant to what she revealed at the end.
