    Metal songs (ballads?) for a wedding?

    by X-Thor » Fri Nov 09, 2012 12:33 pm

    OK, so a cousin is getting married next year, and his fiancée told him he could pick the song they'd dance to. He's asked for my advice, so I'm trying to recommend as many metal/hard rock songs as possible. So far, I'm leaning towards Gotthard's One Life, One Soul, but I' not totally convinced. I'd appreciate suggestions :cool:

    Please note that as awesome as it'd be, I don't think he'll accept any "extreme" trve metal songs, so maybe keep it in the weenie (RAINBOWS!) department? :P

    Thank you!

    Is this now a "what's your favorite ballad ever?" thread?
    OKAY!

    This is the only ballad I can really think of that's not truly heartbreaking (i.e. -- stuff by Sonata Arctica and other power metal bands that tend to be sad as hell). This is either my favorite or second favorite ballad of all time depending on my mood; definitely one of the most beautiful "metal" songs ever written (Twilightning's "Painting The Blue Eyes" is the other contender):

    I recently did something like this for my brother's wedding with music to accompany a slide show. Some songs I used:

    Kamelot - Anthem http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C2aYDXn6whY Not a romantic song exactly. It's about Khan's son Gabriel and how he wants to be the best father he can be.
    Dream Theater - I Walk Beside You http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XFiOta2J9wM A song about always being there for a loved one
    Nightwish - Walking in the Air http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CnEmj-g32t8 Just a beautiful song
    Ayreon - Love http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uIT6vdjsqsc this point in the album is the main character reminiscing about meeting his wife and his emotions telling him to learn from the past with his father
    Scorpions - Wind of Change http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rMUX_4B-Hr4 I personally just love this song
    Hammerfall - Dreams Come True http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zpG8eq_W ... re=related
    Motley Crue - Without You http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P3QhVeHr-gM

    I found when searching for metal ballads a lot of the songs I initially thought were good to use were actually all about bad break ups. Most of the ones by Epica are not as happy as I had initially thought

    Blind Guardian - Maiden And the Minstrel Knight http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0zSONEoJv18 I think someone on the forum mentioned that they used this song.

    Another suggestion: Kamelot - Serenade http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pMTbBllPjJs

    Thought of these two oldies right away:
    UFO: Love to Love (from Lights Out, 1977)
    http://youtu.be/hIBhwWbviFw
    Scorpions: Always Somewhere (Lovedrive, 1979)
    http://youtu.be/NYG7WvME8FI

    And there was a thread a while back started by Rob's gf Tigerfish re "romantic" or otherwise related songs - here' was my post below and here was the thread: viewtopic.php?f=3&t=2699&hilit=Tigerfish+beginner - a lot probably is not "wedding appropriate" ;) - but, oh - what the hell - it's Friday! :shred:
    Laura wrote:Hi again Tigerfish! 

    This is a great thread you started and it got me thinking about a lot of things.  To begin, I generally do *not* associate love/romantic songs with metal music....at least the majority of the metal bands I listen to because relatively few use love, romance, and/or sex as lyrical content (especially those in my Barge wishlist sig :beerhorns: :deathmetal: :lol: ). That is why I am now going to retract what I said on an earlier post that there are *many* love songs by my favorite metal bands (which are majority folk and black with some progressive, industrial, death & symphonic thrown in) - because it turns out there just aren't that many after all that I could come up with - I think that is why I ended up throwing in a lot of 70s classic soft and hard rock in my long list on the previous page. :P   I did manage to come up with a few more of my favorite metal bands though that have some songs having to do with love, relationships, and so on. The funny thing is though - many of the bands I've included so far here and before (especially Nightwish, Apocalyptica, HIM, Ooomph!, and even Riverside, Pain of Salvation, & Tiamat to some extent) - I don't really think of as very "metal" to begin with. (but I still am crazy about them nonetheless)

    Riverside: Conceiving You (Live at the Paradiso)
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B4IbqFZy ... ata_player

