What's the BEST and most unique first dance song you've ever heard at a wedding?

I'm curious about some great first dance songs that aren't over-used. Tell me about the BEST (I know there are some great "crappiest/weirdest first dance songs" stories out there, but save em!) first dance song you heard. Thanks everyone! 10 points to the one that grabs me!

Update:

I thought I would add, just to throw it out there, that I'm definitely not looking for country songs or joke answers. Thanks!!!

    My husband and I danced to the song that Adam Sandler sang on the airplane in The Wedding Singer. It's really sweet and short, I'm not totally comfortable dancing with the world staring...

    My coworker got married last June. I wasn't able to attend but he played me the song that they danced to at their wedding the other day at work. They love Hawaii and they go like like every year on vacation and one year they saw this guy playing and bout his cd. His name is Israel Kamakawiwo and he sings this Hawaiian version of "Over the Rainbow". It is beautiful. Here is a link to his mySpace profile. I also found the song on Bear Share.

    I remember a wedding where the couple danced to "Keeper of the stars" by Tracy Byrd.

    I've always remembered that because the lyrics were so beautiful.

    My sister danced to "your the one that I want" from Grease. They did the choreography and everything. It was hysterical and so much more entertaining than watching two people slowly rock back and forth in a circle to an unending slow song.

    I would say "Love Shack" by the B-52's because I did hear that once at a reception. But honestly it would be "love stinks" but I have a twisted sense of humour.

    Angel Eyes by Jeff Healy was played at my wedding

    A soloist sang "When you say nothing at all" at our ceremony.

    My sister had a solist sing "You light up my life" at hers

    "Through the eyes of love"by melissa Manchester is a good one, too.
