Wedding dash

10Jul11

For the past few weeks I have been searching and listening for some happy-ending love songs that would qualify for my wedding dinner playlist to be performed next week. I know there are heaps scattered all over the net but basically I’d like my set to be unconventional–not familiar with most people but are equally great with lines that will automatically sweep off your feet once you hear it.  Believe it or not, I’m getting teary-eyed for every rehearsals. I have browsed through my iPod, asked suggestions from friends, and ran through my notes.  So far, I thought I should have these on my set:

1. Marry Me – Train
This is supposed to be sung probably few years back when the guy first saw the girl and felt the world stopped for a while and daydreams of being with her wife and all. ~you’ll wear white and I’ll wear out the words ‘I love you’ and ‘you’re beautiful’~

2. I’ll Be – Edwin McCain
For me it’s more like giving your word to your partner that you’ll stand by his/her side no matter what happens ~I’ll be better when I’m older, I’ll be the greatest fan of your life~

3. Valentine – Kina Grannis
I just knew that there’s this big probability of Kina Grannis having a positive love song–that’s after hearing Cambridge on Strangers Again. And I was right! ~I don’t need those things, I don’t need no ring, I don’t need anything. But you with me ’cause in your company, I feel happy oh so happy and complete~

4. Chasing Cars – Snow Patrol
Two lines in the song that nails it: the opening lines ~We’ll do it all everything on our own, we don’t need anything or anyone~ and ~Those three words, I said too much, but not enough~ not mere words but it’s a never-ending expression

5. Real Love – The Beatles
This is the love song that is written very well. We all experience love and we always thought we already have, and Lennon here tells us that there is what he calls “real love”, the kind that makes you say “finally” and “this is it”.  ~From this moment on I know exactly where my life will go~
