An Everlong Kiss The Girl?

After previously deciding we could dance to “Kiss the Girl” from The Little Mermaid, Mr. Kiwi has decided it’s not cool enough.

This is Ariel, sad that he wants something else.

Of course, I love “Kiss the Girl”, always have. He’s loved Foo Fighter’s acoustic version of “Everlong”, always has. We may even be able to have a friend play it for us. Mr. Kiwi agrees that “Kiss the Girl” is a little more themed for us as a couple and “Everlong” is a little less, and ” just awesome”. I love “Everlong”, the acoustic version is lovely, but is it really a first dance song? I love how Mr. Kiwi is passionate about this song, and how it’s something HE really wants, but the acoustic version is REALLY hard to find.

Everlong Lyrics (for your consideration)

Hello
I’ve waited here for you
Everlong

Tonight I throw myself into
And out of the red
Out of her head she sang

Come down
And waste away with me
Down with me

Slow how
You wanted it to be
I’m over my head
Out of her head she sang

And I wonder
When I sing along with you
If everything could ever feel this real forever
If anything could ever be this good again
The only thing I’ll ever ask of you
You’ve got to promise not to stop when I say when…she sang

Breathe out so I can breathe you in
Hold you in
And now I know you’ve always been
Out of your head
Out of my head I sang

And I wonder
When I sing along with you
If everything could ever feel this real forever
If anything could ever be this good again
The only thing I’ll ever ask of you
You’ve got to promise not to stop when I say when
she sang

And I wonder
If everything could ever feel with real forever
If anything could be this good again
The only thing I’ll ever ask of you
You got to promise not to stop when I say when

I think Mr. Kiwi’s recent unhappiness regarding our “song” is due to all the weddings we have attended. They have all had the first dance to “At Last” by Etta James. It’s a beautiful song, and a timeless choice for a reason. He’s just thinking about how our wedding needs to have more “personalization” to it - the ribbons, the invites, the favors, they’re all common, and we saw the exact same thing at his cousin’s wedding. Now he wants to stand out and since the ribbons and favors are already bought, we need something else. He wants a new song. A SPECIAL song.

Other than playing the Monday Night Football theme song, I have no other ideas for a first dance song that isn’t the norm. I guess it’s “Everlong” for us.

Are you doing a different kind of first dance song?

    I’m currently sobbing along to Patty Griffin’s “Heavenly Day”. My boy wasn’t as blown away as I was, so it’s not gonna be our first dance, but you can bet yer bippy that it’ll be featured on our favor CD! (you can listen to it on her myspace page)
