Alright, so I started making a list of songs for our wedding and put down the song for the BM/GM to walk and for me to walk as the same song because I didn’t want to cut it short and there isn’t much of a walk. He likes the song and even suggested it for that but wanted to know what you guys think. Is it a good song for me to walk to? He also wanted to know what you thought of our first dance song. He knows I’m always talking to people on here and told me to write this post so this is really from my FI. lol
I don’t like to rain on people’s parades usually but since you did ask for opinions, I will respectfully offer mine. I have to agree with @tksjewelry. The Ross-Richie version of Endless Love is one of my favorite songs of all time. Mariah Carey and Luther Vandross did a passing version as well. Aside from my intense dislike for Gokey, objectively, I think he’s butchering the song.
I absolutely love the first one; I’ve always found an acoustic guitar more inviting and romantic than a full orchestra suite for a brides walk. Never been much of a fan for Canon in D either 😛 But I love this song, because it has the subtly and beauty that I feel a brides walk needs
The second song is very classic rnb/cafe/jazz even I would say. I have to admit I dont like the vocals as much as the first song, but it does seem like something you can dance too (its a faster paced than the first). I think they are good choices, but I do prefer the vocal stylings a bit more of the first one. I think I just love acoustic and the sound it has 🙂
Edit: I mean, I think Im a bit biased here (Im all about the folksy, acoustic music, I chose the version of The Sundays Wild Horses for my ideal walk song :P) so that says alot
So really I think maybe the second song (I listened to it again) might be reassessed; I just really dont like the vocal stylings, and I think there are more soulful rnb/easy listening songs that capture the romance a bit better than this one.
The first song is nice. I wouldn’t choose a song with words, but I know a lot of brides do..I guess I am just old fashioned because I chose Canon in D..haha! It’s a very pretty song though..beautiful!
As for the second song, I listened to both versions and prefer the original. However, if you prefer this version – go for it! Our first dance song was Etta James- At Last, however we used Beyonce’s version because we found it to be a bit more modern.
