Cause it's a beautiful night,
we're looking for something dumb to do
Hey baby, I think I wanna marry you
Is it the look in your eyes
or is it this dancing juice
Who cares baby,
I think I wanna marry you— Bruno Mars (Marry You)
1. "Marry You" by Bruno Mars
Artist: Bruno Mars
Album: Doo-Wops & Hooligans
Songwriters: Bruno Mars; Philip Lawrence; Ari Levine
Label: Elektra; Warner
Marry You is one of Bruno Mars most loved creations. Mars is known not just for his amazing voice but also for his incredible talent in writing songs. This particular one is a fun upbeat song about asking a girl to marry him rather impulsively; talking about getting wasted, blowing cash and going straight to the little chapel on the boulevard. Sounds fun and a bit too hasty but who are we to judge, right? He might be really that in love to immediately marry her.
Promise me, You'll always be
Happy by my side, I promise to
Sing to you, When all the music dies
...And marry me
Today and everyday— Train (Marry Me)
2. "Marry Me" by Train
Album: Save Me, San Francisco
Songwriter: Pat Monahan
When I first heard this song, I knew it's gonna be one of my favorites. This song by Train has such a sweet and acoustic sound filled with romantic lyrics. It is about thinking of asking the girl in the coffee shop (probably the waitress according to the music video) to marry him and promising her your forever. It's like seeing someone for the first time and already knowing that she's going to be the one for you... if only you have the guts to tell her.
I'm gonna marry your princess
And make her my queen
She'll be the most beautiful bride
that I've ever seen
I can't wait to smile
When she walks down the isle
On the arm of her father
On the day that I marry your daughter— BRKN RBTZ (Marry Your Daughter)
3. "Marry Your Daughter" by BRKN RBTZ
Artist: BRKN RBTZ
Songwriters: Brian McKnight, Cole Mcknight & Brandon Barnes
As sons of the great singer Brian McKnight, these duo definitely live up to the expectations. This song may be the best of all marriage proposal songs ever made. It is about a guy talking to his lover's father and asking for her hand in marriage. It is super cute and so relatable especially if you're a dude trying to win the dad's heart. The song may sound super cheesy but there's no better way of expressing your love than giving respect to your love one's family. Every girl would swoon knowing that her lover would bravely stand in front of her dad and tell him how much he loves her. What a beautiful thing it is.
Can I have your daughter
for the rest of my life?
Say yes, say yes
'cause I need to know
You say I'll never get
your blessin' till the day I die
"Tough luck, my friend,
but no still means no!"— Magic! (Rude)
4. "Rude" by Magic!
Album: Don't Kill the Magic
Songwriters: Alex Tanas, Ben Spivak, Mark Pellizzer, Adam Messinger & Nasri Atweh
Label: Sony Music & RCA Records
This is an upbeat, reggae sounding track by the band Magic!, about a guy who was rejected by the father of his fiance. It's one of the harsh realities of getting married. Sometimes, the parents of your beloved don't like you for their child and that would really suck. This song expresses his feelings about how he feels he is rude by saying no, but even so, he's still going to marry her anyway. Because you got to follow your heart, right?
A hundred and five is the number
that comes to my head
When I think of all the years
I want to be with you
Wake up every morning
with you in my bed
That's precisely what I plan to do— Jason Derulo (Marry Me)
5. Marry Me by Jason Derulo
Artist: Jason Derulo
Songwriters: Jason Derulo, Marlin "Hookman" Bonds, Jonas Jeberg & Andy Marvel
This is one sweet song by Jason Derulo. It is about a guy proposing his love to a girl and telling her that sometime soon, he would ask her to marry him and give her the best in the world. It was released 2013 when he and Jordan Sparks were still dating. She is actually the main muse of the music video of this song which made everyone ask when they would finally tie the knot. Unfortunately, they eventually broke up and Jordin is now married to another man. Well, maybe they weren't really fated for each other. But still, this song would still get you right into the feels.
