Seems like most couples I know have a song that's really just theirs... it evokes a wonderful memory or has some other special significance. This isn't just about the title of a song, it's about the song itself having meaning to you and your SO.
That's the song that we played at the end of our wedding ceremony. It was one of the songs I put on a mix tape I made for my wife when I was trying to get her attention... to let her know I wanted to be more than friends.
That song brings a smile to both our faces to this day.
He introduced me to Curtis Mayfield's music. Whenever we listen to his music, it takes us back to that first year together. Driving around with windows down in summer time, chatting, having picnics. Such a beautiful time.
It just fits our life, we are always trying to get somewhere that's just for us, and only we know. Sometimes we find it. Even though the song is talking about feelings and a good place in the relationship.
Our wedding was very small - basically going to have a legal wedding. Over the next few years, my wife began to express wishing she had a bigger wedding. So on our 10th anniversay, we had a vow renewal that gave her the chance to have the kind of wedding she missed.
Instead of having someone sing for us, I led her beside the piano, and I sat down and played for her a medley of "The Rose" and "Arirang." I wrote the arrangement myself and played those two because at the time, they were our favorite love songs from my country, and from hers.
She never looked more beautiful than she did that day. And she still asks me to play that for her sometimes. I always comply ... The medley is ours now.
I was a complete Gentleman when we first started dating.
Didn't even kiss her on the first date.
Made her dinner one night in my apt and this song was playing.
She was on the couch and I came out of the kitchen, moving, dancing and singing to her.
It's always been our song since that night.
Reading the title of this song, just caused me to rick roll.
Ever since we heard this one coming on the radio - on our very anniversary night yrs ago -laying in bed together... we claimed it as our own... that was kind of a magical moment, I think we even cried -to those words.
I love all those drippy sappy mushy romantic songs.... so does my husband..we love to mush up together. If we are separated, we always tell the other if we hear a song out & about & thought of the other.....and when we are together in the car & one comes on....we give each other those eyes.... they always take us back in time to a beautiful place, flooding us with memories.
Hearing "Faithfully" and "Open Arms" by Journey... those were powerful ones of our youth.
I was terribly into John Cougar when we met.... I think I called our 1st song "Hurts so Good" - which was totally unfitting....but it sure was exciting singing at the top of our lungs ....sitting so close together....those 1st days getting off with my 1st real boyfriend in a car trailing down old country roads!
