I’m having so much trouble deciding on slideshow songs!! The groom-to-be has already picked “In My Life” by The Beatles for him growing up, which is awesome.
However I’m torn on mine! What do you think of Brandi Carlile’s “The Story” (see below video & lyrics)
So, I was thinking this song may be perfect (it makes me cry almost every time I hear it) but not sure if it translates as “sad” when people who don’t know the song hear it or “She Will Be Loved” by Maroon 5. Thoughts??

I love Brandi Carlile, but have actually always thought that song was a sad breakup song (based on the line “these stories don’t mean anything when you’ve got no one to tell them to” and the the way she phrases the words, the sound of the background music etc.). Now that I look at the lyrics, though, I see that it reads much more like a heartfelt love song…. but that wasn’t my first impression the first time I heard it or the many times I’ve listened to it since. (I also think the Maroon 5 song sounds sad, and its lyrics are more ambiguous than the Brandi Carlile song).
