Breaking The First Dance Mold | “Cinema” By Benny Benassi

Wedding First Dance: "Cinema" By Benny Benassi (Featuring Gary Go)

Every so often I am reminded of, or stumble across, a song that begs the question of why it has not received more “wedding play,” specifically for certain formal dances. I posted an article several weeks ago about “Dela” by Johnny Clegg, a fun song from 1990 that explores the essence of love in a joyful way and offers Bride & Grooms an opportunity to step out of the traditional, often over played, romantic ballads typically used as a wedding first dance song.

Since that article was published, I’ve helped celebrate the happiness of a number of imaginative couples who produced unforgettable moments by selecting fun, lesser played songs that defy the traditional fare of a wedding First Dance. If your anything like them, searching for a song that is not only different but breaks the mold of slow, romantic and predictable, and would, instead, like to celebrate the joy and happiness of your new life together with one that exudes those very elements…here is another possibility that has wedding First Dance potential.

The song is titled “Cinema” by Benny Benassi (featuring Gary Go). “Cinema” was released on the album “Electroman” in March, 2011 and has enjoyed extraordinary success on YouTube with millions of views. Visitors have watched one remix of “Cinema” over 30 million times.

The bulk of Benny Benassi’s popularity and music chart fame as a DJ & recording artist is centered overseas. Although, anyone in the States who is a fan of the “electro, techno” genres will also be familiar with his name and his work. According to Benassi’s website “Hailing from Reggio Emilia, Italy, Benny Benassi rose to worldwide fame with the 2002 release of his enormous chart-topping hit single “Satisfaction.” It was with that tune that he initiated a new genre of music dubbed as Electro, which earned him the crown ‘Godfather of Electro.'”

Genre aside, “Cinema” is a fun, up-tempo love song that deserves a listen at some point during the creative process, especially if you’re focused on finding a wedding First Dance song that is out of the norm and celebrates your love for one another in a joyful manner. “Cinema” may be considered out of the mainstream, but not by much, and the beat and melody are contagious.

Check out the video and lyrics of Benny Benassi’s “Cinema” that follow. Even if you find it’s not right for your wedding First Dance, the sentiment of the song will make you smile.

Cinema” Lyrics by Benny Benassi (Featuring Gary Go)

I could watch you for a lifetime
You’re my favourite movie
A thousand endings
You mean everything to me
I never know what’s comin’
Forever fascinated
Hope you don’t stop runnin’
To me ’cause I’ll always be waitin’

You are my cinema
I could watch you forever
Action thriller
I could watch you forever
You are my cinema
A Hollywood treasure
Love you just the way you are
My cinema my cinema
A cinema a cinema a cinema a cinema

Stars spell out your name
Like in a science fiction drama
Romance growing
Like a flower in the summer
You always keep me guessin’
Forever my wonder
Hope you start undressin’
All my dreams and take me under

You are my cinema
I could watch you forever
Action thriller
I could watch you forever
You are my cinema
A Hollywood treasure
Love you just the way you are
My cinema my cinema
A cinema a cinema a cinema a cinemaa

Never know what movie you’re playin’
Never know what movie you’re playin’
Never know what movie you’re playin’
Never know never know never know

You are my cinema
I could watch you forever
Action thriller
I could watch you forever
You are my cinema
A Hollywood treasure
Love you just the way you are
My cinema my cinema
A cinema a cinema a cinema a cinemaa
