We spent so much time looking for the perfect song for us to dance to. We had always said Kenny Chesney’s Me and You was “our” song, but one day we were talking about it and just felt it wasnnt really us. For almost a month we went back and forth trying to figure out what we felt represented our relationship, then like it was a sign from the music gods……Brad Paisley’s “Then” came on pandora while we were cleaning one Sunday and I got chills!! I went into the other room, and before I could spit out, this is the song FI said it! We always say what the other is thinking and that was just a little special memory I have with us picking our song. That got me wondering as to what everyone else is using and how did you decide THAT was your song?!

Our song is “Only Exception” by Paramore. One day my hubby and I were in the car and the song came on and he said he had always thought of that as our song, so it stuck. He listens to a lot of symphonic metal and weird music, so it was a huge relief that he had a “normal” song that made him think of us.

“Can’t Help Falling In Love” by Ingrid Michaelson. The first time we danced together, we were in the middle of a road (like Noah and Allie in The Notebook), and I sang it quietly while we danced. 🙂

Ours is Kings of Leon “Use Somebody”, not picked for the lyrics, simply picked because that was the song playing when my husband first told me he loved me, so we had that as our First Dance 🙂

I think we are have decided on Fade Into You by Mazzy Star. We both adore the song and when we were listening to and coming up with songs we wanted played, we both thought this would make an amazing first dance song. It was FI idea and I love the song.

Our song is Invincible by Chantal Kreviazuk. When my FI and I started dating we heard this song over lunch and he told me that when he hears this song at work it makes him think of me. And from then on we considered it our song =D

@FutureWife517: We also went back and forth. For awhile I had a list of six songs that I would change my mind between. We eventually decided on Chasing Cars by Snow Patrol. It’s how I first said I love you and we figured the lyrics weren’t overly corny lovey dovey.

- Wedding: May 2013 - Canal St Inn
Ours is “Jenny Says” by Cowboy Mouth. If no one knows this song, it’s because it only got a little airplay nationally in the mid-90s, but it’s their big hit. When FI and I first met in a French Quarter bar and started talking music, I tested his obscure band knowledge by asking if he knew the song, which he did. Immediately. It was an instant bonding moment, it’s a fun, fast-paced song, and it will be our first dance. As a surprise we’re doing a choreographed swing dance to it. Can’t wait. 🙂

@shadowblind: I remeber that song!
“Our” song is “Never Had Nobody Like You” by M. Ward. It just fits. We both had a looooooooot of others in our heydays!
We might end up dancing to “The Man in Me” by Bob Dylan (or Ray LaMontagne) because that is slightly slower. Neither one of us wants to bother with putting too much effort into our dance. We say that now…

I always thought it would be “I need you” By Faith Hill and Tim McGraw. When we first started dating, that was the song that represented us. I aways thought it would be “our” dance, untill I heard “God Gave me you” By Blake Shelton. Now that song deffinately represents us.

We really have two- The one we danced to was “Then” (you have great taste) We have been in love with it since it came out. And it was our first song.
Our other song is “ Crazy Girl” by the Eli Young Band- I loved the song for about 5 months and It came on the radio when I was with DH( before we were married) He apparently had been living under a rock and never heard it. He immediately got a huge smile on his face. After that he got called on a fire in a dif state for over 2 weeks (he is a wild land firefighter) when he got home he tad me that every night he would listen to it on repeat.
I usually keep all of my feelings in and then burst lol. We were together for over 3 years, owned a house and had 3 dogs before he proposed. I kind of had a meltdown… apparently he was already planning the proposal and had the ring and he said it took everything in him to not give it to me then.
“Crazy Girl” is prob. the best description of our relationship and us to a “T”.
