Post subject: Wedding songs, funeral songsReply with quote

Just for fun, cos it's so boring without footy, what are the songs you want to have (or did have) at your wedding, and what song would you have played at your funeral? This was a subject brought up at our table at my brother's wedding, and it caused a lot of laughs.
As far as I'm concerned, I'd have Thank You by Dido at my wedding, as well as You're My Best Friend by Queen; and at my funeral I've told my partner I want Time of Your Life (Good Riddance) by Green Day.

i've always wanted 'when i look to the sky' by train.

When it rains it pours and opens doors
that flood the floors we thought would always
keep us safe and dry
And in the midst of sailing ships
we sink our lips into the ones we love
That have to say goodbye

And as I float along this ocean
I can feel you like a notion that won’t seem to let me go

Cause when I look to the sky
something tells me you’re here with me
And you make everything alright
And when I feel like I’m lost
something tells me you’re here with me
And I can always find my way when you are here

And every word I didn’t say
that caught up in some busy day
And every dance on the kitchen floor
we didn’t have before
Every sunset that we’ll miss
I’ll wrap them all up in a kiss
Pick you up in all of this when I sail away

While I float upon this ocean
I can feel you like a notion that I hope will never leave

Cause when I look to the sky
something tells me you’re here with me
And you make everything alright
When I feel like I’m lost
something tells me you’re here with me
And I can always find my way

Whether I'm up or down or in or out
or just plain overhead
Instead it just feels like it is impossible to fly
But with you I can spread my wings
to see me over everything
that life may send me when I am hoping it won’t pass me by

When I feel like there is no one
that will ever know me
there you are to show me

When I look to the sky
something tells me you’re here with me
You make everything alright
And when I feel like I’m lost
something tells me you’re here with me
And I can always find my way when you are here

When I look to the sky
something tells me you’re here with me
You make everything alright
And when I feel like I’m lost
something tells me you’re here with me
And I can always find my way when you are here



when bon jovi released the 'this left feels right album' (it has acoustic versions of many of bon jovi's biggest hits) in 2003, i fell in love with it once again. for everyone who hasnt heard it, i really suggest you do

This ain't a song for the broken-hearted
No silent prayer for the faith-departed
I ain't gonna be just a face in the crowd
You're gonna hear my voice
When I shout it out loud

It's my life
It's now or never
I ain't gonna live forever
I just want to live while I'm alive
(it's my life)
My heart is like an open highway
Like frankie said
I did it my way
I just wanna live while I'm alive
It's my life

This is for the ones who stood their ground
For tommy and gina who never backed down
Tomorrow's getting harder make no mistake
Luck ain't even lucky
Got to make your own breaks

It's my life
And it's now or never
I ain't gonna live forever
I just want to live while I'm alive
(it's my life)
My heart is like an open highway
Like frankie said
I did it my way
I just want to live while I'm alive
'cause it's my life

Better stand tall when they're calling you out
Don't bend, don't break, baby, don't back down

It's my life
And it's now or never
'cause I ain't gonna live forever
I just want to live while I'm alive
(it's my life)
My heart is like an open highway
Like frankie said
I did it my way
I just want to live while I'm alive

It's my life
And it's now or never
'cause I ain't gonna live forever
I just want to live while I'm alive
(it's my life)
My heart is like an open highway
Like frankie said
I did it my way
I just want to live while I'm alive
'cause it's my life!

I walked down the aisle to the instrumental theme music of St Elmo's Fire. We had Kylie's "Love at First Sight" for our dance song. (We had everyone up on the dancefloor - it wasn't just the two of us).

At my funeral, I want "November Rain by G n R and also "When You're Gone by Avril Lavigne.

i want my wedding song to be 'float away' by a friend of mine, scott mellis.

you can check it out at http://www.triplejunearthed.com/Artists/View.aspx?artistid=4240 and listen to it online, its the 3rd one on the right.

i remember a couple of years ago when i told him how much i loved it and wanted it as my bridal waltz song, he said he would change it to a death metal version, lol.

Wow, I've never thought about it. I can't think of a song that I like that is meaningful enough. Can I have the Salmon Dance at my funeral?

i quite like your wedding song which dismays me no end. i think i'd have 'find yourself' by brad paisley [from the movie cars] or 'from here to eternity' by michael peterson. strangely both country singers.

When you find yourself
In some far off place
And it causes you to rethink some things
You start to sense that slowly
You're becoming someone else
And then you find yourself

When you make new friends in a brand new town
And you start to think about settlin' down
The things that would have been lost on you
Are now clear as a bell
And you find yourself
Yeah that's when you find yourself

Where you go through life
So sure of where you’re headin'
And you wind up lost and it's
The best thing that could have happened
‘Cause sometimes when you lose your way it's really just as well
Because you find yourself
Yeah that’s when you find yourself

When you meet the one
That you've been waitin' for
And she's everything that you want and more
You look at her and you finally start to live for some one else
And then you find yourself
That’s when you find yourself

When we go through life
So sure of where we're headin'
And we wind up lost and it's
The best thing that could have happened
‘Cause sometimes when you lose your way it's really just as well
Because you find yourself
Yeah that's when you find yourself


=====

I did everything I could to get you here tonight
Without telling you why
Now girl if you only would, please hold out your hand
Just close your eyes
I've been dying to ask you one burning question
Will you be mine?

