5 romantic rock songs for dancing with your SO

journey-openarmsEvery couple dances. Either the guy loves it or he doesn’t, but every couple dances, because every girl wants to dance with her significant other. Dancing will always be one of the most romantic expressions of affection, even if the guy can’t dance, and even if you’re dancing to some sappy pop song or Frank Sinatra. Don’t get me wrong, Sinatra is absolutely fantastic, but for all the rock nerds out there, what about finding some romantic rock ‘n’ roll for hitting the dance floor? Here we introduce five of the top rock songs for serenading, waltzing, and two-stepping with your heart’s desire in your arms.

Not only is the Goo Goo Dolls’ hit single quite the angsty love song, it has a great beat for slow dancing. The melody swells and slows to the rhythm of a slow dance, so this is definitely one for your dancing playlist.

2. You And Me, Lifehouse

This Lifehouse classic is one of the sweetest ballads in rock, also perfect for a slow dance with your significant other. What’s better than waltzing to the words, “I can’t keep my eyes off of you…there’s something about you now, everything she does is beautiful, everything she does is right”?

3. Fooled Around And Fell In Love, Elvin Bishop

If you’re the nerdy type, you might recognize this crooner from Marvel’s 2014 film Guardians of the Galaxy. Elvin Bishop’s tongue-in-cheek story of a playboy finally falling in love is a sure charmer for most dancing couples.

4. Is This Love, Whitesnake

David Coverdale’s impassioned cry, “Is this love that I’m feeling? Is this the love that I’ve been searching for?” resonates with every individual involved in a budding romance. Recommended for those moving to the music with someone whom they think just might be the one.

5. Open Arms, Journey

No declaration of love has ever been so perfectly matched with a soaring waltz than Journey’s “Open Arms.” This song is perfect for dancing novices and experienced waltzers alike, but it’s the poignant piano, dramatic build, and sincere words, “So here I am / with open arms / hoping you’ll see / what your love means to me / open arms.”
