So I'm the music head for this year's prom committee, and I'm looking for a few things in this year's slow song list:
1) Overall build up (from less emotional songs to very intimate songs)
2) A rock element (getting sick of the dances with the slow dance song list littered with pure pop songs. I'm looking for some power ballads here. more recent ones.)
3) Songs with good build up (such as The Airborne Toxic Event - Sometime Around Midnight, or The Click Five - Empty)

Here's what i have so far (in playing order, for the emotional buildup part)

Boys Like Girls - Thunder (3:57)
Bullet For My Valentine - Forever And Always (Acoustic) (4:17)
My Chemical Romance - Disenchanted (4:55)
The Click Five - Empty (4:01)
Nickelback - Never Gonna Be Alone (3:47)
Avenged Sevenfold - Dear God (6:34)

I still have a lot of songs to go, but I'm keeping Dear God as a closer, so if you guys can suggest any songs that fit in this list, to be put anywhere but the last song, please help. And please keep in mind that these are slow dance songs...

many thanks, Pit.

I'm sure he naturally assumed we knew it would be there

Also you need some dancey songs which are a bit faster, not techno but you get my drift


i know what you mean, but like i said, i'm currently working on the slow songs only for now. the fast songs arent exactly my job, since i'm one of the two song committee heads.

Don't close with Dear God. Close with a song everybody knows.

Play some new pop songs that everyone will enjoy. Avenged sevenfold at a prom? Really?



This. I'm sorry if you're some kind of rock supremacist, but the general population prefers hip hop and pop songs they recognize and can sing along to. Go with what they'll want to hear, not with what you want to play.

doesn't matter, their songs aren't prom worthy (not saying they suck, just doesn't work)

You need songs that people dance to.

you've got a point. i'm willing to move it away from closer, but i don't want to take it off. my school is in desperate need of variety, because we've been known to use the same songs year after year, for nearly 10 dances in a row. its ridiculous.

Can't dance to tech death. Let's have us some breakdowns and slams eh? Devourment would be great.

Your call bro; I have nothing against those bands but if I showed up at my prom and I heard those tunes come on, I know the look everyone around me would be giving each other. However, perhaps the customs and general population are different at your school, in which case what do I know. Good Luck!
#32
I agree with everyone saying you can't play avenged sevenfold and bullet for my valentine. Forever and Always is one of my least favorite bullet songs and i think dear god is one of avengeds worst sellout songs(its borderline country.) I think you should maybe some nostalgia type songs or songs that people know. Everyone doesn't want to listen to metal or metalcore even if they're soft songs.

Dont stop believin would make an epic buildup my mates band plays it as their last song and always gets the crowd going.

I say for dancey songs uhm, Snow Patrol's You're All I Have?

Slow songs... Chasing Cars - Snow Patrol
In You Atmosphere - John Mayer
#36
EDIT: You can't close with Don't Stop Believin'! It just wouldn't be right. You need to use it as your second to last song, like Children of Bodom do. It's a great song, but you need to close on a stronger note.

Okay:
Queen - Let Us Cling Together (Teo Torriatte)
Queen - The Game
Queen - The Dreamer's Ball
Queen - Love Of My Life
Queen - You Take My Breath Away
Queen - Save Me

If you're looking for classic slow songs, you need Forever Young by Alphaville.

It's pretty much a must at anyone's prom.
