More of the Best Cocktail Hour Songs [VIDEO]

The cocktail hour is a time to prime the wedding crowd with great things to come. It’s a rare time when One Republic fits perfectly with Frank Sinatra, when the sounds of Bruno Mars mingle melodically with Smokey Robinson. The cocktail hour is about lovey dove dove music played at a medium to brisk tempo.

Beware the ‘too slow’ love song.

I know Love Me Tender is a great song. It also will put some folks to sleep. If the couple requests the super slow ballads, I’ll play them, but I always take care to make sure I prepare people for the dance party to come.

I’ve published a great cocktail hour list before, these are some additions.

Here’s Something in the Way She Moves by James Taylor, and this is about as slow as I’ll go…and for some crowds I even think it is too slow. But it is such a great song!

Forever Young – Rod Stewart
Better Together – Jack Johnson
Parachute – Ingrid Michaelson
Crash Into Me – Dave Matthews
I Love You Always Forever – Donna Lewis

Beautiful Day – U2
I Won’t Give Up – Jason Mraz
I’ve Got the World On A String – Frank Sinatra
Just the Way You Are – Billy Joel
Hold on Loosely – .38 Special
Nothin’ On You – Bruno Mars feat. B.O.B.
