We were long distance and used Stand By Me just cause we liked it. But I’ve always loved Steady As We Go by DMB for LDRs:

 

I’ll walk halfway around the world

Just to sit down by your side

And I would do most anything, girl

To be the apple of your eye

Well troubles, they may come and go

But good times, they’re the gold

And if the road gets rocky, girl

Just steady as we go

 

Any place you wanna go

Know I’ll be next to you

If it’s treasure, baby, you’re looking for

I’ll search the whole world through

I know troubles, they may come and go

But good times, they’re the gold

So if the road gets rocky, girl

Just steady as we go

 

When the storm comes down you shelter me

When I don’t say a word and you know exactly what i mean

In the darkest times, oh, you shine on me

You set me free and keep me steady as we go

 

So if your heart wrings dry, my love

I will fill your cup

And if your load gets heavy, girl

I will lift you up

Well troubles, they may come and go

But good times be the gold

So if the road gets rocky, girl

Just steady as we go

Ours was Beyond the Sea by Bobby Darin.  It fit us perfectly!

I feel like “Such Great Heights” by Postal Service is a popular LDR first dance song.  The cover by Iron and Wine is much slower and not synthesized.

“Lucky” by Jason Mraz and Colbie Calliat is popular and that’s clearly about a LDR.  It’s also a really pretty and sweet song.

This is one of our songs.  I didn’t use it at the wedding because every time I hear one of our songs I burst out in tears.  It is ‘Carrying Your Love with Me’ by George Strait.

Ours will be Love Song (the 311 cover).

However far away, I will always love you…

We won’t be having an official first dance, but if we were going to, I’d want to use Patsy Cline’s “You Belong to Me.”  Definitely an LDR song.

Also, when I was living in South Africa last summer, I used to have to change the channel whenever “Lucky” came on to the MTV station at the gym, because I got too emotional – and it’s not even that I like the song that much!

We haven’t decided on our song yet – but I’m thinking Such Great Heights! I love this song.

Ours is At Last. Very sweet, definitely a LDR song. I can’t wait!

At Last

My love has come along

My lonely days are over

And life is like a song

O yea yea

At last…

Listen to it on myspace or itunes. So romantic and sweet. Good luck! O and I LOVE the DMB song, JeniRae. Beautiful and a really good one!

We weren’t LDR but the song we used as our first dance would be appropriate:

Do you hear me,
I’m talking to you
Across the water across the deep blue ocean
Under the open sky, oh my, baby I’m trying
Boy I hear you in my dreams
I feel your whisper across the sea
I keep you with me in my heart
You make it easier when life gets hard

I’m lucky I’m in love with my best friend
Lucky to have been where I have been
Lucky to be coming home again
Ooohh ooooh oooh oooh ooh ooh ooh ooh

They don’t know how long it takes
Waiting for a love like this
Every time we say goodbye
I wish we had one more kiss
I’ll wait for you I promise you, I will

I’m lucky I’m in love with my best friend
Lucky to have been where I have been
Lucky to be coming home again
Lucky we’re in love every way
Lucky to have stayed where we have stayed
Lucky to be coming home someday

And so I’m sailing through the sea
To an island where we’ll meet
You’ll hear the music fill the air
I’ll put a flower in your hair
Though the breezes through trees
Move so pretty you’re all I see
As the world keeps spinning round
You hold me right here right now

I’m lucky I’m in love with my best friend
Lucky to have been where I have been
Lucky to be coming home again
I’m lucky we’re in love every way
Lucky to have stayed where we have stayed
Lucky to be coming home someday

Does anyone know the band Thrice? They have such a beautiful song called Atlantic. Here are the lyrics:

it’s been so long, and tin cans and string for years
is all that we’ve known, could it be you’re really here

’cause my eyes are open, and everything still moves in slow-motion,
breathless and blue, and behind your eyes the sea
oceans of light envelop me

but things can’t be as they seem, I’m so far from home
this must be another dream, but my eyes are open

and everything still moves in slow-motion,
breathless and blue, and behind your eyes the sea
oceans of light envelop me

my eyes are open, and everything still moves in slow-motion,
breathless and blue, and behind your eyes the sea
oceans of light envelop me

Hope that helps!

We love Rascall Flatts- God Bless the Broken Road (that lead me straight to you…)…  That is, if you like country music 🙂
