I’m planning for my little brother to play an acoustic guitar as I walk down the aisle for the procession. My sister loves this song, as do I, and she suggested I use this song for my walk down the aisle…”In My Life” by the Beatles. Anyone think this would be a good idea or weird? I’ve read some people think it’s a sad song and others think it’s about love. I’m just not really sure exactly. Listen to this link on You Tube—the first several seconds of the video are silent, just wait, it’ll start when he begins to play: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gqyg1jD2zQc
And here are the lyrics:
There are places I remember / All my life though some have changed / Some forever not for better / Some have gone and some remain / All these places had their moments / With lovers and friends I still can / Some are dead and some are living / In my life I’ve loved them all
But of all these friends and lovers / There is no one compares with you / And these memories lose their meaning / When I think of love as something new / Though I know I’ll never lose affection / For people and things that went beforeI know I’ll often stop and think about them / In my life I love you more
Though I know I’ll never lose affection / For people and things that went before / I know I’ll often stop and think about them / In my life I love you more / In my life I love you more

I think it’s great!!! Would you have someone singing? If you’re just doing the instrumental version, I’m sure many people won’t even know what the song is!

If I had someone singing it I would just use the original Beatles version because I don’t have anyone who can sing. After listening to the video again, I think I would cut it off before it got into the quicker part. I would also make sure the song is listed in the program with it’s title and who it’s by so hopefully people will recognize it.

it’s a beautiful song and sounds amazing on acoustic guitar, but i think of it as a sad song.

I don’t think its sad at all… They’re talking about how there are/have been tons of things and people in their lives. Even though they love them all, “I love you more”.
I would choose “Here comes the sun” personally. 🙂

I think its beautiful, and i like the sentiment. You are leaving something behind for something better when you walk down the aisle… and I think that song expresses that.

Thanks ladies! And about mandalee‘s suggestion of “Here Comes the Sun”–my sister actually walked in with that song at her wedding two years ago. 🙂