    Therion: Eternal Sophia 
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7DeqCOlI ... ata_player

    Agalloch: A Desolation Song (one of the bleakest "lost love" type songs, but which I find oddly beautiful)
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dQ8cIn8s ... ata_player

    Ooomph!!: Traumst Du (this video cracks me up - love it - especially the lead singer Dero ;) )
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FsbivRpEiS4

    Nevermore: The Heart Collector 
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5cqaXTek ... ata_player

    Apocalyptica - I can understand why some people - especially Stach and others here - might consider 3 guys playing the cello *very* un-metal :lol: - I love these guys though - have all their albums and have seen them live - awesome!
    Bittersweet (featuring Ville Valo & Lauri Ylonen) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BiNipufN18w

    HIM - I'm a very un-apologetic HIM and Ville Valo fan :P - haha, and know lots of folks probably loathe him. :lol: :lol: HIM has some of my favorite songs & videos - I have a DVD that has many of the best ones including some below. This is really more pop music in my view, but I love it. Ville calls it "love metal." :roll: :P
    In Joy and Sorrow: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FVcfCHmo ... ure=relmfu
    Wicked Game: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pBW--bgyezg
    Right Here in My Arms: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-SQGJ0rfIEk
    The Funeral of Hearts: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PMD1k16b ... ure=relmfu
    Gone With the Sin: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ifwf8RrU-94 (beautiful, beautiful, beautiful imo)

    ........and now for my favorite HIM video and one of my very favorite videos period....drum roll :lol: ...
    Join Me in Death!: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1V4AscLidWg
    (damn - I could watch and post HIM and Ville Valo links all day - I better stop now :oops: :lol: )

    And, one more from the 70s and which actually has my favorite relationship lyrics ever written!
    Queen: You're My Best Friend

    Just realized I posted a lot of other stuff on Tigerfish's thread from Opeth (Face of Melinda) and many others - anyway, you may want to check out the thread - lots of good (and funny) stuff there from all the forum regulars. :lol:

    The more I think about it, I think Queen's You're My Best Friend would be awesome at a wedding.

    my favorite suggestion so far: Scorpions - Always Somewhere

    the first song that came to my mind was Opeth - Soldier of Fortune, because that's what my friends played at their wedding a few months ago
    http://youtu.be/WWPCxdtIlR8
    or if you prefer the original version from Deep Purple
    http://youtu.be/i_4GVm9adaU
    wishlist '20:
    Axxis - Blind Guardian - Circus Maximus - Doro - Edguy - Frozen Crown - Heavens Gate - Magnum - Opeth - Pretty Maids - Ravenous - Satan - Shadowpath - Silex - Skyclad - Steel Attack - Viathyn - Voyager - Wuthering Heights - 4th Dimension

    I once had a co-worker who actual wedding song was Bon Jovi’s “Never Say Goodbye”

    It’s a good bet they are not married anymore for he always hated the line “you lost more than that in my back seat, baby”. What would you do as you walk down the aisle to the alter on your wedding day while those words are blasting through the sound system. LOL. :lol: ;)

    Great thread. I love posting favorite songs, especially ballads. But it's pretty tough to separate the break up songs, because there are many good ballads with break up lyrics like

    Axel Rudi Pell - All the rest of my life

    ARP got plenty of great ballads but unfortunately most of them about breaking up. But maybe you like one of those:

    - Silent angel
    - Your life (one of my all time favorites)

    Here some more:

    - Crucified Barbara - Count me in (it's very cheesy but I think there's no "too cheesy" for a wedding ;) )
    - Doro/Warlock - Für immer (this song is reserved for my wedding :mrgreen:)
    - Edenbridge - Take me back
    - Foreigner - Waiting for a girl like you (not metal but one of my 3 all time favorite ballads)
    - Gotthard - What I like
    - W.A.S.P. - Hold on to my heart
    - Whitesnake - All I want all I need

    And if you don't find the right song there's always a way out with "Metallica - Nothing else matters" :cool:
