Rule Britannia!
Well, I'm getting married in a couple of months and we need a song for the first dance.

Yes, we HAD one, but my man's sister was married last month and they danced to the same song we wanted (it was ideal - "Rule the World" by Take That, from the movie "Stardust").

So we just can't have that track. Simply out of the question.

We really want something romantic, and the only one we've found so far that comes remotely close is "How 'Bout Us" by Champaign....


Any (serious and helpful) suggestions? Post a link if you can.

Any song you choose with the Mr. will work, Stella. Whatever you decide on?....when you hear it, it's going to be special. I'm going to try to talk Vi into Birdhouse In Your Soul from They Might Be Giants.



Congratulations and best wishes to you and your fiancé.

Chasing Cars lyrics

We'll do it all
Everything
On our own

We don't need
Anything
Or anyone

If I lay here
If I just lay here
Would you lie with me and just forget the world?

I don't quite know
How to say
How I feel

Those three words
Are said too much
They're not enough

If I lay here
If I just lay here
Would you lie with me and just forget the world?

Forget what we're told
Before we get too old
Show me a garden that's bursting into life

Let's waste time
Chasing cars
Around our heads

I need your grace
To remind me
To find my own

If I lay here
If I just lay here
Would you lie with me and just forget the world?

Forget what we're told
Before we get too old
Show me a garden that's bursting into life

All that I am
All that I ever was
Is here in your perfect eyes, they're all I can see

I don't know where
Confused about how as well
Just know that these things will never change for us at all

If I lay here
If I just lay here
Would you lie with me and just forget the world?



Lovesong : The Cure

Whenever I'm alone with you
You make me feel like I am home again
Whenever I'm alone with you
You make me feel like I am whole again
Whenever I'm alone with you
You make me feel like I am young again
Whenever I'm alone with you
You make me feel like I am fun again

However far away I will always love you
However long I stay I will always love you
Whatever words I say I will always love you
I will always love you

Whenever I'm alone with you
You make me feel like I am free again
Whenever I'm alone with you
You make me feel like I am clean again

However far away I will always love you
However long I stay I will always love you
Whatever words I say I will always love you
I will always love you

I was under the impression that the first dance should be a waltz, and at the wedding I just attended they played Leonard Cohen - Take this waltz.

Aww.. and I was going to try to talk you into this:

I'm afraid I'm not very up on my romantic tunes, Stella. Maybe something like You Are My First, My Last, My Everything by Barry White? Congrats to you and the mister!

Oooo! Steve Miller Band's Stuck in the Middle With You


It's not very romantic, but it rocks.

That's not the Steve Miller Band....that's Stealers Wheel. :10_003:
No kidding? My whole life I've thought...


It's all been a lie! A big, fat, dirty lie!


Seriously? (Thanks for the clarification, Blood!)

Don't really want to do a waltz.... just not 'us', if you know what I mean.

Ooooh! Barry White! That's definitely made it onto the list of options - thank you Violet! And thanks for the congrats too.

Oh, you should definitely dance to ^^^that when you marry PB!

Nice. But dull.

If you want to get hardcore...
This is quite possibly the most tedious song I've ever heard. But thanks for the input!

It DOES rock. But not for this occasion.
