The most popular first dance song of 2023 is not necessarily the most important factor in choosing a song for a couple's first dance. What's more important is that the couple chooses a song that has personal significance and meaning to them, regardless of its popularity.
The first dance is a special moment in a couple's wedding and should reflect their relationship and love for each other. Choosing a song that is meaningful to the couple, even if it is not popular or trendy, will make the moment even more memorable and special.

In the liner notes of Africa Unite: The Singles Collection, Island Records boss Chris Blackwell wrote:
‘Is This Love’ is a great song and I was always very happy with Kaya, the album it came from. It had a very summery, carefree feel. When the album came out, several reviewers said he’d gone soft. But Bob was feeling great at that time and those songs reflected how he was feeling.
This song was dedicated to Bob’s wife, Rita.
