Medieval/Renaissance-themed love songs?

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I am getting married next year and even though it's not something that absolutely has to be done, I thought it would be nice for our "first dance" song to be related somehow with our theme: medieval/renaissance/castles/knights, etc.

So far, we've come up with "Glory of Love" by Peter Cetera, but I want to explore all of my options.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated! Thanks much!!

Hi racingfan, Welcome to Songfacts :thumbsup:

how about "Scarborough Fair"?

maybe not S&G's Canticle version though, since that part (anti-war) might not fit to a wedding, but there are numerous other versions of that song :)

'numerous' implies plural

And the obvious...

"ROMEO AND JULIET" by Dire Straits

:bow: :bow: :bow: :bow:

It's the first one I thought of too, but I'm not so sure if you'd want that to be played at your wedding... it's a break-up song to me. The girl's moved on and poor Romeo's still pining for her :P

Thanks all for the suggestions. I still haven't quite found the perfect one, but there were some good listens in that list! Still open to ideas. All I really want is a soft ballad that deals with love and fairytale-ish imagery. Not sure if what I'm looking for exists...
