Yeah, I was talking about an engagement ring. The jeweler is having a sale, if you bring any old ring in you get 50% off.

In the U.S., we have the famous DeBeers ads asking, "How else can two months' salary last forever?"

I remember telling my high school boyfriend it was six months though, just to freak him out!

Don't leave us hanging. Which songs do you want, if you don't mind sharing?
Hey, sorry I haven't replied sooner. School got kinda crazy there for a couple weeks. The song I'd dance to with my father is "Isn't She Lovely" by Stevie Wonder, because my dad always said that he picked it for me to be 'my song' when I was born. The song I'd sing to my husband is "Words Can't Describe" - it's a jazz standard and I can't remember the composer, but Sarah Vaughn does a great version.
Um, in my room, one seam is a little off and I stare at it constantly. It's, like, destroying me.

Kristin - I got all teary reading your post!
Prob'ly coz my Dad chose a song for me when I was born too "Little Ray of Sunshine", I forget who it's by, but it came out in 1980. I'm going to have that at my wedding.

My boyfriend and I have a song, but it's too soppy to mention, and I don't want it at our wedding coz it'd be sickening.

I rediscovered a song that I'd really like to dance to when I get married, the trick would be finding a girl that would agree to it. Anyway it's Live - Stood Up For Love. It's abstract, not too sappy, yet emotional. Something a little more unique and special than Shania Twain - You're Still The One.

Ugh, I have a hard time liking songs with glaring grammatical errors. She's in the Sheryl Crow club - hot, but her voice annoys me.

That's because you an English snob. I have no problem with grammatical errors since I'm very good at making them. But I suppose if there was a song that got one of Newton's laws of motion wrong it would annoy me too. Sing it with me! "A body stays in motion till acted upon by an.... outside force, an outside force..." No?

I'll retreat to the nerdery with my fellow nerds and our calculators now. :oops:

I will simply refer to a Buffy quote (there is a Buffy quote or a MSCL quote for every occasion):
Buffy and co (including her soldier boyfriend Riley) are watching a kung fu movie...

BUFFY: Oh, give me a break! This is all wrong. See, first you would get the big guy, with a flying kick. Then you would take out all the little ones, bam, ba- see, now with the flying kick. (scornfully) From a dead stop! What's powering it, raw enthusiasm?

RILEY: Hey Buff, maybe you oughta leave the work behind sometimes. You're not always on slayer duty, you know?

BUFFY: It would drive you crazy if we were watching an army movie and they were all saluting backwards and ... invading all willy-nilly.
It also drives me crazy to see things like vampires smoking because they are not supposed to be breathing. Sadly, it ain't just grammar errors that drive me crazy!

Reviving an older thread here...

My cousin is getting married in July next summer and she has asked me if I would sing something at the ceremony. They don't really have a lot of money, and the wedding will be in northern Wisconsin (my cousin & her fiance currently live in Seattle). This means I'll probably have to sing the song a cappella - no piano, no other instruments, just me. Any ideas for what love song would sound good unaccompanied? I was thinking maybe Etta James's At Last, but I don't know. Any input? Thanks!

(I would love to have some acustic guitars accompanying singers)

Pachelbel Cannon in D
"Turn Turn Turn" (The Byrds)

Dinner and Reception/Dancing:
"Leather and Lace" (Stevie Nicks - this was the song my sister and her husband danced to at their wedding)
"Mint Car" (The Cure -- this is the song I want to dance to at my wedding!)

Hey,

Don't know if it's any help at all but Mr. S and I had a song by Katie Melua (could be Mellua) at our wedding called 'Call off the Search'. It's virtually accompaniment-free anyway (although if there's a piano the harmonies could be easily transpose there anyway - you'd really only need someone who could hit a few chords at the right time), and it's a beautiful song. I'm sure you can listen to it online somewhere and I would really recommend it to you. I can bet they never will have heard it though, so that might be a drawback.

Thanks starbug, I'll check that song out. I can play piano a little bit, so maybe I'll be able to hit those few chords myself. Or I could just do it on guitar. I think it can be any song --- my cousin is not too particular or picky.

My brothers wedding song was "Your so vicious" by Lou reed.
Vicious
you hit me with a flower
You do it every hour
oh, baby, you're so vicious

Vicious
you want me to hit you with a stick
But all I've got is a guitar pick
huh, baby, you're so vicious

When I watch you come
baby, I just want to run far away
You're not the kind of person around I
want to stay

When I see you walking down the street
I step on your hands and I mangle your feet
You're not the kind of person that I want to meet

Oh, baby, you're so vicious
you're just so vicious

Vicious
hey, you hit me with a flower
You do it every hour
oh, baby you're so vicious

Vicious
hey, why don't you swallow razor blades
You must think that I'm some kind of gay blade
but baby, you're so vicious

When I see you coming
I just have to run
You're not good and you certainly aren't
very much fun

When I see you walking down the street
I step on your hand and I mangle your feet
You're not the kind of person that I'd even want to meet

'Cause you're so vicious
baby, you're so vicious
Vicious, vicious
vicious, vicious
Vicious, vicious
vicious, vicious
...
Mine was far less alternative. we danced to "love" by JOhn Lennon. A simple/classic love song.
Love is real, real is love,
Love is feeling, feeling love,
Love is wanting to be loved.
Love is touch, touch is love,
Love is reaching, reaching love,
Love is asking to be loved.
Love is you,
You and me,
Love is knowing,
We can be.
Love is free, free is love,
Love is living, living love,
Love is needing to be loved.
