Lonestar top wedding dance list

Robbie Williams
Third-placed Angels, by Robbie Williams, is also popular at funerals

The song Amazed by US band Lonestar has beaten Bryan Adams and Robbie Williams to top a list of the UK's most popular first wedding dance tunes in 2007.

UK wedding DJs voted for their top 10 wedding songs and the Performing Right Society then sorted the tracks by number of uses into the final chart.

Number two was Everything I Do, by Bryan Adams, followed by Robbie Williams hit Angels.

Amazed - the country outfit's biggest US hit - failed to reach the UK top 20.

DJs from the UK-disco.com agency voted to select the original 10.

Royalty payments

James Blunt made it into the chart at number four with his much-played song You're Beautiful, while Aerosmith's Don't Want To Miss A Thing came in at five.

Shania Twain was the only artist to appear in the list twice with Still The One, at six, and From This Moment On, at nine.

Seventh position went to Truly, Madly, Deeply, by Savage Garden, while Van Morrison's classic Have I Told You Lately reached number eight.

Rounding off the list at ten was Whitney Houston's I Will Always Love You.

Performing Right Society is the body responsible for ensuring that composers, songwriters and music publishers are paid royalties when their songs are used.
