The first dance can be a hard one to pick, wading through the love songs available can cause severe toothache with the amount of saccharine out there. So today I’d like to recommend a number that can put a spring in your step with the sheer joy of it. ‘Hallelujah, I love her so’ by Ray Charles is an upbeat number originally written in 1949, but nowadays you’ll find it on the Ray Charles Anthology, and also The Very Best of Ray Charles. Perfect for those of you with a great swing style, and hell, even if you’ve got no rhythm, this song will give you some, like it or not.
