For those who want their wedding to evoke a classic and timeless feeling, it’s hard to go wrong with a first dance song from the 1960s. Far from feeling outdated, many of these tunes remain popular fifty years after their release. “At Last” by Etta James has consistently topped lists of most popular wedding songs. While some couples might consider this a reason to steer away from these traditional numbers, others choose to embrace the choice. After all, “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it,” right?
