There are many classic and modern anniversary songs. From Celine Dion’s “Here and Now” to the boy band 98 Degrees’ “Hall of Fame,” the list is endless. Here are some suggestions if you’re looking for a song to sing to your significant other. We’ve also included songs from iconic singers like Diana Ross and Lionel Richie.
Celine Dion’s “Here and Now”
“Here and Now” is a song about love, and Celine Dion’s cover is an ode to marriage and anniversary celebrations. It is a classic, and it carries a poignancy that makes it a perfect anniversary song. While most of the contributors to the song chose safe canonical works, Wilson took a risk by picking a song that some critics might consider uncool. Nevertheless, Wilson shows his sincerity and treats the singer with respect.
Whether you’re celebrating your first or 50th anniversary, many romantic songs will make you feel special. The iconic Celine Dion song, “Here and Now,” has a timeless message and is arguably the world’s best-known love song. You might also like Luther Vandross’ “Here and Now,” a classic 1989 hit that combines the smoothest voice in history with an affecting message. The power ballad, “You,” by Jesse Powell, is another beautiful anniversary song.
