My FI is very involved in the wedding planning process and he told me that he wanted to see me walking down the aisle to an Apocalyptica song. For those of you who have no idea who Apocalyptica is, they are a Finnish metal band that consists of three classically trained cellists and a a drummer. They have original songs and they also do covers of metal bands such as metallica. Look them up on youtube, you won’t be dissapointed!
Anyway, because I love the band and because we have such sweet memories of the night we went to see them live (he gave me tickets to one of their concerts for Christmas a couple of years ago), I agreed. After listening to many of their songs we both agreed upon their cover of Metallica’s “Nothing Else Matters.” Although not technically a love song, the lyrics of the original metallica song read to us as a love song and they make us very happy.
Here it is:
Are any of you bees walking down the aisle to untraditional/offbeat songs? If so, what’s your song?
I’m stuck between two choices right now – either “Neighborhoods #1 (Tunnels)” by the Arcade Fire, or “Goodbye Happiness” by Utada Hikaru. The only thing keeping me from using the latter is the title, but if the title isn’t in the programs it’s not an issue LoL.
Mine will either be “Redford (for Yia-Yia & Pappau)” by Sufjan Stevens, “Say Yes” by Elliott Smith performed by Vitamin String Quartet, or “Just Like Heaven” by The Cure performed by Vitamin String Quartet.
@soontobeMrsBoo: People keep trying to convince me to watch that movie. All I know about it: Mawage. Mawage is wot bwings us togeder tooday.Mawage, that bwessed awangment, that dweam wifin a dweam… LOL
@laekna: I think it is some awesome that you have known what song you wanted to walk down the aisle to for that long! I kept changing my mind until my FI made his choice and I couldn’t be happier that he did. Besides deciding that we wanted to get married, the song was our very first wedding related decision 🙂
