A Question for you. Yes, you. If you are reading this now, I’m talking to you.

What was your wedding song?  Either the first song you danced to as a married couple, or the one that closed out the event… Or both.

Now, tell me how long you have been married, and tell me now, what your wedding song should have been in hindsight where all vision is 20/20.

Has it changed?

I ask this because I was chatting with a friend of mine who said their wedding song was “Stairway to Heaven” by Led Zeppelin, but in hindsight with all the troubles they’ve had over the years together and the impending marital break-up, it should have been “Highway to Hell” by AC/DC.

So that got me thinking.


Ours was “Heaven” by Bryan Adams, which I picked but in hindsight it probably should have been a children’s song since our kids have become such an important part of our lives.  That or I should have let me wife pick one of her “favourite songs” from days gone by, like “Blue Monday” by New Order to some song called “Girlfriend in a Coma”, not that they relate to us, but that she really likes those songs and gentlemen, we all know, a happy wife = a happy life.


So whats your story?

    LOL, did you know the most popular Bon Jovi wedding song is “Always”? It is about a stalker! I debated the slowed down version of “Born to Be my Baby”, but thought it was too long…”Thank You for Loving me” Is over 5 mins which we didn’t realize until enroute to the reception!

    All Bon Jovi songs are awesome 😉

      I just read through the lyrics and thought the words for “Always” were beautiful then I saw a comment where Bon jovi said the song was about a stalker. Not that I doubted you… 🙂

      Who knew?

      Well, you did.

      My favourite album is the soundtrack from Young Guns 11. That was Bon jovi and their lyrical best.

    Thank-You For Loving Me, Bon Jovi. Going on 7 years and wouldn’t change it, still perfect for us.

      I used to love Bon Jovi but I’m not to familiar with that song. I’ll have to check it out online.

      I suppose their other big hits; Bad Medicine, You give Love a Bad Name, Dead or Alive, might not be the best choices, although I love “I’ll be there for you”. That’s an awesome love song.

    21 years ago it was “Under The Boardwalk” by The Drifters. Wouldn’t change a thing. 🙂

      That song has always been one of my favourite songs eventhough it’s a wee bit too calm for me. 😉 I have a soft spot for ballads / love songs / meaningful songs and this one fits in.

      When you guys hear it do you make googly eyes at each other?
