Float On - Modest Mouse

"Float On," a popular song off the fourth Modest Mouse album, "Good News for People Who Love Bad News," is a spunky and inspirational song about maintaining a positive outlook on life.

When it debuted in 2004, it climbed to No. 1 on the Billboard Modern Rock Tracks chart and quickly became the band's most well-known song. In 2009, Rolling Stone named "Float On" the 39th greatest song of the 2000s. Its overall message to "float on" even if "things get heavy" should be every bride and groom's mantra. The opening drum beat and striking guitar chords will highlight your joyous exit down the aisle, hand in hand, as a newly married couple.
