I don't know Sammy, that would kind of open up yourself up to possoble debate amongst a lot of people. I don't doubt but...

Please add me to the invitation list, cause if that's the first dance song, It'll be one he## of a reception!

Sorry Angel ~~ you asked a perfectly nice question, you desevre a perfectly nice answer. I think you guys need to listen to some stuff together, and pick something that has lyrics that mean something to you both. Don't worry too much if it's appropriate for your guests, or if it just sounds pretty. They will forget it by tomorrow, you two will have it for the rest of your lives. I think it's an important statement. :angel:

ok ~ i'll stop gushing now. ::

When my wife and I got married, we met in the middle of the dance floor, held each other close, gazed lovingly into one another's eyes, then Glenn Miller's "String of Pearls" kicked in and we started jitter-bugging. No one knew it was going to happen but us and the DJ. Brought the house down.

Just a suggestion.

My husband and I kind of did the same thing...we danced to "Pride and Joy" by SRV. Nobody expected us to dance to a fast song, but by the end, everyone was clapping along.

As for a wedding song that "stands out", I think most are overdone, so just pick any song that has meaning for both of you and not the "song of the moment" and you won't regret it later.

Our first dance was a song by Tom Waits called "Little Trip To Heaven (On the Wings of your Love)." A very romantic song off of the album Closing Time. If you have not heard Tom Waits sing before, you may want to listen to it together since he kinda has that drinks a lot, smokes a lot cocktail lounge singer voice that I love so much, but others are not so fond of. Here are the lyrics:

Little trip to heaven on the wings of your love

Banana moon is shining in the sky

I feel like I'm in heaven when you're with me

I know that I'm in heaven when you smile

Though we're stuck here on the ground

I got something that I've found, and it's you

I don't need to take no trip to outer space

All I have to do is look in your face

And before I know it I'm in orbit around you

Thanking my lucky stars that I found you

When I see your constellation, you're my inspiration

And it's you

You're my North Star when I'm lost and feeling blue

You're my sun that's breaking through, it's true

And all the other stars seem dim around you

I thank my lucky stars that I found you

When I see your smilin' face

I know nothing' gonna take your place

And it's you, and it's you, and it's you,

and it's you, and it's you, and it's you

Scoobidy do wah....

How about "At Last" by Etta James? It's a little less cheesy than the first dance I've heard at some weddings.

(like Can't Fight This Feeling by REO Speedwagon! Yeesh!)

And brushing up on your ballroom dancing moves is a great idea, too. Good luck and best wishes!

We have chosen a ColdPlay track called Green Eyes.

Honey you are a rock

Upon which I stand

And I come here to talk

I hope you understand

The green eyes

Yeah the spotlight

Shines upon you

And how could

Anybody

Deny you

I came here with a load

And it feels so much lighter

Now I've met you

Honey you should know

I could never go on

Without you

Green eyes

Honey you are the sea

Upon which I float

And I came here to talk

I think you should know

The green eyes

You're the one that I wanted to find

And anybody who tried to deny you,

Must be out of their minds

'Cause I came here with a load

And it feels so much lighter since I met you

Honey you should know,

That I could never go on

Without you

Green eyes, green eyes, ohohoh...

Honey you are a rock

Upon which I stand.

:guitar:

The Hollies...He Aint Heavy, He's My Brother. Calm down, calm down...just kidding.

Older brother whom you looked up to? Then how bout Wind Beneath My Wings?

You've Got A Friend...a great song for brother and sister.

You're My Best Friend...Queen.

Sister - The Nixons (although that might be better if you were the one getting married, I don't know)

Um... beyond that... what kind of song are you looking for? Like what style of music, what do you want it to say to him?

I've always thought The Platters sang the perfect wedding song:

~Only You~

Only you can make this world seem right

Only you can make the darkness bright

Only you and you alone

Can thrill me like you do

And fill my heart with love for only you

Only you can make this change in me

For it's true, you are my destiny

When you hold my hand

I understand the magic that you do

You're my dream come true

My one and only you

Only you can make this change in me

For it's true, you are my destiny

When you hold my hand

I understand the magic that you do

You're my dream come true

My one and only you

Well, it was perfect in So I Married an Axe Murderer.

:P

Call me old fashioned, but a timeless classic...

Unforgettable - Nat King Cole

Unforgettable, that's what you are

Unforgettable though near or far

Like a song of love that clings to me

How the thought of you does things to me

Never before has someone been more

Unforgettable in every way

And forever more, that's how you'll stay

That's why, darling, it's incredible

That someone so unforgettable

Thinks that I am unforgettable too

Instrumental interlude...

Unforgettable in every way

And forever more, that's how you'll stay

That's why, darling, it's incredible

That someone so unforgettable

Thinks that I am unforgettable too

PLEASE HELP! At my wedding I am doing a butterfly release in memory of my granny that recently passed away. I have been trying to think of a song to be played during the release in her memory. Any ideas? :help:
