- Wedding: December 2016
My ultimate ever favorite song is Just Like Heaven by The Cure. It’s an oldie and it’s not a song someone dedicated to me or anything, it’s just a song that can cheer me up in an instant, make me dance even by myself (I seriously have been the only person on a dance floor dancing to it because I requested it), and I want it to be played at my funeral. If you know, you know that’s my favorite song. When fiancé and I started dating… I remember being at a restaurant/ bar that had a band and they played it. Nobody wanted to dance (I didn’t ask him because we had just started dating and I was shy to ask him) so I went up there by myself. He told my bff that I was a “cool girl” and to “look at her, she’s dancing all by herself and doesn’t care!” Then he said he couldn’t blame me, it was a great song. He knows this is my favorite song and he likes it, but defintately doesn’t love it like me. He took me to see The Cure several months ago and I saw it live. I cried. Dumb, I know but it moved me. It just makes me happy.
Now, this other song isn’t my fiances favorite song but he has said it reminds him of me. He has mentioned it being a part of our wedding and we almost made it our first dance but we liked another song better. This other song talks about a dude who travels and the girl loves him so much that she sacrifices some for him. My guy is a pilot and travels for a living. He is gone for 4-8 days at a time. It is hard but we have great constant communication that helps. It also makes us miss each other and the sex is awesome when he comes home. 👍🏼 The song is beautiful and he heard it through me because of one of my favorite bands, City and Colour.
My dream has always been to walk into Just Like Heaven, a slower version.
But since he loves this other song so much (I love it too), and it makes him think of ME, I would like to surprise him.
We had decided to walk out to the original Just Like Heaven by The Cure. I actually want it to start playing when the officiant pronounces us “husband and wife” because the beginning part is beautiful (the drums!) and it would be a perfect happy song for our first kiss.
Here are the 2 versions of the songs, that I like:
City and Colour (The Girl)
The Cure (Just Like Heaven)
My thinking is I’d love to walk in to the song that I know he will always think of me when he hears it, always has- Just Like Heaven. When I pass, he will always remember me dancing to it, walking down the aisle to it, etc.
But I’d also love to walk into a song that is personal for him that he told me himself, made him think about everything I do in our relationship in order to make our lifestyle work.
What do you think!?
