Bryan Adams classic hit Everything I do (I do it for You) is the top choice as a first dance at weddings, a poll showed today.
A survey for Lloyds TSB ahead of Saturday’s royal wedding revealed the Canadian star was the first choice of 5% of newlyweds.
This was followed by the Carpenters’ Close to You (3.9%) with Louis Armstrong’s We Have all the Time in the World in third.
Rod Stewart’s rendition of Have I Told You Lately tied in fourth place with Elton John’s Your Song, and Robbie Williams’ She’s the One came in fifth.
Less conventional choices included Bat out of Hell, by Meatloaf, and the theme from Armageddon by Aerosmith.
Around 3% said they had no first dance at all, while a further 4% confessed they had forgotten which song was played.
Yasmin Hughes, head of the Lloyds TSB Note for Note programme, said: “This poll shows just how personal and emotional our musical choices are and demonstrates the important role music plays in all our lives.
“Clearly, our tastes vary wildly with even Meatloaf bringing a tear to the eye.”
Lloyds TSB recently launched Note for Note, a funding programme bringing music to young people across the country.
The programme is the first of its kind in Britain and is backed by leading players in the music industry and endorsed by Government.
Note for Note aims to inspire creativity and stimulate more interest among the nation’s young people by introducing them to music subsidised by the scheme.
A poll of 1,082 people was taken by Tickbox.net.
