I think we are doing “Can you feel the love tonight” by Elton John. And if we want it to be a little more fun we may do the lion King version. I love it and everyone loves the Lion King and Elton John, right?!

@LadyJDAG – I love ‘Flightless’! Not only is it a super super pretty song, but dancing to it at a wedding would be way better than prom (sorry Bella). lol Good choice!

My Kind of Woman, My Kind of Man by Vince Gill and Patty Loveless.  It was one of his grandma’s favorite songs so I thought that would be special since she’s no longer with us.  Plus the song is perfect!

I wanted “At Last” because it’s such a beautiful and powerful song…And I thought it would be easy to dance to. But our dance instructor got more excited about our second choice “The Way You Look Tonight”, Michael Buble’s version. He performs it with a little Latin beat , so now we have to learn the rumba Surprised

I think(?) we’re dancing to Van Morrison’s “These Are the Days.”  At least, that’s our plan for now.  🙂


Other contenders have been “This Years Love” by David Gray, “Ever the Same” by Rob Thomas (the acoustic iTunes version), “Stars Go Blue” by Ryan Adams/Tim McGraw.

@ bananapants:   Too funny.  We were thinking Van Morrison, but “Into The Mystic” (my fav song) or David Gray “This Years Love”!

Another contender is Lifehouse “You & Me”.  Not my favorite song, but one that has been deemed “our” song by the suprisingly odd number of times it has been on during specific times in our relationship.

i’ve never heard of anyone else having the same one we picked… it’s by guns n roses and it’s called “patience”.  we’re just dancing to the first half of the song which is all the lyrics… then when they start to go crazy on the guitars, we are having it fade out.

a weird choice? 

well, i guess it does conjure up images of axl rose dancing his weird side-to-side dance while rocking some spandex outfit, but no other lyrics could be more perfect for us, considering when we first met and fell in love, we were living 3,000 miles apart (i met him while he was on vacation in my state).  i spent a lot of time crying tearful goodbyes in airports.

Shed a tear ’cause I’m missin’ you
I’m still alright to smile
Girl, I think about you every day now
Was a time when I wasn’t sure
But you set my mind at ease
There is no doubt
You’re in my heart now

Said, woman, take it slow
It’ll work itself out fine
All we need is just a little patience
Said, sugar, make it slow
And we come together fine
All we need is just a little patience…

Brad paisley- She’s Everything!  He told me a few years ago that it reminded him of me and since it’s such a sweet and beautifil song we decided it would be perfect!  That was my easiest decision!!
