Mine used to be I'll Be by Edwin McCain. It was our wedding song and I loved it.....until our wedding. We were married with a small, spur of the moment, outdoor ceremony. Most of our family came, even with just a days notice. DH knew this was my favorite song and surprised me by having it played when I walked down the aisle. So sweet, however when I got down the aisle the lady officiating just let it play. And play. And play. The entire song was played while we just stood there trying not to laugh. Don't they normally cut the music when you reach the alter? Anyway, now the song just reminds me of feeling totally awkward and I have no favorite "love song":)


ETA: I do love The Wonder of You by Elvis:)

"In Your Eyes" by Peter Gabriel, "Crash" by Dave Matthews Band, "You're Still the One" by Shania Twain, "All In" by Lifehouse, "God Gave Me You" by Dave Barnes, "All I Want Is You" and "With or Without You" by U2, "The Reason" by Hoobastank, "Crazy Little Thing Called Love" by Queen, "Faithfully" by Journey...I like some of the classics like "When a Man Loves a Woman", "Wonderful Tonight" (Eric Clapton) and "You Are So Beautiful" (Joe Cocker). "The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face", by Roberta Flack and a few by Nat King Cole.

Don't know if anyone answered this one, but it is mine:




And it took me all day long to think about this and come up with my definitive favorite love song.


OOPS -- I walked down the aisle to this (here is the version with the lyrics http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fAnaFxaioFI&feature=related ) the instrumental version:

Somebody by Depeche Mode, of course. When I was a teenager, that was what we all swooned to, and the ultimate in romance was slow-dancing to that song with the guy you liked. I don't think I ever did do that, until last Friday, when the teens at my church threw a 'Parents' Prom'* and of course they played Somebody, and I got to dance with my honey. :001_wub:


Our actual song is Fields of Gold, by Sting.





*And we showed them how to party. Apparently the teens in our area mostly stand around at church dances, which is not the proper procedure AT ALL.
