Best first dance wedding song?

What's a really slow and romantic wedding song? I really don't want suggestions about songs that are commonly used. Something out of the ordinary with a lot of meaning. I'm thinking along the lines of Dave Matthews, but some of his love songs are too fast to be a song to dance to at my wedding. I'm not getting married soon, but it would be interesting to see what others think is a good song for a first dance.

    Ours is going to be can I have this dance its from high school musical, I know kind of weird, but were only dancing to a certian spot where the words just sounded really loving and perfect to us. "its like catching lighting the chances of finding someone like you... your one in a million the chances of feeling the way i do... And with every step together we just keep on getting better... Thats the only part we are having and we are starting and ending with a religious song. me and my Fiance took my neices to see it and when we both heard the song we looked at each other and kind of new it was what we wanted out first song to say.

    I think Van Morrison's "Into the Mystic" is a wonderful first dance song. Go check it out if you haven't heard it...the lyrics are super romantic. Two friends of mine used it a couple of years ago at their wedding (darnit...I swear it was my idea first!) and it was perfect.

    I agree with Blah (lol) I'm getting married in april and we are using "I dont wanna miss a thing" by aerosmith. its nice and romantic and a very nice slow song, it says alot in the song as well.

    My fiance and I haven't decided for sure, but we're considering "Wonderful Tonight" by Eric Clapton. But I also like "Don't want to miss a thing" by Aerosmith.
