Slow songs for prom 2009.
The prom is a very important time. The music played and times shared provide lasting memories. Here are some songs that are usually pretty popular. The current prom committee has already picked the entire list.
This review will be for the top ten slow songs for the prom season of 2009. One thing you must mention though is that sometimes going a little old school can go a long way. I have chaperoned a few proms and attended one in my day. Every one I was at has quite a bit of the old classics represented in the DJ’s selection.
Some people think of it more than others, but the prom really marks the end of you childhood and growing up and being and adult next to graduation. Most people can still remember a song played at their senior prom. With diversity being so important in schools these days you will typically hear a variety of music at proms. What the kids like is also important. Geography can play a part in song selection. A small school in rural Mississippi will probably have a different play list than a prom at a school in Los Angeles.
This is a pretty diverse list, but our students tend to have diverse tastes. I notice most of the songs the kids usually have are not necessarily the newer songs, but timeless classics
Here are some of the more popular slow songs our prom committee has been throwing around this year in no particular order.
- I will always love you- Whitney Houston (Dolly Parton wrote it, but does not get as much air play). This is really not a love song per say, but lots of the kids like it and usual it is a pretty good slow dance song. They played this at my prom. More than a couple guys from my football team dedicated this song to get out of trouble for some of the pre-prom stunts we pulled.
- Wonderful Tonight- Eric Clapton. Just about everyone knows that signature guitar riff when they hear it. Another very good one to dance to. Several proms have had the song be their theme. I think 12 people I went to college with had this song as their theme song. All of them were from different high schools. This one makes lots of the ladies happy when their date dedicates it to them.
- Hey there Delilah- Plain white Ts. It is popular now and very good song to dance to. It’s about young love and trying to make things work.
- The end of the road-Boyz 2 men, they played this at my senior prom also. The song is not really as much a romantic song as the various cliques and sports teams like it. It is basically reminding us all that the majority of us will be going are own ways.
- Angel- Aerosmith. Good slow song that has a bit of rock in it. Nice love song that will usually get a dedication or two in it.
- Heaven-Bryan Adams. Great slow song to dance to. It has one of those sounds that people never tire of. A hit from the 80’s that the kids still like today.
- Your body is a wonderland- John Mayer. Another popular one. The kids enjoy it because it is one of the more racy ones we will let them have. I thought it was a mid speed song, but I find lots of kids like to dance slowly to this song.
- I can’t help falling in love with you-Elvis Presley. I am surprised that the kids still like this one, but it has been at the last three proms. It is a good song to dance to and gets a dedication.
- I cross my heart- George Strait. This is a great song about how much you love someone. It is usually popular with the kids that are country music fans among the student body.
- What a wonderful world-Louie Armstrong. This actually got popular after a chaperon requested it. He has a very funny voice, but the song is so truthful and good to dance to.
