Long time readers may remember a post where I mentioned music during weddings that I photographed. Couples would often play what they considered to be their songs. Some were sweet, but most were so gut wrenching.
When I first started being an assistant at a studio many young couples used that horrid Bryan Adams ballad 'Everything I do I do it for You'. It was insanely popular especially considering the Robin Hood film, which featured the tune on it's soundtrack, was a mega it. Couples all over declared it their song and many walked down the aisle or danced their first dance to it.
As we know pop music trends change at the drop of a hat and soon couples were declaring their choice for songs like 'I Swear', 'How do I Live Without You', and 'My Heart Will Go On'. What's funny is that each couple felt like they were being so original and that no other bride and groom would ever consider using an over played top 40 song.
Well taking a trip down memory lane I was reminded of songs that were declared as 'our songs' in previous relationships. Often I hang my head in shame when I think of some of the music I agreed to be forever associated with our courtship. Take a click below, listen to the sugary goodness, and you'll understand why I shudder.
Oh the horror.
"There's a saying, 'It's easy to write songs, but very difficult to write great songs.' I'm going through that right now." - Bryan Adams
