- Wedding: September 2011
My fiance and I don’t really have a song, like most couples do. We have a few songs that mean something to us, but are more punk rock and aren’t appropriate for first dance songs. (My favorite is Good Thing, by Reel Big Fish and his is Who would’ve thought, by Rancid.) While it would be very “us” to come out skanking to our first dance song, I personally really want the slow dance, intimate, semi-serious moment. So for the longest time we were, I thought, kind of settled on The Cure’s Lovesong, but covered by Adele. He said to me last night as we are finalizing the list that he likes the original song but just not Adele or her version. So now we’re trying to find a song we can mutually agree on.
Some other alternatives: Billy Bragg and Wilco, California Stars; Billy Bragg, 14th of February; Red Hot Chili Peppers, Hard To Concentrate.
I’m just not sure what would make a good song, especially since we cannont dance!