From here to eternity
I'm asking you to share your life with me
Now and forever I guarantee, I'll always stay by your side
I promise my love to you
I'm willing and able and ready to
Whatever you need
I am here for you, and I'll always be
From here to eternity

I saved a year for this ring
I can't wait to see
How it looks on your hand
I'll give you everything that one woman needs
From a one woman man
I'll be strong I'll be tender a man of my word
I will be yours.

From here to eternity
I'm asking you to share your life with me
Now and forever I guarantee, I'll always stay by your side
I promise my love to you
I'm willing and able and ready to
Whatever you need
I am here for you, and I'll always be
From here to eternity

Funeral - any old dirge will do. "The Funeral Party" by The Cure is rather apt.

Two pale figures
Ache in silence
Timeless
In the quiet ground
Side by side
In age and sadness

I watched
And acted wordlessly
As piece by piece
You performed your story
Moving through an unknown past
Dancing at the funeral party

Memories of childrens' dreams
Lie lifeless
Fading
Lifeless
Hand in hand with fear and shadows
Crying at the funeral party

I heard a song
And turned away
As piece by piece
You performed your story
Noiselessly across the floor
Dancing at the funeral party


I'd actually go for "Another One Bites the Dust" by Queen if it wasn't such a cliche.

Wedding - "Dancing" by Elisa is a lovely song. "Run Wild" by New Order also comes to mind.

I am walking down the aisle to 'November Rain' by Guns & Roses. I've been saying that ever since I've known that song.. It's such an awesome song Very Happy

My wedding dance is going to be 'Your Everything' by Keith Urban (Surprise, Surprise.. It's a Keith song!)

The first time I looked in your eyes I knew,
That I would do anything for you.
The first time you touched my face I felt,
What I never felt with anyone else.
I wanna give back what you've given to me,
And I wanna witness all of your dreams.
Now that you've shown me,
Who I really am.
I wanna be more than just your man.

I wanna be the wind that fills your sails,
And be the hand that lifts your veil.
Be the moon that moves your tide,
The sun comin up in your eyes.
Be the wheel that never rusts,
And be the spark that lights you up.
All that you've been dreaming of & more,
So much more.
I wanna be your everything.

When you wake up,
I'll be the first thing you see.
And when it gets dark,
You can reach out to me.
I'll cherish your words,
And I'll finish your thoughts.
I'll be your compass baby,
When you get lost.

I wanna be the wind that fills your sails,
And be the hand that lifts your veil.
Be the moon that moves your tide,
The sun comin up in your eyes.
Be the wheel that never rusts,
And be the spark that lights you up.
All that you've been dreaming of & more,
So much more.
I wanna be your everything.

I'll be the wheel that never rusts,
And be the spark that lights you up.
All that you've been dreaming of & more,
So much more.
I wanna be your everything.

I wanna be your everything.
I wanna be your everything.


Here's the link to the video clip.. http://au.youtube.com/watch?v=RI24VNtAMv8

At my funeral, I want the Collingwood theme song, any song of Keith's, and 'The Dance' by Garth Brooks..

It is one of my most favourite songs of all time, and the video clip ALWAYS makes me shed a tear or two.. The song, as wikipedia puts it, is written with a double meaning both as a love song about the end of a passionate relationship and the lyrics also work to tell the story of someone dying because of something they believe in, or a moment of glory.

The video clip features footage of people who have died for a dream they have.. It shows footage of Lane Frost, Keith Whitley, Martin Luther King Jr, the crew of the space shuttle Challenger, JFK, and John Wayne.

Looking back on the memory of,
The dance we shared beneath the stars above.
For a moment, All the world was right.
How could I have known you'd ever say goodbye?

And now, I'm glad I didn't know,
The way it all would end. The way it all would go.
Our lives are better left to chance.
I could have missed the pain,
But I'd of had to miss the dance.

Holding you, I held everything.
For a moment, Wasn't I the King?
But if I'd only known, How the King would fall,
Hey, Who's to say you know I might have changed it all.

And now, I'm glad I didn't know,
The way it all would end. The way it all would go.
Our lives are better left to chance.
I could have missed the pain,
But I'd of had to miss the dance.

Yes, my life is better left to chance.
I could have missed the pain,
But I'd of had to miss the dance..


Here's the link.. http://au.youtube.com/watch?v=2E0-laiA7gI

Garth also has another video that makes me cry.. It's called 'The Change', and all the footage in the video clip is from the Oklahoma City bombing. It is sooo sad.. Sad

Love always, Alyssa xoxo

So tasteful Razz

Better not die in the Emirates then, right? I don't think strippers and funerals go together over there. I don't think strippers and anything go together over there.
