Calico Skies by Paul McCartney

FH was put in charge of music, and he’s a huge Beatles/Paul McCartney fan… He also loves using this song b/c it’s not uber popular, and the lyrics are perfect.

Ours is “Marry Me” by Train. My Fiance and I rarely agree on music, and we both LOVE this one, so that’s what we’ve chosen.

no first dance.  only one dance and that’s with my father to Daddy’s Little Girl…

We are having musicians (duet) playing “background” music from the 60’s, 70’s…

@anemonie:  Same!! Good taste! Smile I know I’m not in your October group (almost!) but we just decided our song this weekend so I’m excited. I used to listen to “Dream a Little Dream of Me” when I was a girl and swoon about how romantic and dreamy it was. The song has a great structure; I love how it starts with just the guitar and her voice, then the bass comes in, then the drums and the back-up vocal harmonies, then the honky-tonk piano. I think it’s very timeless and sweet without being corny. We’re going to dance blues to it.  

We also considered Otis Redding’s “My Girl” or “Try a Little Tenderness”; Ray Charles’ “Hallelujah I Love Her So”; and Nina Simone’s “My Baby Just Cares for Me” and “Feeling Good.”

I really had a hard time finding a song.  We both have this thing for a song called “under your spell” but it’s sorta stalkerish and I don’t know if I want to dance in front of everyone to that song.  So we are discussing using “Stolen” by dashboard confesssional

We did “Living of Love” by The Avett Brothers. We liked it because it seemed to reflect our past and journey, and seemed a little more “realistic” than other love songs. Plus it was slow and totally seventh grade awkward danceable to 🙂

We decided on “Our love is here to stay” by Frank Sinatra. It was kind of hard to pick out because Fiance and i don’t really have a song together. I LOOOVE frank Sinitra and our band knows how to play this too. I love the lyrics. We originally picked Harvest Moon by Neil Young but it was too hard to dance to. Any one taking dance lessons? I think i’m going to do last minute dance lessons.

@Mrs.C.to.bee:  Coming from a family of KISS fans, I have to give you props for picking this song. We are hoping to work in some Vitamin String Quartet covers into our wedding somehow… I’m just dying to see if my mother or brother would notice!

We’re doing Edith Piaf’s “La Vie en Rose.” Most people’s reaction to that is, “Huh?”
