Love Me Do by The Beatles because it was the first 'single' I ever had. I still have it now and I still love the song, however, I am no longer single and cannot marry Paul McCartney any more.
Keith Urbans - making memories of us. Our first dance song at our wedding! Still making memories everyday!!!
I Loved Her First, by Heartland, played as I danced with my daughter at her 16th Party, every word lets her know, that wherever she is, whoever she marries, I loved her first :-)
Tom Baxter - Better
Not only is this a wonderful song, but it reminds mr of the most wonderful women ever! My gorgeous wife... plus it was our first dance.
You are, by Dolly Parton. Our special song for 30 years
'Have I Told you Lately' Van Morrison - Both of us love this song and it's 'our' song.
Our favourite is There's a Star by Ash. We are going to have it as our first dance at our wedding.
Two less lonely people in the world, by Air Supply which was the opening song on sound track to our wedding video. It really sums up how we both felt and reinforces how lucky we continue to feel now. It's also one of the only songs that my husband can remember the words to!
You Make My Dreams Come True by Hall and Oates. Fantastic song, hilariously 80s video and now mine and my partners "song".
Areosmith - I don't want to miss a thing.
The night after I meet my husband I heard this song in a club and I realised i feel exactly this way about him.
I listened to it over and over the next day before I sent it to him :)
Mike and the Mechanics - Beggar on a Beach of Gold; the first gig my partner and I attended together and she still plays it in the car as a reminder almost 16 years later.
5ive -Keep on Movin'. No slushy songs here! We both love this song and know all the words. It reminds us the fun times we had over the years
My husband is the Metallica number 1 fan. His favourite is Enter Sandman. That is my choice for him. His 43rd birthday is coming up in May, and would be the best present!
Our favorite song is "I got you babe" by UB40
we always break into song when we hear it.
Much to the embarrassment of the kids !!!
whitesnake fool for your loving it was the song my future hubby was air guitaring to when we first met
"Merry Christmas Darling" by the Carpenters. It was the first Christmas for my boyfriend and I and we had to spend it apart, each with our own family. We have spent every Christmas together since and have been married for 37 years.
Milburn - Roll out the barrel. This is one of my other halfs favourite songs so this as a present would be amazing!
Bruce Springsteen, A long Time Coming...sums up everything my partner and I had to go through to get to where we are now.
It would be "The rest of my Life" by Brian McKnight.
and the reason, well before we were a proper couple, Mr G, gave me a blank CD at work one day. I was suffering from insomnia (i work shifts) and Mr G said next time you are awake at 3am, play this CD. 3 months later , at 3 am suffering from insomnia, i stumbled across it and played it. The first line refers to him also being awake at 3am and realising he has fallen in love with me! i was clueless to his feelings. there was and still is a happy ending, just wished i hadnt waited so long to play the CD!
"Take a look at my girlfriend" by Supertramp. 23 years ago my hubby and I had just met but spent the summer apart working on American summer camps. Whenever he heard this song on the radio it made him think of me! Now married and with 2 children we are as much in love as ever.
Just Like Heaven by The Cure - not for me, but my brother in law and his future wife are getting married this year and not long after they met we went to a festival but she couldn't make it and my brother in law called her when the band started this song and it was just so romantic. It will be the song they dance their first dance to.
paul carrack how long my wife loves it xxx
Wherever you will go by the calling was the song played at our wedding and also chosen by my unborn baby at the time. We used to play music to my tummy and thats the one she used to kick to!!!
My favourite song is gwen stefani's version of 'its my life' because its a feel good song and picks me up when im feeling low.
Bryan Adams - Heaven. It was a song my husband always used to play when we first got together and we then had it as our first dance.
Bangles - Eternal Flame had my First Kiss to this song with my now Husband. This song always bring back those memories 25 years on still very happy!
Five hundred miles by the Proclaimers, our first dance at our wedding - it got everyone up dancing as it wasn't a traditional first dance!
GOLDEN BROWN by The Stranglers - it reminds me of happy days at school in the 80s!!!
