Still Searching for a Song

After a couple of weeks of break, the search for “The Song” was back on.

For this third batch of song links I sent Mr. Boa, I tried to find some (around 60) “regular” songs that I liked.

Some of our top picks from that list were:

“Songbird” Glee Cast Version

Video via YouTube

“That’s All” by Michael Buble

Video via YouTube

“Everything” by Lifehouse

Video via YouTube

We really liked these songs, but none of them felt like “The Song.”

Then something wonderful happened! One evening as I lay in bed doing homework, my FI walked in.

Mr. B: What song are you listening too?
Me: “I Belong to You” by Eros Ramazzotti and Anastacia. Why do you ask?
Mr. B: ”˜Cause I think we just found our wedding song.
Me: *Jumps off bed, hugs FI, all while squealing like an excited piggy*

So there you have it, folks. After seven months of intense wedding-song searching, we finally picked one and it’s perfect for us. It’s the sappy love-song type we wanted, it’s partly in Spanish so our guests will understand at least half, and the lyrics are really beautiful.

I present to you our first-dance song, “I Belong to You” by Eros Ramazzotti and Anastacia! (And yes, I do get all teary eyed every time I listen to it!)

    Thats a beautiful song! Ours was Lady by Kenny Rogers (which i love dearly now, and can’t think of any better song for us) but when plannning, I had wanted Shania Twain’s You’ve got a way (which we used as our last song of the night). My husband picked our wedding song 🙂

    We went through a similar task not that long ago, FI wanted a song by his favourite Australian band Powderfinger but they are a rock band. I suggested maybe 23 songs and he wasn’t sold on them but one day on youtube I found an acoustic version of one of his favourite Powderfinger songs, emailed the guy who did it asking if we could use it and we would pay. He replied and said we could use it for free! Both of us love our song and our rock’n’roll dance t go with it.

    It’s a lovely song. It’s one of those bilingual songs that click and melt the lenguages.
