Shamelessly nicking an idea from a comment made on a film thread wondererd what us old married folk on here had as their first song at their wedding. When Tina and Adam got married they apparently had Al Green - Lets Stay Together, which I am sure was lovely for the pair of them.

Mine was Elvis Can't Help Falling in Love.

Used to work with a bloke who got married a good few years before me who had Glen Maderos (spl) Nothing's gonna change my love for you, which as those of us old enough will know is not a great choice.

He is the women in our relationship.

Good choice of song, Jeff. I am guessing TSMR chose it judging by your previous appalling taste in music.

Not at all Tina. I genuinely love Elvis, and not in some tossy kitschy studenty mocking way. I had little involvement in the planning of our wedding beyond picking that song and insisting on Elvis.

That Adam is the woman really went without saying Tina.

I had a friend who was a bit of a funkster/ hippy type growing up.

i hadnt seen him in years but got invited to the evening do anyway. So when he got up to dance with his bride to "woman in Red" by chris Deburgh, I thought he had been brainwashed by his bride to be.

After about 15 seconds, the DJ did one of those comical record scratch noises and in kicked Kung Fu Fighting for their first song. Legend!

Indeed, Tina. The wedding reception would have to take place in the public toilets in Berwick with eveyone having to pay their own 20p entry.

Jeff, you are out of my league but you that's what happens when you subscribe to the cheapest copy of "Mail Order Brides".

We had Bon Jovi - Thank You For Loving Me. It was excrutiating, far too long, it was really bright in the room and it's too slow to even shuffle along with!
Last song of the night was Goo Goo Dolls - Iris and that has now become 'our song'.

A break from the traditional Dundee method of delivering wedding invites by wrapping them around bricks and throwing them through the last unbroken window of each guest's house.

Me and Mrs Womble had Aerosmith - I Don't Want To Miss A Thing. That wasn't her first choice, her 1st choice was The Way You Look Tonight by Frank Sinatra but SOMEBODY (i.e. me) forgot the CD and the DJ didn't have it!!

I've always fancied having Woman by Anti-Nowhere League playing at my first few weddings. It probably goes some distance to explaining why I've never been married.

I've not walked that particular plank just yet, but the more I think about it, the more I can see me and my lady friend having 'Father Figure' by George Michael as the wedding opener. That song is, to quote the lady herself, THE sex. Amazing record, really, and a favourite of both of ours.

I recently heard a story regarding wedding songs which I desperately hope is true. Apparently this couple were getting married and informed the organisers that they wanted their first dance (or the aisle walk, one of the two) to be "the theme tune from Robin Hood." Now obviously, most people would eventually come to realise that the couple probably meant 'Everything I Do' by Bryan Adams, the soundtrack to the mega box office smash 'Robin Hood, Prince of Thieves' as it was one of the biggest selling singles ever on these shores and is a popular 'couples' song.

However, the bright sparks in charge were apparently oblivious to this and, at the key moment when the couple went for their first dance or were coming down the aisle, they were met with the old 'Robin Hood, Robin Hood, riding through the glen!' guff blasting out from the speakers. Classic.

Heaven - Bryan Adams

Our last song of the night was Faithless - Insomnia Very Happy

Once we had tied the knot we walked back down the aisle to Bob Marley - Is this love and I think the wife walked up the aisle to Eva Cassidy - Fields of Gold.

If/When I get married I'd like any of these songs. The first as something to walk back down the aisle to (after we're married):

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z7xISpjCgvE

Something for the evening dance (it's a bit melancholy but such a romantic record I think):

I think that would've gone down a storm with the guests anyway! Laugh

My sister had "The Time of My Life" by Jennifer Warnes/Bill Medley at hers. Good job there was no cheese on the menu for the meal...

I resent that, my nan thought it was a lovely touch, at least I think she did, I caught her too close to the window and she just sort of drools now

Our first song was the video-DJ being a dunce, and halfway through my speech Sinead O'Connor came on Rolling Eyes

But the first dance was to Endless Love by Lionel Richie and Diana Ross. No-one joined in so we went round in circles for four minutes!

When I get married then I think itd have to be Jersey Girl by springsteen. Unless I do the likely thing and never even meet a jersey girl. In which case I'd have to go with A rainy night in Soho by the always coherent Shane Mac Gowan and the Pogues.

Damien Dempsey does lovely version of A Rainy Night In Soho. Just in case you wanted to save something by The Pogues for later on when people get more pished. Smile

How funny, Boss. There is a thread on here about what song you want at your funeral and I picked Rainy night in Soho for that! I absolutely love that song but have always considered it a remorseful track rather than a happy one.

Shows how subjective music can be.

Cari I love Damo's version of it. A song I'd love to have at the wedding by The Pogues is a Pair of Brown Eyes. Although that would mean I need a brown eyed girl and have to explain the lurics. "One summer's evening drunk to hell I sat there nearly lifelss" isn't the most openly romatic line of all time.

I don't know Tino, its one of my favourite songs but I see what you mean. Might be something in the way that its sang. Shane Mac Gowan isn't a man you associate with all things love-related.
